    petlover's Note:

    I grew up with cholent that my mother and grandmother cooked all day and night...this is my version that is a lot quicker and a little different. Cholent is a traditional Eastern European Jewish dish which cooked for 24 hours. My family used kosher meat of course-this dish tastes better with kosher beef--i am not sure why. I like to serve this over noodles. You can substitute Flanken for chuck

      Oh, this was excellent! I have already passed the recipe on to 2 people. I did make 1 change though; I used 2 cups of water and 1 cup of red wine. Delicious, thanks Petlover.
