Beef Stew With Dilly Dumplings

Teresa

I’m a sucker for any kind of recipes with dumplings and this Beef Stew with Dilly Dumplings was really, really good. The dumplings were light and airy and tasted wonderfully. I know it seems like a lot of ingredients, but I keep a well-stocked pantry so I had everything on hand for the dumplings as well as the stew.

Beef Stew with Dilly Dumplings is one of those stick-to-the-rib entrees that makes for a hearty dinner option. While you can add a side salad, you don’t really need to. This has all the traditional things in beef stew like potatoes, carrots, celery and onions. But the dumplings add some excellent herbs like dill weed, thyme and parsley to bump up the flavors. Because there’s an egg, half-and-half and butter in the dumplings, they turn out so airy. We loved them.

We eat soup, stews or chowders all year long here (even though it’s Texas). If not for a main course, certainly for lunch. Add some dumplings or hot, homemade rolls to the mix and we are in seventh heaven. But this recipe is certainly extra special in the fall or winter when you want something to warm you up.

Give Beef Stew with Dilly Dumplings a try. This delicious recipe is a fantastic twist on an old classic and favorite. Yum.
