The Beracha on a Dish of Rice and Meat

The Beracha on a Dish of Rice and Meat

Day: Thursday
Date: June 23, 2016
Parshat: Biha'aloticha
Yalkut Yosef: O"H: 212

In memory of Hannah bat Shelomo.

One who is eating a dish of rice mixed with meat or chicken says mezonot on the rice and no separate beracha on the meat. This is especially true if the foods were cooked together. However, if the meat and the rice are not mixed together and they will each be eaten separately, then the meat does get its own beracha. By the same token, one who has a mixture of rice and peas or rice and carrots etc. says a beracha on the rice and nothing on the peas or carrots. However, if they are separate and are being eaten separately, each gets its own beracha. Obviously, if any of these are eaten as part of a meal with bread, no beracha is said on these foods.

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