      The stew was very nice. The dumplings were fine. I even substituted whole wheat flour. I've never had a problem with dumplings.... just make sure the "dough" is thick, and the stew is at a low boil. Cover, wait, and they'll turn out fine every time. Just let them float on the top, and don't stir them in. You can do that when they are done and you dish yourself a serving.

      This is a really good recipe. The only change I made is one I learned a long time ago from my grandmother: rather than simply adding the dumplings to the stew, first boil them in beef broth. Drop dumplings one by one into a bubbly boiling area of the broth. Make certain you drop them into a boil. Don't stir until set, then gently stir by moving them around with the back of a spoon. When they're cooked, turn off heat, cover, and allow to set for 10 minutes before adding to your stew. This will prevent them from disintegrating into little bits and pieces. This is an old Appalachian cooking trick for good dumplings, so give it a try.

      This stew tasted great but when I made it the dumplings didn't come out right--instead of being dumplings the bread/dough disintegrated into the stew.
