It's stew weather, friends.
That's right—with a super-mild fall (hell, we were surfing and suntanning through all those 62-degree days, weren't you?) coming to an end, it's time to gear up for some serious complaining about the temperature in your apartment and the incoming onslaught of snow and slush (if you're in Hawaii, California, or Florida, please refrain from smirking at this).
In the new episode of Matty Matheson's series Dead Set on Life—watch on VICELAND, if you haven't set your DVR yet—Matty enjoys cholent, a traditional Jewish stew of meat, beans, potatoes, and more. This is the perfect cold-weather dish, no matter whether you're fluent in Yiddish or hopelessly godless.
Throw the ingredients in your slow cooker, set it, forget it, and prepare to get cozy.
