Cholent Min-haShamayim

Josh received cholent from Heaven and transmitted it to Charlie; Charlie to Daniel; and Daniel handed it down to David. David said three things: be careful with peelers and sharp objects, transmit the recipe to many people, and make sure to start the cholent well before shabbat.*

2 fleshig kishkes
1 lb stew meat, rinsed
2 onions, chopped
2 medium potatoes, peeled, chopped
1/2 bag cholent mix beans or baby lima beans
1/2 bag barley
chili powder
handful of kosher salt, dissolved in a bowl of water

Put the ingredients in this order:

1 onion
1 kishke
chopped stew meat
chili powder
1 onion
salt water (cover everything with water)
1 kishke

Put it on about 11AM-1PM or so for it to be ready at lunchtime. Serves most of a minyan.

* If this paragraph doesn’t make much sense, try reading Pirkei Avot 1:1.
