How do you make your chulent? Last week was the first time I did it, wasn't so good... I first sauteed the onion and meat for a few minutes, then added chulent mix, great northern beans, and potatoes. A few hours later I added the barley. Didn't taste so good- what kind of meat to use? How do you keep warm on shabbos? (crock pot, hot plate, blech)

I add barley right after meat, then beans and sautee it all a little, add salt. Then add water and after it comes to boil, add potatoes. Also black pepper and bay leaf. I keep it on low for a few hours before shabos and then transfer onto the shabos hot plate. I make it more of a soup as well, don't like dry.
"Culent meat" or flank is the best, but apart from that, I use calf breast bone. It gives jelly like consistence to the thole thing.

I saute Onion and garlic, then add one bag great northern beans, meat ( whichever I have that week)
salt, white pepper, and honey.
I cook it for hours on low and it's heavenly.

I've tried making cholent for years and it never came out good untill I started using a can of baked beans - Now my cholent comes out greayt every time.

I brown the meat (flanken or spare ribs)
take the meat out of the pot.
sotee an onion
add a can of baked beans, quorter cup barly, quorter cup ref lentils, the meat and potatoes (I only put in one potatoe cause we don't really like it but you can put in as much as you like) add water to cover, salt, pepper and about a quorter cup ketchup.
cook for about an hour.
before shabbos I put in hot dogs and sometimes kishka and boil it. (I sometimes add some more water at this point)

from these amounts you get about five nice servings.

Birdy, did you put in salt and pepper? It's really needed unless you use a very salty piece of meat.

I take flanken meat and put in crockpot (one strip for us, I add a second if we have guests). Then I pour my beans on top about 1/2 cup worth and about 1/4 cup worth of barley. Then I sprinkle on salt, 2 cubes of frozen garlic, zigzag the pot with honey, and then I put A TON of paprika, probably close to a 1/4 cup. Then I cube a potato put on top. Pour in water (about 2-3 cups worth) enough to cover the potatoes.

then I plug it in on low and leave it be until lunch.
