Hearty Beef Stew with Dumplings

June 6, 2022Teresa

I love adding dumplings to stew and chili recipes and it sure works exceptionally well in this Hearty Beef Stew with Dumplings recipe. I started off with one of my favorite homemade beef stew recipes. Then I took my favorite dumpling recipe and combined them. I also made it in the crockpot so everything was incredibly easy. Yessiree! This entree is a keeper.

We had some old friends over for dinner in March along with our son and his wife. I decided to make this hearty meal for the main course. I added a wonderful new salad and one of my favorite pies: Strawberry Cream Pie. An old vintage recipe my mom used to make for us. My daughter-in-law loves my pies so I usually throw something gooey together for her. It was one fantastic meal.

This Hearty Beef Stew with Dumplings includes lots of veggies. Besides the usual potatoes, carrots and celery, I added green beans, peas, corn, mushrooms and stewed tomatoes. I seasoned the stew with Worcestershire sauce, and some of my favorite herbs. The dumplings are also well seasoned–not bland.

This is one of those filling and satisfying entrees that makes a perfect one dish meal. The fact that you can toss it together in the slow cooker and not have to watch it on top of the stove makes it even easier. I know a lot of people enjoy this kind of meal particularly in cooler climates, but we enjoy stew just about any time of the year. (Although I served this back when it was still cool outside).

For those of you who enjoy making comfort food meals for your family, this one should be at the top of your list! You may even find it wonderful enough to make your monthly menu rotation. 🙂

Instructions
BEEF STEW:
  1. Dredge stew beef in flour until well-covered.
  2. Spray crockpot with cooking spray.
  3. Add dredged beef and beef broth and cook on high heat about 2 hours until meat is almost done.
  4. Stir beef.
  5. Add potatoes, carrots, celery, onion, tomatoes, mushrooms and seasonings.
  6. Continue cooking in slow cooker on high for about 2 hours until veggies are almost fork tender.
  7. Remove bay leaves.
  8. Add corn, peas and beans and cook about 30 minutes.
  9. Add dumplings and cook about 45 minutes to an hour or until dumplings are cooked through when checked with a tooth pick.
DUMPLINGS:
  1. In a small mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, pepper, parsley, chives, thyme and marjoram.
  2. In a separate bowl whisk egg, half-and-half and melted butter.
  3. Add liquid mixture to dry mixture.
  4. Stir well to combine.
  5. Drop by large tablespoonfuls (or cookie scoops) onto hot stew.
  6. Cover slow cooker with lid and continue cooking in crockpot 45-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the dumplings comes out clean.
Recipe Notes

NOTE: Do not keep uncovering the lid while the dumplings are cooking. Wait a full 45 minutes before checking the first time. If a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, the dumplings are done. If not, check again in about 15 minutes for desired doneness.

NOTE: You can use either gluten free or regular flour in this recipe.

NOTE: Slow cooking is not a precise science. You may find that the beef, then the veggies or even the dumplings cook more quickly in your crockpot. You may have to adjust your times. The key is not to overcook the beef and veggies so that everything turns to mush by the time the dumplings are done. In some hot crockpots, this recipe may be done in 3 ½ to 4 hours. Plan accordingly.
