What do you do with all that leftover chulent? Do you eat it after shabbos or is it past its prime and just thrown away? Such a shame, though to throw it away… Has anyone warmed it up on a Sunday or Monday and eaten it? Did it taste as good as fresh? Any major problems to speak of, such as not feeling well after?December 19, 2010 2:36 pm at 2:36 pm #915883TheGoqParticipant
Sunday night cholent leftovers were a staple when i grew up not quite as good as fresh but still very tastyDecember 19, 2010 2:37 pm at 2:37 pm #915884PosterMember
We eat it for supper on Sunday. With colse slaw, cold cuts, potaot kugel.December 19, 2010 2:41 pm at 2:41 pm #915885FunnyBunnyMember
I generally throw my cholent out. (This Shabbos there were no leftovers! It was a good cholent!) However, my mother warms up the cholent on the stove top on Sunday night and it tastes fine. She usually adds a bit of the chicken soup when warming it up and it gives it a delicious flavor. I can’t say it tastes as good as fresh (nothing tastes like Cholent ON Shabbos!) but it still tastes good.December 19, 2010 2:55 pm at 2:55 pm #915886mamashtakahMember
I eat it on Sunday, and sometimes I don’t even bother to heat it up first. Tastes good to me either way.December 19, 2010 2:58 pm at 2:58 pm #915887BP ZaidehMember
We are the BP grandparents of an out of town 19 year old who goes to school here in BP. The highlights of Sun & Mon night supper & midnight snack is Bubeh’s ChulentDecember 19, 2010 3:03 pm at 3:03 pm #915888tzippiMember
You can add some extra potatoes.
It won’t taste the same.
No one ever died from cholent leftovers (if anyone knows someone who knows someone who did, this is extremely uncommon).
Brace yourself though; some people will attack your culinary skills if you could even have leftover chulent. What perakim would you like me to say for you?December 19, 2010 3:46 pm at 3:46 pm #915889amichaiParticipant
edible the whole week. if you do not eat leftovers, cut down on amount so as not to waste.December 19, 2010 3:51 pm at 3:51 pm #915890real-briskerMember
Cholent is very tasty warmed up. There is nothing wrong with it. I don’t understand why your question is specificly based on cholent rather than any other left over food.December 19, 2010 4:27 pm at 4:27 pm #915891smartcookieMember
Of course rewarmed Chulent is delicious.
Nothing like fresh Chulent but we always eat it on Sunday with some crispy sour pickles!December 19, 2010 5:06 pm at 5:06 pm #915892krula rebbeMember
Sunday chulent is the best.December 19, 2010 5:48 pm at 5:48 pm #915893
Thanks everyone! Can you guess what I I’ll be having for supper tonight?! I’m not usually a “leftovers” fan in general, but feel bad to waste this stuff every week.
Real Brisker-my question regarding chulent as opposed to any other food is that the chulent is cooking from Friday and all day Shabbos, and I don’t cook like that usually. So I was asking if the long cooking sort of kills the shelf life of the cooked chulent, and limits the window of opportunity, so to speak, of when it’s ok to eat it till. That’s all I meant. I just wanted to know if anyone ever did such a thing…December 19, 2010 6:44 pm at 6:44 pm #915894ImaofthreeParticipant
My family won’t eat left over choulent. I feel bad throwing it out so I give it to my cleaning lady for lunch on Mondays, she loves it!December 19, 2010 6:47 pm at 6:47 pm #915895PosterMember
smartcookie, exactly! You know the cholent is a little thicker when it is rewarmed. I am happy that my family isn’t picky. Sunday I am busy cleaning up from Shabbos. I am satisfied not to cook dinner.December 19, 2010 7:08 pm at 7:08 pm #915896haifagirlParticipant
I will frequently make enough so I can eat it all week long.December 19, 2010 7:48 pm at 7:48 pm #915897REALISTMember
Q. What’s the difference between a bochur and a yingerman?
A. A bochur eats chulent Thursday, Friday, and Shabbos.
A yingerman eats it on Shabbos, Sunday, and Monday!December 19, 2010 8:18 pm at 8:18 pm #915898whatrutalkingabtMember
When I was a kid I hated leftover cholent. Now I happily serve it for supper on Monday nights and my husband loves it. I’m still not such a big fan. But I am a fan of getting a night off from making supper so it’s worth it. ; )December 19, 2010 8:31 pm at 8:31 pm #915899rockymountainsMember

Whats the difference bet between a Yeshiva Bochur and a Kollel Guy ? Yeshiva Bochur eats chulent Thursday night, Friday night, Shabbos day, and Sunday night. Kollel Guy eats chulent Shabbos day, Sunday night, Monday night, Tuesday night, and Wednesday night 🙂December 21, 2010 4:53 am at 4:53 am #915907deiyezoogerMember

Imaofthree; “I don’t throw it out. I give it to my cleaning lady for lunch. She loves it”. That’s what she tells YOU. I read somewhere that the fine, Yidd’n-loving (Polish) cleaning ladies write home how the Jews mistreat them that they give them all the leftovers for lunch. Speaking of (Polish) cleaning ladies. (Why are they called that?! Because they clean you out.) I think they have a special “Mitzvah”. To break things in the houses of the Jews, and other little sabotage. Lest you think I’m paranoid. I’m not the only one. I had the occasion of being in someone’s house who told me the same thing.December 27, 2012 12:24 am at 12:24 am #915913N.GMember
I like the cholent left over better than the fresh cholent.December 27, 2012 1:14 am at 1:14 am #915914rebdonielMember
Any sort of stew tastes better the longer it sits because the flavors get to marry and mingle more thoroughly over time.
I happen to like leftover chulent. Who wants to cook again Sunday when you don’t have to? I do usually eat it for melaveh malkah, though, when it is parve chulent (parve chulent with a dairy lukshen kugel and parve kishka is a very tasty combination). When we have fleshig chulent, we usually have the leftovers on Sunday and usually have to thin it out with a little beef broth or homemade chicken broth from Friday night soup.December 27, 2012 3:10 am at 3:10 am #915915oomisParticipant
Leftover cholent is great for Sunday night. Just moisten it a little.December 27, 2012 7:38 pm at 7:38 pm #915916Mayan_DvashParticipant
Today is Thursday and I just finished off last weeks chulent. I realize that tonight, many guys will be eating fresh chulent made for this week — I used to.

my mother dilutes the chulent until it’s soup and adds mushrooms- and poof a mushroom barely soup! As kids it took us a long time to realize . . . .December 28, 2012 1:19 am at 1:19 am #915918smartstarMember

This past week I added some more legumes, chile powder, and cumin and we tacos. The next night, with one bowl of chile left, we made chile dogs.July 11, 2017 11:46 pm at 11:46 pm #1315609LightbriteParticipant
Wow – So leftover chulent is a topic in itself?! I had no clue!
Thanks Meno 🙂
I imagine it being the consistency of leftover chili, which I thought was actually super yummy growing up. Often I’d snack on it cold.
Someone on another forum mentioned eating it with chips. That sounds good too. Or making a wrap, like a burrito (adding lettuce and etc toppings that one likes). Oh, plus someone mentioned making a pie out of it, so smart!
Of course… I’ve never had it, so I’m consuming leftover chulent recipes in theory.
