Just because you all asked for it .
Here's how to do Chulent in the oven, and what I generally put in my Chulent.
In a deep 9x13 pan add a bit of oil, and sauté your diced onion. Yes, you can sauté right in the pan, just be careful not to do it on a high flame, as it can burn fast.
Once you sautéed your onions you can brown your meat (optional). Then add in the beans and the rest as you usually do.
Once done adding all ingredients and flavors, mix well. If using Barley, add in here, on top after all is mixed. Add chicken soup/water to cover, plus a bit more. Cover pan tightly. Place in pre-heated oven on 450.
Bake an hour on 450, then lower to 350 and bake for an additional 2-3 hours. (Periodically, I check if there is enough water here , I make sure there is more than covering, so it doesn't dry out)
When re-heating add extra water on top so it doesn't dry out.
What I put in my cholent:
Meat, usually Cholent meat, which is made from Second cut.
Great Northern Beans
Chicken soup, or water
Onion soup mix
