Cholent is a delicious slow-cooked beef and bean stew. Kishke, or kishka, is a sausage of matzo meal, schmaltz and vegetables that is cooked in the stew. Cholent is a traditional Ashkenazi Jewish dish, and it evolved because cooking and lighting fires is not allowed from sunset on the day before the Shabbat until sunset on the Shabbat. So Ashkenazi Jews would prepare the cholent and cook it overnight in a very low oven. After morning worship on the Shabbat, the cholent would be ready to eat. Cholent is a perfect dish to make in a slow cooker or crockpot.
