Mmm Beef Stew & Dumplings

"A hearty delicious beef stew ready in less than 2 hours! Of the dozens of different recipes I've tried, this is my favorite. The Dumplings in this recipe are from this site (Recipe #30965) and they are great (light and fluffy). Enjoy!"

Ready In:




  • Heat oil in heavy large pot over medium-high heat. Coat Beef in flour and add to the hot oil. Saute beef until browned on all sides. Add beef stock, water, wine, tomato paste, sugar, thyme, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, bay leaf, celery, onions and carrots. Do not add the parsley at this point!
  • Bring mixture to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer for 1 hour and 45 minutes.
  • Discard bay leaves.
  • Make dumplings according to recipe (see recipe description above for my suggested recipe--Recipe#30965). Roll into small bite size rounds and drop into stew. Continue to simmer for an additional 15 minutes.
  • Sprinkle with parsley and serve.

    Does it really need 12 garlic cloves or is that a typo??

    Wonderful stew Canadian Cookie! I used Graybert's recipe #35950 and my Recipe #269611 for the dumplings. The meat was so tender and the brown gravy was very good. I used baby carrots that I cut in half. Maybe a bit of salt and pepper to add but other than that perfect beef stew.

    The whole family loved it, of course the kids ate all the dumplings, we had it the next day too, it was even better!


My secret indulgence? Grocery Shopping. I can literally spend hours roaming up and down the aisles of a Supermarket. Sound crazy? Not if you're a self described "Foodie" like me. I am fortunate enough to live in the city of Vancouver, British Columbia. The food community here is very rich in diversity, which has allowed me to sample tasty treats from all over the planet right here at home. Aside from the Supermarket, there are tons of smaller Ethnic Grocery Stores, Butcher shops and Bakeries here in the city. Vancouver is also home to the Granville Island Public Market - a food lovers haven! Imagine over 100 fresh produce, local seafood, speciatly meat and gourmet shops all in the same building... no wonder I love cooking so much! <a href=""> <img src="" width="300"height="250"border="0" alt="Cooking With Wine"></a>
