Beef Stew and Dumplings

My Mum's Beef Stew is the best. What with the cold weather and the way things are with money everywhere these days, this stew can feed up to eight people served with bread and potatoes. It can even be made in a slow cooker.

Yes, there are dumplings underneath all that stew - I should have taken a picture before I added more of the beef stew!

Apart from giving it a stir now and then it can look after itself most of the time too. So please don't be put off by the long list of ingredients. Pearl barley can be found in any good supermarket.

This amount will serve 4 very hungry people easily but served with bread or boiled potatoes you could easily serve eight. 

Can you Freeze Beef Stew?

You can also freeze it in portions if you wanted to and all it would require once defrosted before reheating.

But I would make the dumplings fresh when you have reheated it - just add the dumpling mixture on top of the hot stew and cook uncovered for about 25 minutes.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew

Yes, you can make this beef stew and dumplings in a slow cooker. Once the stew is done just add the dumpling mixture on top of the bubbling stew. Turn the heat to low and remove the lid. Cook the dumplings for about 25 minutes.
