Fall Time Apple Roast Stew

applciderstew
2-3 lb Large Cut Roast (I used Bone In Pork)
1/4tsp Sea Salt (Optional Step. See Options)
1/4tsp Ground Pepper (Optional Step. See Options)
1T Flour (Optional Step. See Options)
1.5T Butter (Optional Step. See Options)

1c Apple Cider (I used Essential Value)
1 + 1/2 Beef Broth Cubes
1 + 1/2c Water
1 Brown Gravy PACKET
1 Onion Soup PACKET
2tsp Worcestershire
1T Fresh Garlic, minced
2tsp Dried Parsley
1/2tsp Allspice (Cinnamon may work)
2c: Carrots, Potatoes, Onions
1c: Celery, Mushrooms (1-2c), Frozen Peas (Add Peas Last Hour)

Directions:
Cube Meat (Keep Bones, if any.). Mix Flour, Salt, Pepper, and Meat. Add Butter or Oil to Pan. LIGHTLY Brown the meat. Add Meat to Crock. Add rest of ingredients to Crock. Cook on High 1 Hour, then Low for 4-6 Hours.

OPTIONS (READ!!!):
MEAT OPTION: You can SKIP Flour/Salt/Peppering/Browning the Meat. Just BUTTER Crock and add all to Crock, don’t cut up. Also, if you DO cut up, if your large cut contains Bone… ADD IT, for additional Awesome Flavoring!
Instead of Cinnamon or All Spice, Try Jamaican Seasoning to give this a Twist. If using Jamaican, try substituting Potatoes for Sweet Potatoes!
VEGI Options are Optional.
– I used 2c Water+2Cubes and 1+1/2c Apple Cider. Family loved it, but, I thought it could be tastier with a little less fluids. So, this recipe, I scaled back. Other option was to just add 1 more Broth Cube.
