Directions

  1. In a 1-gallon plastic bag combine the 3 Tbsps flour, 1 tsp salt, thyme and black pepper; mix well.
  2. Add pork cubes, close bag and shake to evenly coat meat.
  3. Place the coated pork on waxed paper; reserving remaining flour mixture.
  4. In heavy 4-quart saucepan, heat the oil over medium-high heat until hot.
  5. Add the coated pork cubes; cook 3 to 5 minutes or until evenly browned, stirring occasionally.
  6. Add remaining stew ingredients except for the 2 Tbsp water.
  7. Bring to a boil; reduce heat; cover and simmer 45 to 60 minutes or until pork is tender, stirring occasionally.
  8. Combine 2 Tbsp water and reserved flour mixture in a small bowl.
  9. Blend until smooth and add to stew; cook and stir 2 to 4 minutes or until stew thickens.
  10. Lightly spoon the flour into measuring cup level off.
  11. In a medium bowl, combine the 1 cup flour, baking powder and 1/4 tsp salt mixing well.
  12. Add buttermilk, cheese and parsley; stir just until dry ingredients are moistened.
  13. Drop by tablespoons onto hot stew.
  14. Cover and cook 25 to 35 minutes resisting the temptation to peek until the end of cooking time.
  15. Keeping the pan covered tightly results in light, fluffy dumplings.

Very good and different. I cooked mine in a crockpot for about 3 hours on high and also added in some carrots. Thanks for the recipe!

We have had so many really cool days making stew a good choice for the family supper. Used apple juice and loved the taste of the apples - which always go so well with pork. The dumplings were great - made for a real treat meal - we don't see to dumplings too often at our house ... and these were good. Thank you Paula I have added this in my file for Stews.

YUM!!! I put this in a 300F oven for 1 hr 45 min while I took dd to her swim lesson. It worked! It didn't *need* that much time but it is still fabulous. The flavors scream FALL COMFORT FOOD. I added 2 chopped onions when i browned the pork & added the scallions just before dropping ion the dumpling mix. Deeeelishhhhussss!!!
