In order to make the “ultimate” Pesach cholent, I tried numerous versions over weeks and weeks, but wasn’t so happy with the results. I mentioned my struggles to my friend Miriam, and she told me that her father, Harry Pascal, makes the most amazing Pesach cholent. His secret? He cuts potatoes into little pieces to give the cholent that bean-like texture. I tried that, and finally did have the ultimate Pesach cholent. Don’t skip the kishka in this recipe, because it really takes the cholent to the next level.
