This was a big hit with my family. I did not and would not change anything about the recipe. The stew had a robust flavor, chunky consistancy and those soft dumplings make it very filling. This was a great hearty meal and perfect for all this cold weather we have been having. Thanks for the recipe.

My Dh just loved this. I didn't make the dumplings in fact I was concentrating on the herb mixture which was a big hit. I made a few changes with the veggies but nothing substantial. We will be making this again. I did need to cook the potatoes longer as they just were not done in the time stated.
