Cholent

Ah, cholent. Simple ingredients – meat, potatoes, beans and barley – but yet there may be no traditional Ashkenazic food that is more of an acquired taste. If you've never made cholent before, or haven't yet found that perfect go-to preparation, try out this basic recipe from the Heimishe Cookbook. Please note: this cholent is prepared on the stove before Shabbat, not overnight in a slow cooker as many have become accustomed to doing.
