This is much better if you leave out onions, peel the apples and double the dumpling recipe. Also better with Apple Juice rather than Cider. I rate this five stars after making the above changes.
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. I added 2 chopped onions when i browned the pork & added the scallions just before dropping ion the dumpling mix. Deeeelishhhhussss!!!
What a great family meal. It was quite cold here last night and we really enjoyed this warming meal especially my 2yo which is a big plus for me. It's quite a sweet dish and this is why I think it would be ideal for kids. I made exactally as written and used apple cider. Will be making again without the dumplings to freeze. Thanks for posting.
