awesome, I can only try. you deliver or should i wake up my dad? he might not kill me if there’s enough for him too…January 27, 2009 4:51 am at 4:51 am #647019coke not pepsiMember
hey icot u just reminded me of country yossis cholent song —cholent cholent chachacha cha chalent…..January 27, 2009 5:07 am at 5:07 am #647020
“some like it hot, some like it cold
some like it in the pot, covered in mold” 🙂
When I have a pot that has burned or baked-on cholent, stew, or soup, I find that letting water sit in it overnight makes most of the stuff come right off with minimal fuss. Of course, scrape it out over the toilet, unless you have a garbage disposal in the sink.
Sorry, I’m not into cholent much. I’ll enjoy a good one, but it’s not one of my favorite foods.
coke not pepsi-
I haven’t heard that song in 20 – 25 years, and probably still know it by heart.
“cholent is the name, heartburn is its game, it looks so innocent it’s deadly just the same…”January 27, 2009 5:11 am at 5:11 am #647021
ugh that’s disgusting. anyway you can’t have it cold.January 27, 2009 5:15 am at 5:15 am #647022anonymisssParticipant
ames, ya gotta use a bag in the crock pot! Ugh, I can’t imagine cleaning the pot….

ames- trying letting it soak with baking soda and water overnight. It should come right off.
Moish- I have the remains of Vegatarian chulent from Shabbos if your interested in starting a new batch for your next concuction.
As far as men making chulent,( What is it with men, Chulent & Barbque??!!) My husband tells his famous chulent story in his Bachelor days. It involved everything!! Hot dogs, split peas, Ketchup, Potatoes,paprika,garlic. He said it was the best tasting chulent he ever had.
Chulent and Bar-B-Que = Man’s Claim to fame.January 27, 2009 6:05 am at 6:05 am #647025
mazal – any meat works. and no, i’m not tepted by vegetarian chulent – that defeats the whole purpose.January 27, 2009 7:14 am at 7:14 am #647026
ames; ha—tell me about this bag!!! please!!! what country do i need to smuggle it in from???? ok so here’s what i know, the bags have chemicals & are really dangerous!!!(i won’t bore you with personal story—i had a bad experience with the bag!!!! why don’t you just dump what’s left in the pot right away & store it in the dishwasher till motzei shobbos???? then right when shobbos is over ya put the soap in da dishwasher & magic-it gets cleaned!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!January 27, 2009 4:50 pm at 4:50 pm #647027squeakParticipant
ames, you should definitely use the bag. It ruins the flavor a little bit, but it’s better than not making cholent at all.
If you’re willing to clean out the pot right away, it would be easy. But days later? Yuck. I personally use a teflon crockpot (when I make it cholent, which is rare to never these days) and I pregrease the teflon coating with a thin layer of oil (wet a napkin with oil and wipe the surface with it). Nothing ever sticks.January 27, 2009 4:56 pm at 4:56 pm #647028flatbush27Member
where do you buy a teflon crock pot? i never heard of it beforeJanuary 27, 2009 5:11 pm at 5:11 pm #647029squeakParticipant
Try a Westbend.January 27, 2009 5:21 pm at 5:21 pm #647030flatbush27Member
ames. i asked that question before to my rav but only asked it regarding soaking the pot in water. He told me i could put it in my sink and whenever people wash their hands for whatever reason the water will fall into itJanuary 27, 2009 5:21 pm at 5:21 pm #647031YW Moderator-72Participant
For those without dishwashers:
I heard that if you burn the food in the pot, the easist way to clean it is to put in the powdered dish washer soap and soak the pot for a while in hot water. I have tried this and the burnt parts come out much easier than just using regular dish soap.January 27, 2009 10:45 pm at 10:45 pm #647032areivimzehlazehParticipant
you can get crockpot bags in your local grocery storeJanuary 28, 2009 8:11 pm at 8:11 pm #647033charlie brownMember
