Ingredients

  • 2 celery ribs, chopped

  • 1/4 cup rendered chicken fat or canola oil
  • 4 cups matzo farfel
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

In a large skillet, saute celery and onion in chicken fat until tender. Add farfel; cook and stir over medium heat until lightly browned. Stir in the parsley.
Combine the egg, broth, salt, sage, paprika and pepper; add to farfel mixture. Cook over low heat until liquid is absorbed, stirring occasionally.
Just before baking, evenly stuff the farfel mixture into the veal breast pocket; close and tie several times with kitchen string. Place in a greased shallow roasting pan. Brush veal with oil.
