Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish new year, and this year it begins on the evening of September 29 and ends the evening of October 1. Typical dishes include apples dipped in honey, roasted salmon, and roasted beef along with various fruits and pastries. However, if you’re looking for something a little bit different this year, or if you don’t celebrate Rosh Hashanah but would like to try some interesting recipes anyway, we’ve got you covered at NetCost Market with these twists on the classics! All the main ingredients can be found in our weekly specials.
Typical roast beef can get a bit boring, so why not try this brilliant Hawaiian spin on slow-cooked brisket?! It brings together the sweet stickiness of pineapple and the saltiness of beef brisket to give you a cut of meat that literally melts in your mouth. What’s more, both pineapple and brisket are currently part of our weekly specials!

Roasted salmon is a classic at Rosh Hashanah, and this recipe is a great twist on the classic by incorporating beets as part of the marinade to give it a slightly different flavor. Right now, we’ve got fresh salmon fillets and Idaho potatoes as part of our weekly specials, giving you all the more reason to try this delicious dish!
