Cider Beef Stew Is a Warm Welcome Home Meal On A Cold Winter Day!

Apple Cider Beef Stew is just the meal to bring the family around the table after a cold hard day of work or play. It hot, it hardy and it's delicious! Because my kids are pretty little and do not eat a whole lot yet, I usually cut this recipe in half. The best part of the whole recipe is that it's a SLOW COOKER recipe! Throw it all in before you leave for the day and when you come home you have dinner ready! Man, I LOVE that!
