The Keller crock-pot cholent recipe:
Put some oil on the bottom of the crock-pot to heat up.
When oil is hot, add a sliced onion and a minced clove of garlic.
Once these have been sauteed to a reasonable degree, add about 1/2 lb. of flank steak. Sprinkle with salt, black pepper, onion powder, garlic powder & paprika. Turn over, do same to other side. Brown the spiced meat.
When meat is brown, add 4 medium-size potatoes cut into bite-sized chunks, 1/3 cup of barley and some beans (some stores sell it as “cholent mix”, it’s mostly kidney beans and cranberry beans). Cover with water. Place into water a teaspoon of salt, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika and a dash of pepper.
Let simmer for a good long time.

“Sherlock Holmes once said that once you have eliminated the
impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be
the answer. I, however, do not like to eliminate the impossible.
The impossible often has a kind of integrity to it that the merely improbable lacks.”
