Cheek meat ;). Some stores don't carry it and many only have it in the freezer. Ask the butcher.
+1 Cheek meat is really amazing in chulent. I too have had a hard time finding it. Many stores don't carry it. I was in one supermarket today and the butcher told me that they used to have it but people weren't buying it so they stopped ordering it.

What is cheek meat labeled as? I've never seen cheek meat in a Grocery Store.
I take it you don't live in Brooklyn? Most stores carry it here.

Bones. Gotta have bones.
I remember when a coke was a nickel, and you could buy VRs in OD.

  do you mean marich bones? Ime they made the chulent very fatty. Which isn't a bad thing but out of health concerns I stopped putting them in on weekly basis and only use them once in awhile.

if not cheek meat, you can cut up 2nd cut brisket (look for a nice marbleized one) very good
btw you are probably buying not great flanken, because a good piece shouldn't dry out

Yes, I searched before starting a new thread and pretty much the only thing that came up was a lot of posts from cholentfresser! Not exactly what I was looking for..... Was just curious if anyone had some suggestions, my cholent could use some help, it taste ok but i don't like how it comes out, it comes out each thing by itself and doesn't come together like a cholent, each ingredient; beans, barley, meat, potatoes don't seem to mish together, am I doing something wrong?
You probably are cooking it on the wrong setting.
I was recently called upon to troubleshoot a serious sholombayis/low quality cholent issue.
Turned out she was leaving the crock pot on 'warm' instead of 'low'... We made the adjustment for them, and things have been fantastic since!
