Cider Pork Stew

Mary Casey


I am a diabetic and finding a recipe that works to keep my blood sugars level is hard. This one is great! I changed some of the amounts of the ingredients to suit my flavor pallet and boy, did it ever hit the spot on a cold rainy night. I even made rye bread to go as a side for my husband. He even enjoyed this recipe!

Oh, this is also great for a Sunday dinner as you use your slow cooker and can bake the bread in a bread maker. (I did mine the old fashion way)
