What is “cholent mix”? I see it listed in recipes for cholent, but can’t find a description of exactly what’s in it. If you don’t have “cholent mix”, how would you create an equivalent from basic ingredients?November 30, 2017 8:15 pm at 8:15 pm #1416510
The “chulent mix” that I buy is just a mix of beans. You can just use whatever beans you like, the proportions are not too important.November 30, 2017 9:11 pm at 9:11 pm #1416533
Cholent mix, as Meno described is just a mixture of beans so you don’t have to buy different bags of beans and make your own mixture (as was done years ago). Mostly kidney beans, navy beans and pinto beans.November 30, 2017 9:16 pm at 9:16 pm #1416540
Maybe it’s the Kedem Seven Bean Soup Mix?November 30, 2017 9:58 pm at 9:58 pm #1416546

I don’t mix my cholent.
I just put all the ingredients in the pot and let it do its thing.December 1, 2017 12:51 pm at 12:51 pm #1416887

I turn the fire on too. This way it cooks.December 2, 2017 8:49 pm at 8:49 pm #1417025
It also includes cranberry beans, but feel free to use whatever beans you like.December 2, 2017 10:12 pm at 10:12 pm #1417047
Post-shabbos report: my cholent came out perfect. 🙂
I used a mixture of navy, kidney, pinto and black beans, along with potatoes, barley, stew beef, onions, garlic, salt, black pepper, paprika and hot sauce (and water).December 2, 2017 11:20 pm at 11:20 pm #1417064
If you are concerned about nutrition and cardiac health, consider substituting a tofu product or soy-based beef in lieu of some or all of the red meat and go very light on the salt. It is very easy to make a healthy chulent that tastes better than any recipe from the alte heim but equally important, allows you to fulfill the mitzvah of “u’shamartem es nafshosechem”.December 2, 2017 11:21 pm at 11:21 pm #1417074

Gadholhadorah, eating tofu may be healthier and prolong your life, but if you spend that time eating tofu you’re just prolonging your misery.December 3, 2017 7:31 pm at 7:31 pm #1417482
If your Venus fly trap wants to eat it, then you’ve made cholent.
