Slow-cooked beef stew and dumplings.

It’s cold outside at the minute and this slow-cooked beef stew and dumplings recipe is the perfect comfort food. Slow cooking this recipe allows you to let the flavours develop, simply add the dumplings when you are almost ready to serve.

We slow cook this recipe in our oven, however, it would work just as well in the slow cooker on low all day, allowing you to come home to a gorgeous dinner with minimal effort.

For our recipe, we use stewing beef as long as you allow it long enough to cook it will be tender when you serve it. The great thing about this simple recipe, it can be adjusted to reflect what you might have in your fridge and cupboard. As you will see we used carrots, parsnips and onions, however, don’t let that stop you! Swede, turnips and leeks would be just as tasty in the stew, or a combination of all would be great too.

Now if you have a household that is not so keen on dumplings, why not switch these out. You could add new potatoes in at the point the dumplings get added. Just make sure if you are adding these in that they are in bite-size pieces to allow them time to cook.

We currently have an old Le Creuset cast iron casserole dish like this one that is perfect for stews and casseroles. Instead of these though you could use any heavy-based pan that can be used on the hob or in the oven, as long as it has a lid.
