DIRECTIONS

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