Easy Crock Pot Apple Cider Beef Stew

1 1/2 to 2 pounds lean stew beef
2 slices of bacon
8 carrots, sliced thin
6 medium potatoes, sliced thin

bacon fat and saute the beef and chopped onion in this fat.  Pat the
beef dry and add to crock pot with remaining vegetables and apple
cider.  Stir to mix, cover and cook on low for 8 hours.  Thicken
