"Inspired by my mother-in-law, this is a warm, sweet, fall favorite! I make this for my husband and I, so half saved for another meal. We've found that it tastes even better the second day!" — Joy

beef stew meat, cut into bite-size pieces
ground black pepper
2 1/2 cups
Fuji apples - peeled, cored, and chopped
This was wonderful and unique, perfect for fall season. I did feel that the cider made it overly sweet, so i added savory flavors such a bay leave, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, a dash of worcester sauce, and basil. Also, if i did it again, i would use beef stock as the addition at the end instead of water. Sweet potatoes were also a wonderful addition to the flavor mix. Will definitely be cooking every year for the fall!
It was different. We didn't know what to think of the mild sweetness to it
This was a big hit, and the best thing is that it got better with age. If we had self-control we should've let it sit a day. Oh well. Leftover were awesome. I fudged and used more potatoes than I should have, and added some mushrooms. The way I thought of this recipe was that it was pot roast, plus cider minus the crockpot. And more potatoes for me is always a good thing. But that meant I had to add more liquid -- a bit more cider and a bit more water. I really wasn't sure about the apples in the stew itself, but it turned out perfect. I think some of the amounts seemed small, like the amount of flour needed to coat the meat, or the black pepper. I'm a fresh black pepper fiend, so I made sure to add lots more pepper. Mmm. Tasty. Good counterpoint to the sweet.
This was the best stew that I've ever eaten. I did make a few changes but nothing major. First of all, I tossed the beef with flour and spices and then put in the slow cooker. I did not wait until beef was cooked before adding the juice mix to the beef. I added Worcestershire sauce, savory, more thyme, dried basil and 2 beef bouillon cubes to the cider before putting the juice in my crock pot. I let the broth and beef cook for 1 hour before adding my veggies. I used baby potatoes, sweet potato, brussel sprouts in addition to the ingredients in the recipe. I let this cook on high for another 3 hours and it came out AMAZING. I will be making this often. Thank you for the recipe.
this is a tasty treat, to warm up, after being in the cold. it has a very distinct taste. i love it.
melts in your mouth and very tasty
I loved this stew. It was easy to make and it stored really well, I've been able to take it with me to work and it still tastes great!
Made this today for tomorrow. smelled wonderful and tastes even better! I think pork would work just as well, or maybe even better-pork and apples are a great combo! will definitely make again!
