There is nothing quite like being able to come home to a warm, home cooked meal on a cold night, or if you ask your family, any night! The great thing about this recipe is the ability to create it how you like it. Experiment with your favorite vegetables and you can make it different every time! The apple cider adds a lot of flavor both to the ribs themselves and to the various vegetables. To add some color to the dish, throw in some green peas about five minutes before the dish is done. What are you waiting for? Pull out your apron and get cooking!
