This turned out great. The meat was so tender that it almost melted in your mouth, and the dumplings were terrific -- the spices really made them special, and the vinegar gave a kick to the steak, but it was a subtle taste. I took out the beef when the stew was done and then reduced the sauce a little to make it more like a gravy. It got a thumbs-up from all of us. Yum -- a great recipe.
I posted and the post just disappear, so I will post it again. This is a very nice dish so rich and full of flavour. The little dumplings were very nice to. I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out just great. thank you for posting. Made for ZWT#6 2010
