Tracey's Easy English Beef Stew & Dumplings

Easy English Beef Stew & Dumplings ~ My sister-in-law, Tracey, makes a super easy, comforting, classic homestyle dinner in the crock pot.  Her recipe will soon be staring on the 'other side of pond', in my kitchen.  From England to America, dinner is served!

My sister-in-law, Tracey, (who lives in England) just shared a lovely looking photo of the dinner she made tonight, a delicious beef stew & dumplings.  I am now craving this exact meal for my dinner.  So, I asked her for her recipe.   I love sharing family recipes like this!  Just because we are so far apart, doesn't mean we can't share a meal together.  She just cooks it in her kitchen and I cook it in mine.  Thanks so much for my dinner inspiration, Tracey!  I'm dubbing your recipe...

Tracey's Easy English Beef Stew & Dumplings

Into a crock pot add ~  2 packs of cut-up stewing steak, chopped onions and carrots. Take 2 cups hot water & stir in some Marmite, an OXO Beef Cube and a packet of Colman's Beef Casserole Mix. Pour over the meat/veg.  Add more water, if needed, to just cover the meat/veg and give it a good stir.  (if the gravy/sauce is too runny, add some gravy granules to thicken it up)  

Cook it in the slow cooker/crock pot, on high, for 3-4 hrs or until the meat is tender and the veg is cooked. ~~ Then it's time to finish it in the oven, that's been preheated to 180c/350F.  Transfer the stew into an oven safe pot  (add/stir in some thawed, frozen peas if you'd like) and drop in the dumpling batter on top of the stew.  (dumplings made from a packet of dumpling mix or from the recipe from the back of the Bisquick box)  Cook the stew/dumplings, uncovered, for 30 minutes or until dumplings are a golden brown.  Serve with mashed potatoes and vegetables. x
