A slow cooker makes the pork and vegetables extra tender in this main dish stew recipe. Apples and apple cider tenderize and add sweetness.

Made the recipe as directed. It ended up turning out quite bland and overly sweet. This recipe needs cinnamon desperately, along with maybe some bacon and other savory/smoky influences. Or at the very least, 1/2 and 1/2 apple juice to broth for the liquid portion. Personally, I'd omit the apple pieces as well, as their texture wasn't great in the final product
