It's especially nice to use this recipe in fall, when the weather gets crisp and Nebraska's apple orchards start selling fresh apple cider. This entree's subtle sweetness is a welcome change from other savory stews. We enjoy it with biscuits and slices of apple and cheddar cheese. -Joyce Glaesemann, Lincoln, Nebraska

I love this stew - its the only one I make actually. I do double the cider and add a couple of cups of water. Sometimes I substitute sweet potato for the potato.
