Chulent used to be an exclusive food for shabbos. Now, people eat chulent all the time. Any time. Day or night.
Yeshivos serve chulent many times a week. lunch, dinner, onegs, melava malka’s, snacks. You name it…
What do you think…?May 20, 2009 3:28 am at 3:28 am #648091
i could eat cholent everyday! i can’t get enough of it!May 20, 2009 3:29 am at 3:29 am #648092
nothing wrong with it, but isnt there supposed to be a food special for shabbos?May 20, 2009 3:35 am at 3:35 am #648093
When I saw this thread I got so excited. My favorite food is chulent it is really really good! I could eat it everyday. The school where I teach (a boys school) gives chulent out as a prize to the kids and they love it.
-Kapusta the way chulent came into being is that the Tzidokim believed in only Torah shbichsav and they held that you can’t have a fire burning on Shabbos so the Chachamim said that we should eat something hot on Shabbos so that we show we are not like them. In poland and Russia they had a lot of potatoes and…….thats where chulent came from!
People think it’s strange that I am a girl and I love chulent but I don’t see that as a contridictionMay 20, 2009 3:37 am at 3:37 am #648094qawsMember
What’s with these mods? 42 can’t get enough kugel and 55 can’t get enough chulent! and 72(me)can’t get enough coffee
Do the mods get food at home?May 20, 2009 3:38 am at 3:38 am #648095
postsem, yes, I’m not saying because of that, just any food thats especially for shabbos.May 20, 2009 3:41 am at 3:41 am #648096
which mod cant get enough kapusta? trust me when I say that we all have more than enough kapustaMay 20, 2009 3:43 am at 3:43 am #648097
qaws: the bosses always shnore food! 😉May 20, 2009 3:43 am at 3:43 am #648098
kapusta-I didn’t think that there is food that you can only eat on Shabbos. In my house we eat leftovers and that is food from Shabbos. I don’t know about you.May 20, 2009 3:44 am at 3:44 am #648099AnonymousInactive
Qaws- The candy machines at YW headquarters have been broken for a while so we are stuck with chulent, kugel (and coffee). :}May 20, 2009 3:47 am at 3:47 am #648100
postsemgirl: my sisters love chulent too, they can’t get enough of the way i make it!May 20, 2009 3:47 am at 3:47 am #648101
uh oh, am I on a mods bad side? (sniffle, sniffle)
postsem, I’m not saying that, I mean shabbos is supposed to be special, like special food you wouldnt have during the week. Cake, better wine, etc
55, try some lasagna.May 20, 2009 3:51 am at 3:51 am #648102
postsemgirl: my sisters love chulent too, they can’t get enough of the way i make it!
ahhem… I think we have some self ego-boosting going on here.May 20, 2009 3:51 am at 3:51 am #648103
Oh, there’s a chuent thread too! Haha.
What day is it today?May 20, 2009 4:04 am at 4:04 am #648104
ames: nope, not one bit!May 20, 2009 4:06 am at 4:06 am #648105YW Moderator-72Participant
ok, this week I will do something diff, instead of putting my kugel in my chicken soup, I will have my kugel on a plate and I will pour a few spoonfuls of soup on top of it and have a carrot and celery from the soup on the side…May 20, 2009 4:06 am at 4:06 am #648106
ames- If it’s good why change?
kapusta- yea I get it
jax- you’re total right. Guys make a better chulent! And don’t worry about your ego! My husband better know how to make chulent!May 20, 2009 4:07 am at 4:07 am #648107
mod 72- lol!May 20, 2009 4:08 am at 4:08 am #648108May 20, 2009 4:09 am at 4:09 am #648109
72: have you ever tried putting potatoes in the chicken soup while it cooks the soup?! while adding all the soup condiments, add a like 2-3 whole potatoes! it tastes delicious! & can also be served as a side dish too!May 20, 2009 4:12 am at 4:12 am #648110
Jewess: everyday is chulent day!May 20, 2009 4:21 am at 4:21 am #648111
Ames, do you eat mazza every week?
Jax, yeah right.May 20, 2009 4:30 am at 4:30 am #648112
Ames, so that’s something we could eat every week and not get bored of. 🙂May 20, 2009 4:31 am at 4:31 am #648113
Ames, kugel is a staple, you have variety with meat, chicken and whatever, but not potato kugel.May 20, 2009 4:35 am at 4:35 am #648114
It’s so funny to me. I never ate potato kugel growing up and I still never really had a good piece (I guess, Jax), but my siblings who also never ate potato kugel love it. I guess I’m kugel deprived.May 20, 2009 4:37 am at 4:37 am #648115May 20, 2009 4:38 am at 4:38 am #648116
This is so confusing. I posted a kugel comment in the cholent thread.
By the way, is it CHOLENT or CHULENT?May 20, 2009 4:39 am at 4:39 am #648117
Ames, I know I take breaks from it, but technically I could eat it every week.May 20, 2009 4:39 am at 4:39 am #648118
jewess- oy! deprived child!May 20, 2009 4:40 am at 4:40 am #648119AnonymousInactive
What interesting things have you found in different chulents that you’ve had?May 20, 2009 4:41 am at 4:41 am #648120

jewess- chulentMay 20, 2009 4:42 am at 4:42 am #648122
I had cholent on Pesach once with matzah cooked in it. It was mushy and gross.May 20, 2009 4:42 am at 4:42 am #648123
55, are you looking for a good recipe?
broccoli, wasnt even bad. anyone ever try it with kapusta?May 20, 2009 4:43 am at 4:43 am #648124
jax- I want to taste your chulent.May 20, 2009 4:48 am at 4:48 am #648125
jewess, it’s CHULENT!
and there’s no such thing as sick of chulent. it just doesn’t happen.
and i’m laughing at how we finished a whole page already.May 20, 2009 4:50 am at 4:50 am #648126
I know that wasn’t 72 because he already turned down my invite,
55, you too are invited to the kapustas for shabbos. bring some cole slaw with you.May 20, 2009 4:51 am at 4:51 am #648127
I think that it’s really funny that so many people (including me) like chulent very very much!May 20, 2009 4:51 am at 4:51 am #648128

kspusta- I don’t like bagel and lox
ames- I don’t think so. Chulent is just really really goodMay 20, 2009 10:05 am at 10:05 am #648134amichaiParticipant
chulent is not really chulent during the week. it’s called stew. and the taste is not the same taste because of shabbos. but go ahead and enjoy it anyway.May 20, 2009 1:37 pm at 1:37 pm #648135noitallmrParticipant
Ha Ha- you people made my day- starting a thread on Chulent (cholent doesn’t quite have the same ring to it!!!)
Yes- by far and away my favorite food ( although I wouldn’t say no to a jumbo steak!!! Mmmmmmmmmm)
postsemgirl- chill it is totally normal for a girl to love chulent in fact my wife sisters and mother love it so….(yeah suppose my wife liking it doesn’t make it normal!!!- JK)May 20, 2009 1:38 pm at 1:38 pm #648136
