"This is a traditional Jewish food that is served for Sabbath lunch. Its origin is unknown, but it has been traced back to the early 1200's! You can leave it overnight- the longer it cooks for the better it tastes!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Tanya- you are right. I neglected to mention the most important part- to cover the ingredients with water! Thank you for pointing that out :)
This recipe looks intriguing and delicious. Question: There's no liquid mentionned other than the condiments/sauces. I can't believe that's enough liquid given the dry beans and barley which both soak up lots. Advice?
After researching this dish more, I see most people cover it with water, and that's what I ended up doing, even though it was a crockpot, and that worked.
This is the best chulent, since I found this recipe this is how I make it all the time. Chulent is a Jewish dish cooked usually for Sabbath and not a stew. The only changes that I did is that I cooked the onion in about 2-3 tbsp. of oil until is soft and translucent and added to the slow cooker and mixing with everything, I didn't use garlic and I used beef brisket and bone in, skinless chicken breast( my husband prefers the chicken). Also I covered with water and on top of everything I put some whole, in shell and uncooked eggs. When the chulent is ready you will remove their shells, they will have a dark colour and are very good. I forgot to mention that before I put the eggs in I washed them very well with dish soap. Thank you Niki11784 for a wonderful recipe.
the most amazing chulent ever! so easy, so tasty. absoultely delicous! 6 potatoes seems like alot but add it cause the potatoes come out incredible!
Did not care for this. I thought it had possibilities, but there are other stews that taste better.
We did not care for this recipe. My family is not picky...but everyone asked that I please never fix this again.
Wouldn't even try this when I saw all the processed junk in the recipe such as onion soup mix and bbq sauce. I doubt they had onion soup mix, bbq sauce, and ketchup in the 1200's. And while other populations would have had soy sauce, chances are that the the European Jewish population that would have eaten something like this also wouldn't have had soy sauce.
