This is a traditional kosher beef stew called cholent which is cooked overnight on a low flame so as to avoid cooking on the Sabbath. Very robust and delicious.
Cholent is a staple in our homes for Saturday lunch!!! So easy and so quick. We use a crock pot and put it on low until the next morning. - 26 Feb 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
THIS WAS A GREAT RECIPE FOR OUR FIRST SABBATH FOR OUR FRIDAY EVENING MEAL. I USED MY CROCK POT. IT WENT SO WELL THAT I WENT OUT TO BUY ANOTHER CROCK POT SO I CAN HAVE THIS FOR OUR FRIDAY EVENING MEAL AND OUR SABBATH AFTERNOON MEAL. I HAVE 5 CHILDREN AND A GREEDY HUSBAND, THEY ALL LOVED IT AND WANT MORE. THANKS SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!! ;-) - 01 Dec 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This was so easy to make and interesting since it cooked all night. The house was filled with an amazing aroma, and it was so worth the wait! Excellent taste and texture and my kids loved it to. Thanks! - 26 May 2000 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
