Savory flavors blend beautifully in this hearty recipe from field editor Ruth Ann Stelfox of Raymond, Alberta. “This stew can also be made in a slow cooker,“ she notes. “In a pinch, I use a ring of garlic bologna cut into chunks in place of the pork shoulder.“

"I really liked this dish. Who would of thought apple juice would be good in a soup. But it is."

"I made this for St. Patrick's Day, the whole family loved it. The ingredient amounts listed would never feed 6 adults. I used my 5 qt. crockpot and used 1 3/4 lbs. pork, plus more potatoes, carrots & cabbage. I did not increase the soup, apple juice or milk and there was plenty of sauce. We do not like caraway so I substituted a tsp. or so of thyme."

"My husband gave this 2 happy faces = 5*'s. Very easy and quick to put together in the crockpot. I thought it would be a very good dish for St. Patrick's Day instead of the traditional corned beef and cabbage."
