The pairing of sweet potatoes, carrots and apples go perfectly with the pork shoulder and make a nice counterpoint to the cider. It's also really fast and easy to get together.

Very nice! This is not a spicy stew so perfect for young children. Easy to put together. Served ours with Pumpkin Seed Bread and Garlic Herb Butter. Mine was done in 7 hours. Thank you TasteTester for posting. Made for Theirs, Yours, & Mine tag.

This was very easy to throw together in the crock pot. I put it on low and left for 8 eight hours, It made the whole house smell wonderful !! The Stew was great and had a wonderful taste, but the sweet potatoes cooked to much as you can see in the picture they cooked almost completely down to nothing.I think 6 1/2 hours would have done the job.Or if your at home just add later.<br/>Out of 7 people in the house all but one loved it. And she does not like a sweet flavor with meat. This has a very sweet broth to it. Served with salad and warm crusty bread this was a fabulous dinner in my book. I also doubled the broth, just my preference to have more broth to dip bread into.

Just wanted something different in the crockpot ! Did take more than 15 min to prepare, but flavors were all on the "go-together" list. 1 cup of liquid was not nearly enough -- added at least 1 more cup after 5 hours. Turned out a tad sweeter than our usual preference, but has potential for tweaking. Thanks for posting, Taste Tester.
