I competed in a cholent competition at my shul. There were 7 competitors and I won first place. Everyone loved it. It has tender, melt-in-your-mouth salami and cheek meat as well as chickpeas in place of beans. It’s a meal in a bowl and it’s so easy to make.


Main ingredients

  • 6 Yukon gold potatoes, peeled, left whole

  • 2 onions, peeled, diced

  • 1 cup barley

  • 1 can Goya chickpeas, drained and rinsed

  • 10 garlic cloves, peeled, minced

  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar

  • 1/2 tsp paprika

  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
