Not sure, since I'm not Jewish, but Vickilynn & Marnie are and both are "COOKS", of the yummy recipe and willing to share variety, bet either one of them will be able to help you! By the way, Welcome to Worthy! :thumbsup:

Shalom Ger,

I believe Marnie is the Cholent expert, but here are a few recipes I've garnered:

Submitted by: Sherrie D.

Rated: 5 out of 5 by 6 members Prep Time: 40 Minutes

Cook Time: 10 Hours Ready In: 10 Hours 40 Minutes

Yields: 16 servings

"Chuck roast with kidney beans, barley, and potatoes makes a very filling beef stew. It cooks at 200 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 to 15 hours."

INGREDIENTS:

6 onions, quartered

1/2 cup vegetable oil

8 pounds chuck roast, cut into large chunks

2 cups dry kidney beans

2 cups dried pinto beans

2 cups pearl barley

10 large potatoes, peeled and cut into thirds

boiling water to cover

4 (1 ounce) packages dry onion and mushroom soup mix

1/4 cup garlic powder

salt and pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS:

1. In a large oven safe pot or roasting pan, saute onions in oil over medium heat.

2. Add meat, and brown well on all sides.

3. Mix in beans; stir continuously until the beans start to shrivel. Stir in the barley. Add potatoes, and add just enough boiling water to cover the meat and potatoes. Mix in dry soup mix and garlic. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, lower heat, and simmer partially covered for 20 minutes on stove top.

4. Preheat oven to 200 degrees F (95 degrees C).

5. Cover pot tightly, and place in preheated oven. Allow to cook overnight for at least 10 to 15 hours. Check periodically to make sure you have enough liquid to cover; add small amounts of water if needed. Do not stir; stirring will break up the chunks of potatoes.

I am NO expert. I just love to cook and hang out in my kitchen. I yield to my friend Vickilynn on this! Here are a couple she may not have.

Dafina

Ingredients:

* 8 oz. (about 1-1/4 cups) dried chickpeas

* 3 Tablespoons vegetable oil

* 2 medium yellow onions, chopped (about 1 cup)

* 4 whole cloves garlic

* 1 pound beef or veal marrow bones

* 3 pounds beef brisket, short ribs, or chuck roast, cut into 4 pieces

* 12 to 16 medium potatoes (4 to 5 pounds), peeled, *or* 1/2 cup bulgur

* 5 to 6 pitted dates *or* 3 Tablespoons honey

* 1 Tablespoon paprika

* 1 teaspoon ground cumin

* 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

* 1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric *or* 6 saffron threads, crumbled

* About 2 teaspoons salt

* Ground black pepper to taste

* 1 recipe kouclas (dumpling, 2 options below)

* 6 to 8 large eggs, in shell

Preparation:

1. Soak the chickpeas in water overnight then drain.

2. Heat the oil in a 6- to 8-quart pot over medium eat. Add the onions and saute' until soft and translucent, 5 to 10 minutes.

3. Add, without mixing, the chickpeas, garlic, bones, meat, potatoes or bulgur, dates or honey, paprika, cumin, cinnamon, turmeric or saffron, salt, and pepper. Place the kouclas in the center of the dafina and arrange the eggs around it. Add enough water to cover.

4. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce the heat to medium-low, and simmer, occasionally skimming the foam, for 1 hour.

5. Tightly cover the pot, place on a blech (a thin sheet of metal placed over the stove top) over low heat or in a 225-degree oven, and cook overnight. Or transfer to a slow crock-type cooker set on low to cook overnight.

6. Dafina is traditionally separated into different dishes before serving: the chickpeas and cooking liquid in one bowl, the eggs in a second, the potatoes in a third, the meat in a fourth, and the dumpling in a fifth.

Kouclas bi Khobz (Moroccan Bread Dumpling)

Ingredients:

* 1 cup bread crumbs

* 1 large yellow onion, chopped (about 3/4 cup)

* 3 large eggs

* 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

* 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour

* Salt to taste

Preparation:

Combine all the ingredients.

Wrap loosely in a piece of cheesecloth or aluminum foil and tie securely.

* 1 pound beef or veal marrow bones

Marnie, this looks SO yum!

One note: It is highly questionable whether veal can be considered kosher, as it violates the no cruelty to animals thing. I leave it up to the conscience of the individual.

:emot-questioned:

As I said, I'm not real strict. For the record, I use the beef. We're not big on veal. At the moment I am cooking mostly for my Dad and his hands, about half a dozen guys. Poor Mike, I know he can't wait till it's just the two of us again. Although, his waistline doesn't appear to be suffering.
