I finally got a crock pot so I decided to try a recipe for Chulnt. It's a hearty mix of Beef, Beans, and Barley. Great on a cold rainy night with fresh baked bread.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Clean and place great northern bean in water to soak for approximately 2 hours.
  2. About 30 minutes before soaking time is complete, sprinkle salt and pepper on beef.
  3. In a skillet, brown the beef on all sides.
  4. Place great northern bean on bottom of 4-6 quart crock pot.
  5. Place browned meat over the beans.
  6. Dissolve the bouillon cubes and soup mix in the 3 cups hot water.
  7. Pour the broth and grape juice over the beans and beef.
  8. Add as much hot or boiling water as needed to completely cover both beans and beef.
  9. Add 1-2 cups more hot water.
  10. Let cook on low for 5-6 hours until beans are tender.
  11. Mix in tomato paste, drained garbanzo beans and barley.
  12. Cook for 2-3 more hours until barley is tender.
  13. You may need to add more water if barley isn't tender and cook for 30 more minutes.
  14. Enjoy!

Anytime I have had or made Chulnt, It was never red or tasted like tomatoe sauce. This recipe has way to much tomatoe paste. It is not a traditional or what I would call Chulnt.
