Is there anything better than coming home on a chilly day and cuddling up with a family movie night with some warm soup?
I love trying out new soups. To be honest, I usually go for a chicken noodle or gnocchi soup with a creamy base, BUT this Apple Cider Beef Stew is a NEW favorite for sure!
This soup is the perfect mix of hearty and sweet with a little tang. It’s a MUST try!
Check out the recipe below. To customize the recipe to your flavor preference, add more White House Foods Apple Cider for sweetness, Beef broth for heartiness, or White House Foods Apple Cider Vinegar for more of a tangy taste!
