I was intimidated at first to make this with the long list of ingredients, but it was definately worth it! The best part of the stew was the parsley dumplings! Normally I serve my beef stew over noodles, but the dumplings were all the "starch" it needed. Will definately make again! Thanks!
We really liked this. I did not make the dumplings as I was taking it to a friends house and I was making beer bread to go with it. I used veggie oil instead of the shortening. We really liked the flavor and I hope to make it again very soon. It seeemed like a long list of instructions but it really was not bad at all. Thank you.
