Chef Jose Gonzalez of Benjie's Deli in Santa Ana, Calif., demonstrates how to make Jewish meat knishes. The recipe is from owner Lloyd Weinstein's grandmother, Sarah Feingold. The technique and dough are identical for Jewish potato knishes. In case you're wondering, here's How A Shiksa Learned to Cook Jewish Food.
