Recipe by Acerast

Here is the third recipe that my friend Georgia shared in our local newspaper, The Journal Gazette. This combines beef with vegetables and apples to make a savory stew. It is wonderful! Don't be scared off by the long list of ingredients - I'll bet that you have most of them in your pantry or vegetable crisper.
