I am always looking for new slow cooker recipes so when I found this I thought I would give it a try. I was unfamiliar with cholent, which I have now concluded is a kind of versatile beef stew. Had I known this I probably would not have made it because my family are not big beef stew lovers. If yours is, however, it is definitely worth trying. It was the best beef stew I have tried. I did think it had a sourness to it that I didn't care for so I added a tbsp of brown sugar and 2 more tbsp of bbq (sweet) sauce. If I made it again I would use a 32oz. can (double the recipe) of brown sugar baked beans, no additional brown sugar, and 3tbsp of a sweet bbq sauce. I also added a bag of frozen corn which was a great addition. I browned the stew meat with the onions, garlic, salt and pepper. Then I added the remaining ingredients (I did omit the barley after reading another review), covered with water and cooked it on low for about 9 hours in my crockpot. I turned it up to high and removed the lid for an additional hour just to let it thicken up. Everything was tender and flavorful.
