Cholent with Beef Brisket - meat

Posted by : Joan

This is a variation, worked out over many, many years of 
trial and error, of several recipes from The Art of Jewish
Cooking by Jennie Grossinger. In my opinion the only way 
to have the lima bean flavor permeate the other ingredients
(which is the way a cholent should taste) is to use the
slow-cook method. We have a cholent party every winter that
our non-Jewish friends look forward to.
