LOVE to make this delicious beef stew on a cold winter's day! I increase the ingredients so we have leftovers the next night. Also, when adding the cider, I loosen the browned bits of beef on the bottom of the pot. As the liquid mixture boils, it enhances that flavor of beefy goodness to the stew!
I've made this recipe with apple juice and apple cider. Both are great, but the apple cider adds a little edge that makes it my favorite. I love to share this dish with friends.
This stew was really good. I used sparkling cider that I had leftover from the holidays, added a can of cream of mushroom with roasted garlic, and a half of green pepper. Also, I browned the meat according to the directions, but finished the rest in the slow cooker on low for 6hrs.From now on this is the only beef stew recipe I will use. Yum
I made this in a slow cooker. I cooked it on low for 6- hours. It was great!! I used the slow cooker liner, so no clean up. Now my neighbor wants the recipe.
