Slow Cooker Beef Stew with Apple Dumplings

Slow Cooker Beef Stew with Herby Dumplings: This hearty stew topped with herby dumplings is THE ultimate comfort food. This simple slow cooker beef casserole requires no browning; let the slow cooker do the work. Serve with my Roasted Potatoes with Goose Fat.
