Ingredients

1.5 Cup matzo meal
1/2 to 3/4 Tsp salt
1/2 to 3/4 Tsp garlic powder
1/2 to 3/4 Tsp onion powder
1/2 to 3/4 Tsp white pepper (optional)
4 Eggs
5 Tbsp melted schmaltz (or substitute grapeseed oil)
2 Tbsp minced fresh dill
4 Quarts soup broth or salted water

Method

In a mixing bowl using a fork mix your dry ingredients the matzo meal, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, pepper.

Use another bowl and a fork to mix your eggs and schmaltz together. Don’t overmix.

Now pour the egg mix into the dry ingredients and then add in the dill weed.

Now put the bowl of the matzo meal mixture in the fridge for 45 to 60 minutes.

Heat up your 4-5 quarts of chicken stock. Cooking the matzo balls is best in stock.

Be careful the matzo balls will absorb lots of the liquid.

Now bring your broth to the boil over medium heat.

Now take your matzo ball mix and make 1 inch round balls to put in the broth.

When the broth boils gently add your matzo balls to the broth.

Cover your pot with the lid on a canted angle and cook the balls for 30 minutes or until the balls sink to the bottom of the pot.

Ladle your broth into bowls and add 2 to 3 matzo balls to the broth and serve. Enjoy!

  1. 😊Richard, thank you so much for this video! I’m of West Indian decent but I love trying different varieties of soup from different cultures. I never tried Matzo Ball Soup before. There’s so many videos and it’s a bit overwhelming trying to figure out what’s traditional, my questions for you is how do you add flavor to the Matzo Balls without the cloudiness? And do you recommend roasting the chicken for more added flavor? For me sometimes raw chicken alone into boiling water freaks me out! Lol I also saw videos online and read comments about some people not using the parsnips, dill, & parsley what are your thoughts? I want to make this soup for myself and family but I want to keep it traditional. It’s one thing not to have certain ingredients on hand, but when people go left on the recipe not keeping it true to its authenticity it’s a problem.

  2. I love sinkers…my mom made great ones…but we didn’t have schmaltz…it’s making a come back…probably can get it at a kosher butcher cause I don’t want to spend time rendering it…great video
