At What Point is a Dish Considered "Dry"?

At What Point is a Dish Considered "Dry"?
Day: Wednesday
Date: July 2, 2014
Parshat: Balak
Yalkut Yosef: 318

In order for a dish to be considered "dry" it does not need to be completely devoid of any liquid. Even if there is a small amount of liquid present in the food it is considered dry. If there is more than a small amount of liquid, like meat with a significant amount of gravy or soup etc. it may not be heated up on Shabbat. Ashkenazim are more lenient in this regard and may heat on Shabbat liquid that was cooked before Shabbat as long it hasn't cooled down fuly and is still warm.

The DSH is brought to you in memory of Rabbi Mordechai ben Daniel. Please visit us online at
