What is Passover Meat Thang?
That’s a really really good question. The Passover Meat Thang is a Matten Family tradition. It started out years ago as a take on a meat lasagna…without cheese, or noodles, or just about anything else that would traditionally be called a lasagna.
So…we came up with the extraordinarily creative name of Passover Meat Thang.
It is absolutely a Matten Family favorite that is requested every single year.
How I make the Passover Meat Thang
The Passover Meat Thang is incredibly quick to make for something so delicious.
I love this recipe because you can use glutenous or gluten free matzoh. In the one I made for this post, I used gluten free matzoh, but it’s totally up to you.
Here’s how the recipe goes.
Take a piece of matzoh. Pour some chicken stock over it. Spread meat over it.
Pour sauce over the whole thing.
Tightly wrap and bake for a hour and half.
Passover Meat Thang can end up looking like a mess…just go with it
If you let the Passover Meat Thang rest before you cut it, it actually cuts pretty well.
Most of the time.
The gluten free matzoh melted a little into the “Thang”, and it ended up being easy to cut. I’ve also been known to use a lot more meat in the filling, creating a super high meat tower of joy.
I used two pounds of ground beef in this recipe but depending upon my mood, I’ve used up to four pounds making it super meaty!!!
Passover Meat Thang is always a hit!
It’s a little shocking how something so simple is so good.
I’m not kidding when I tell you that everyone love Passover Meat Thang.
