perhaps the previous reviewer is just unfamiliar with cholent but cholent generally does turn brown and lose some of its distinct form. i sometimes like to add a pareve kishka to the recipe and then break it up and stir it in right before i serve Read More

I am sorry SuperRebbetzin but I did not care for your recipe. I went to a lot of trouble to get the ingredients spent quite a while cutting everything up and sorting and washing the beans. The result after cooking it last night was a dry strange-tasting brownish-black gluey mixture. I am an experienced cook and followed you recipe exactly. Is there a mistake in the recipe? I have to mark a star but I wouldn't even give it one star. Read More

It was great! we were thrilled to find this recipe and try it out! My husband really liked it and the kids did too. I put it in the crockpot mid-friday afternoon and had for lunch on saturday. It was great, texture was good and flavor delicious. I wasnt able to get the beets before making it, but am looking forward to trying it with some! Read More

I based a vegetarian cholent off this recipe and it was a big hit. However I omitted the sweet potatoes and added a little barley and rice to thicken it up. I think I've found a new fav. shabbos cholent recipe... Read More

This is a kind of comfort food! I loved the combination of the beans, barley, potatoes and onions! I used pinto beans instead of the kidney beans, changed the ketchup and BBQ sauce to be tomato sauce, and omitted the brown sugar. I didn't cook this all day, but cooked the beans and barley, then added the rest of the ingredients; when the liquid had cooked in, the flavors had combined nicely! I found that the inventor of the Crock Pot™ developed that with memories of his mother telling his grandmother's stories about cholent cooking all day, so I had to find out what cholent was! Thanks for sharing the recipe! Read More

You gotta love cholent in the first place but this is a great and easy recipe. I had chick peas and not white beans so I made that change. I also added a uncooked eggs in the shell to lay on top of the cholent mixture so they cook with the cholent. When done they come out a delicious brown inside and out and make a nice addition to your Shabbat lunch. Read More

Perhaps it was the barbecue sauce (Jack Daniels Original) but this was a genuine disappointment... not a recipe that I ever plan to make again. Read More
