Chokin’ Down Cholent

The stew that rhymes with Jew

Print Email

Because of course Yeshiva University held a Cholent Cook-Off. The Shabbat stew—commonly containing such staples as beef, potatoes, beans, and more potatoes—is delicious, nutritious, and (with apologies to the same-named blog) Jewlicious. After a three-way tie, the school’s president awarded first place to Team Heerlijk (the word is Flemish for “delicious,” but surely you already knew that). Attendees leaving the competition last Thursday were left to ponder the question: Is cholent not eaten on a Saturday really cholent? Who says they don’t discuss serious things in school anymore!

Looks like rust. Tastes like crap. Hate it, hate it, hate it.

Heaven on Earth. My entry would have been from Jeffrey Nathan’s “Adventures in Jewish Cooking.” His recipe “Superb Sabbath Cholent” is wonderful.

Robb says:

So, where’s the recipe?

Mike Shapiro says:

One wonders what would have happened if there had been an entry from the restaurant in Hungary that serves Cholent, but does not realize that it is Kosher and uses pork as an ingredient.
