      Very good and different. I cooked mine in a crockpot for about 3 hours on high and also added in some carrots. Thanks for the recipe!

      We have had so many really cool days making stew a good choice for the family supper. Used apple juice and loved the taste of the apples - which always go so well with pork. The dumplings were great - made for a real treat meal - we don't see to dumplings too often at our house ... and these were good. Thank you Paula I have added this in my file for Stews.

      YUM!!! I put this in a 300F oven for 1 hr 45 min while I took dd to her swim lesson. It worked! It didn't *need* that much time but it is still fabulous. The flavors scream FALL COMFORT FOOD.
