DIRECTIONS

  • In a deep dutch oven, heat the olive oil and sauté the onions and sugar until caramelized. Add the garlic and ground toasted caraway seed. Cook another minute.
  • Add the sweet and spicy paprika, marjoram, thyme and bay leaf. Sauté another minute, until fragrant.
  • Add the tomato paste. Deglaze with the vinegar and the stock and add the pieces of beef, salt and pepper.
  • Bring to a boil, then lower to a simmer.
  • Cover and cook until very tender, about 1 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally.
  • Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.
  • To prepare the dumplings:
  • Sift together the cake flour, baking powder and salt. Combine with the milk and melted butter, mixing lightly.
  • After the stew has cooked until tender, the last 15 mins, drop the dumpling batter by (heaping) teaspoonfuls into the simmering stew.
  • Cover and cook for 15 minutes, then test the dumpling with a toothpick - if comes out clean, dumplings are ready.
  • Once you have covered the pan, DO NOT UNCOVER while the dumplings are cooking! In order for them to be light and fluffy, they must steam. If you uncover the pan, the steam will escape and the dumplings will boil instead.
  • Enjoy!
