"Cholent is a Saturday lunch standard in many Jewish homes. Every family has their signature cholent. This recipe took me twelve years to perfect, and includes secrets I learned from ten different families. Cholent is meant to be experimented with. Some interesting additions you may want to try are soy sauce, honey, Mrs. Dash®, paprika, or left-over beef gravy. "

  1. Heat the oil in a large soup pot over medium heat; cook and stir the onion and garlic until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the beef stew meat, and quickly brown the pieces on all sides. Stir in the potatoes, sweet potato, baked beans, ketchup, barbecue sauce, mustard, onion soup mix, seasoned salt, and steak seasoning, and pour in enough water to cover. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook on low heat until the beef is tender, 1 1/2 to 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
  2. Stir in the pearl barley, and transfer the stew to a slow cooker set on Low until the barley is tender, about 12 hours.

Well, I made this for dinner today. First, if Fall had a taste, this is what it would taste like! I browned the beef, added the onions,garlic & salt. Put in CP added the rest, Including the pear...

Gave it three stars only because the recommendation to use 1/2 cup of barley was off. It should be a 1/4 or less or not at all. I like barley, but doing this in the crock pot with so many starch...

This was pretty good, although I don't think my kids liked it. They SAID they liked it, but then they only ate about half of their portions and put the rest back. That's okay...more leftovers ...

Decent but surprisingly bland even with all the ingredients. I even added a bay leaf and some thyme but it was super plain...maybe if you doubled everything but to me it wasn't worth trying agai...

I am always looking for new slow cooker recipes so when I found this I thought I would give it a try. I was unfamiliar with cholent, which I have now concluded is a kind of versatile beef stew. ...

delicious!! cholent is a tricky dish to make just right and this recipe is perfect! the consistency is right on target, not too watery or too thick and the flavors all mesh together wonderfully ...

Never heard of Cholent before I saw this recipe but it got me with the sweet potato! This was very good and I'll be making it as soon as our weather gets colder.

I have made a similar version of this which I called Poverty's Cholent Delight. Instead of water, I used beef broth for taste and added A1 Steak Sauce and Worcestershire Sauce to compliment the ...

This was mediocre at best. I must admit, the ingredient list (the combination alone) intrigued me. This didn't taste terrible... it's just BLAND! My fiance added s&p to taste and said that seeme...
