This is a recipe I adapted (a little) from Martin Yan's Crunchy Apple Beef recipe. It is absolutely delicious!

Altogether this recipe was really underwhelming. It wasn't bad, but it turned out much more bland than I expected. Maybe if the whole thing had time to simmer together longer? I dunno, it was alright but we probably won't make it again.
