  • 4 large eggs (separated)
  • 1 tsp sea salt (or kosher salt)
  • 1 pinch onion powder
  • 2 tbsp butter (melted, or 2 tbsp fat from the chicken stock)
  • 1 tbsp dried dill (or 2 tbsp fresh dill, chopped)
  • 1 tbsp dried parsley (or 2 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped)
  • 3/4 cup Matzoh meal
  • 2 cup Matzoh Ball Soup stock (set aside after making the stock)
  • 2 cup water


  • Chill a stainless-steel mixing bowl.
  • Once the bowl is chilled, separate the eggs and place the egg whites in the chilled bowl.
  • Using an electric mixer or stand mixer, beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks. Put them in the fridge to chill until you need them.
  • In the bowl with the egg yolks, add the salt, onion powder, melted butter or chicken fat, parsley, and dill. Mix well.
  • Mix in the Matzoh meal, a little bit at a time, until well-combined.
  • Fold in the egg whites, about a quarter of the egg whites at a time.
  • Once thoroughly mixed, cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Refrigerate overnight to save spoons
  • Once the Matzoh Ball mix has chilled and you're ready to make the soup, in a 3 qt Instant Pot, add the 2 cups of stock you set aside, 2 cups of water, and the trivet. Turn on the Instant Pot to Saute. Heat until it boils, about 5 minutes.
  • While the stock is heating up, roll the Matzoh balls into 2 cm balls (3/4 inch).
  • Once the stock/water mixture is boiling, lightly drop the balls into the pot using a spoon. Make sure the balls are floating and not sticking to the trivet. The trivet is there just in case one falls apart so it doesn't burn.
  • Put on the lid. Click Cancel. Set to High Pressure for 12 minutes. Natural Release Pressure for 10 minutes, then quick release any remaining pressure.
  • Put the cooked Matzoh Balls in a dish and set aside until ready to serve.
  • Save the stock/water mix in case you need to top up a canning jar or a portion you are preparing for freezing.
