Beef Stew With Dumplings

Recommended Posts

Assalamu alaikum,


Made best in a slow cooker, it takes about 5-6hours to cook. you can cook on the stove top but the temperature needs to be about a quarter or less. All vegetables are approx you can have more or less depending on what you like, and you can add things like parsnip and turnips etc (well my sis does not me). And if you like spicy food add a little chilli.


Ingredients for stew:


500gm beef cubed (no bones more meat if you desire)

3 medium-large potatos cubed

2 carrots peeled and sliced

1 large onion diced into small pieces




1 packet of french onion soup

1 - 1 1/2 cups of water

Salt and pepper to taste




Seal meat in a fry pan (but don't cook through). Put all meat and vegetables in slow cooker. Add french onion soup mix and pour water over (water should not cover everything) give a good mix. Cook on high (slow cooker temp) for 2 hours then turn to low for 3 hours. Check taste and thinkness if it is to runny you can add a bit of cornflour to thicken up sauce (or if you can get beef packet gravey powder that works good to)


Dumplings ingredients:


1 cup of self-raising flower

salt and pepper

1 tablespoon of butter

approx 1/2 cup of milk




sift flower, salt and pepper into bowl. Rub in butter. Using a knife mix in milk slowly till it is glugy (can't explain that bit well) Spoon mixture in big dolops on top of stew, replace slow cooker lid and cook for approx another 1/2 hour when it looses the wet look it is cooked. (Also do not open lid whilst dumplings are cooking because they will not rise and be yucky)


Enjoy :D
