  • hello this is chef john from food wishes calm with knishes that's right i got a
  • food wish for a knish which was actually submitted a long time ago but if you've
  • read the fine print on our Terms of Service food wishes have no expiration
  • date and I'm finally getting around to showing you one of my all-time favorite
  • snacks which I used to enjoy with my father
  • every time we go to Coney Island so not only am i taking care of a viewers
  • request I'm also attempting to recapture my
  • youth which is kind of nice and to get started we're gonna make a very very
  • simple dough that we'll begin by adding some salt and baking powder to some
  • all-purpose flour and then we'll take a whisk and give that a thorough mix and
  • once that's been accomplished we will make a well in the center and proceed to
  • add our wet ingredients which will include one large beaten egg a little
  • touch of vinegar or lemon juice a whole bunch of vegetable oil and then last but
  • not least some warm water all right basically the same temperature we'd use
  • for a yeast dough even though this recipe does not include yeast and then
  • what we'll do is get right in there with our hand and we'll mix this until it
  • comes together into a very very soft ball of dough and even though this dough
  • is very wet and soft because it has so much oil in it it's really not that
  • sticky so I find this to be an extremely enjoyable dough to work with and then
  • what we'll do once that's all pulled together is transferred onto a floured
  • surface and we will need that for about three or four minutes until we have a
  • very smooth very soft fairly elastic dough oh by the way this dough recipe
  • will make sixteen knishes although for the video I'm only gonna make eight
  • today and if you were to do the same you can freeze the dough for future use but
  • anyway like I said we'll go ahead knead the dough until we have something as
  • smooth soft and elastic at which point we're gonna wrap that in plastic and
  • we'll go ahead and let that rest in the fridge for an hour or two while we move
  • on to make our filling which in the classic version at least is made up
  • mostly of potatoes so I went ahead and peeled and quartered three russets that
  • we're gonna boil in salted water until just tender as tested with a knife oh by
  • the way you see that little brown spot where I made
  • one of the eyes for your information that is not toxic or poisonous which
  • some people believe but it's not so relaxed and then what we'll do what's
  • our potatoes are cooked is drain those very well and we'll transfer those into
  • a mixing bowl and proceeded to mash them or I guess rice them if you have a ricer
  • which I think we've already established I don't but anyway we'll go ahead and
  • smash those up and those are not ready to finish with what traditionally would
  • be a lot of onions fried in chicken fat although we're going to be doing a
  • little bit of a twist on that today so we'll go ahead and set those aside and
  • move on to the aforementioned twist which is going to be to chop up some
  • leftover corned beef and cabbage so yes we're doing a very special post st.
  • Patrick's Day leftover edition and we'll chop up a few would are hopefully fairly
  • fatty pieces of corned beef as well as a little bit of that leftover braised
  • cabbage and if you do plan on adding extra meats and vegetables to your
  • potato onion mixture I think we want to make sure we chop it up pretty fine and
  • you'll see why when we actually form our knishes so we'll go ahead and chop that
  • stuff up fairly fine in which point we'll head to the stove
  • where we're gonna add one diced onion to a whole bunch of melted butter set over
  • medium heat along with of course a nice big pinch of salt and we will also add
  • in our corned beef and cabbage and then we would usually just saute this until
  • the onions turn translucent but not this time all right we're gonna cook this for
  • about ten minutes or so until several things happen okay our
  • onions are gonna soften and sweet and in turn of golden brown as well as our
  • little pieces of cabbage are gonna caramelize which is one of the most
  • underrated delicious flavors ever and it may be most importantly that fat is
  • going to render out of our corned beef and add a beautiful richness to this
  • mixture all right as I mentioned Trucial a this would have a ton of chicken fat
  • in it also known as schmaltz which is amazing but I didn't have any around so
  • to make up for that we're going to use butter infused with corn beef fat which
  • ended up working very nicely so we're gonna take our time here and we're going
  • to cook our mixture until it looks a little something like this in which
  • point we'll go ahead and transfer that into our mashed potatoes and we'll
  • season that up very simply with some kosher salt
  • some freshly ground black pepper and a little touch of cayenne and we'll take
  • our spatula and mix all that together and believe it or not that's it we will
  • simply give that a taste for seasoning and assuming it has enough salt and or
  • whatever else your flavouring this with we'll just let that cool down to room
  • temp before moving on to final production which means pulling out our
  • now well-rested dough and we'll place that on a nice floured surface and we'll
  • just a little more flour over the top and then we'll go ahead and press this
  • out with our hands into a rectangular shape oh and just a quick reminder that
  • we're only using half the dough we made but anyway we'll go ahead and press that
  • out and then we'll switch to a rolling pin and we will roll that out into a
  • nice big rectangle about an eighth of an inch thick and as usual just getting it
  • close with the rolling pin and then we could do a little fine-tuning by
  • stretching and pulling the corners and then once that's been accomplished we
  • can go ahead and place down about three cups or so of our filling which by now
  • should be fully cooled down to room temp and we'll place that down on the dough
  • as shown about three inches from the edge and this is probably a good time to
  • remind you you can literally put anything you want in these ok broccoli
  • mushrooms other kind of meats but anyway we'll go ahead and place on our filling
  • as evenly as possible and then once that set before we roll this up we'll go
  • ahead and paint on some egg wash along the opposite edge and in case you're new
  • around here an egg wash is simply one egg that's beaten with a couple
  • teaspoons of water and then once that's been applied we will go ahead and
  • stretch our dough over the top and it's okay if we stretch this really thin in
  • fact it's probably better and then once our fillings being covered we'll go
  • ahead and roll that over and we will continue rolling until we have just a
  • couple inches of dough left and as we're doing this we'll want to try to keep
  • this as uniform as possible and by the way when you get near the end if you
  • happen to tear or rip your dough like I just did don't worry about it as you'll
  • see once these are formed and baked they're gonna look amazing and you'll
  • never know the difference but anyway like I said we'll go ahead
  • and roll that until we have just a couple inches of dough left at which
  • point we'll go ahead and grab that and stretch it over the top and then once
  • that's happened we'll kind of roll this over so the seams on the bottom and
  • we'll also want to make sure we give both ends a nice pressing so our filling
  • is trapped and that's it at this point we can do a
  • little fine-tuning by giving it a little roll like this to make sure that tube is
  • as uniform as possible and then you're probably going to have a couple extra
  • inches of dough on the ends which we will trim off as we see fit and then
  • what we'll do is take our bench scraper or the back of a knife and we will
  • divide this into eight equal pieces but do not cut through we are just making
  • marks for equal portions and maybe possibly trim in a little more dough off
  • the end and then once we have our dough marked we can move on to the most fun
  • part of this production and that would be cutting these up with the side of our
  • hand alright so make sure the side of your hand is floured and then we're
  • gonna cut these by pressing our hand straight down through it's sort of
  • rubbing it back and forth until we hit the table although generally I like to
  • press first and then finish separating these with the final rubbing cuts and
  • while there are so many ways you can cut and shape these this is definitely my
  • favorite and there's something about the way that dough is smeared when we make
  • these cuts which i think helps give them such a unique appearance once they're
  • baked and then once those are portion here's how we're gonna shape them we're
  • simply gonna flip it up on its end so that one cut ends on the bottom with the
  • other one facing up and then we'll simply shape these by squishing them
  • down sort of tucking everything into the center as we press this down into a puck
  • shape and I know it looks a little odd and possibly provocative but as you'll
  • see these are gonna bake up beautifully okay so let's try that one more time
  • okay once separated we will tip that up so one cuts on the bottom and the other
  • cuts on the top and then we sort of flatten impress while we're tucking
  • everything into the center oh by the way if you notice that bubble that is not a
  • problem all right a few bubbles here and there are actually a good sign and
  • that's it once we finish our knishes we'll go ahead and transfer those onto a
  • lined baking sheet but before we do we're gonna brush the bottoms with oil
  • and very generously and that's going to help us achieve a nice beautifully Brown
  • bottom and then what we're gonna do once those have been panned up as shown is
  • finished by brushing these all over with some egg wash which is optional a lot of
  • people don't use anything or if you want you can actually brush these with oil
  • which is going to give you a little bit of a different possibly crisper texture
  • so you decide I mean you are after all the
  • Commissioner of your knishes conditioner take that MF DOOM but anyway the point
  • is use what you want or nothing but I do like the texture and color the egg wash
  • gives it and that's it once those have been brushed those are ready to transfer
  • into the center of a 375 degree oven for about 40 minutes or so or until lightly
  • golden brown and looking something like this check it out I think the owners
  • Chimel would be proud and thanks to that oh we brushed on the bottom should be
  • nicely browned and then if you want you can eat these hot but I don't recommend
  • it I think they are significantly more delicious just barely warm or room
  • temperature so you do what you want but I let mine cool down all the way before
  • plating up and I went in for a bite and that my friends is some extreme a carbon
  • car back ssin as in extremely delicious and extremely comforting and extremely
  • filling all right long before energy bars came around this is the kind of
  • thing people snacked on to keep him going through a long hard day at work
  • and as much as I love the classic potato onion chicken fat version for my
  • childhood this slightly less fattier version with the corned beef and cabbage
  • was amazing and since they are so delicious at room temp they are perfect
  • for things like picnics and cookouts or just something to put in your lunch bag
  • to bring to work to tease your coworkers especially the ones due in quito you are
  • definitely gonna want to eat this in front of them but no matter where you
  • plan to eat this or what you plan to put in it I really do hope you give these
  • delicious knishes a try soon so head over to food wishes comm for all the
  • ingredient amounts of Martha as usual and as always enjoy
