2 pounds chuck or stew meat, cut into 2" cubes 1/2 cup flour 1 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon black pepper 1 1/2 cup beef broth 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce 1 clove garlic 1 bay leaf 1 teaspoon paprika 4 carrots, sliced 3 potatoes, diced 2 onions, chopped 1 stalk celery, sliced 2 teaspoons Kitchen Bouquet, optional ***DUMPLINGS*** 1 1/4 cup flour 2 teaspoons baking powder 1 teaspoon salt 1 egg, beaten 2/3 cup milk 1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
Place meat in crock pot. Mix flour, salt and pepper. Pour over meat and mix well. Add remaining ingredients and mix. Cover and cook on low 10-12 hours or high 4-6 hours. Turn crock pot to high while preparing dumplings.
Mix flour, baking powder, salt. Stir in egg and milk. Drop by teaspoonfuls on simmering stew. Sprinkle parsley on dumplings. Cover and cook on high 1 hour. Turn to low until serving time. Will hold well for 1-2 hours.
I love that this recipe doesn't use any shortcuts. Everything is made from scratch and wonderfully delicious. This is now one of my favorite recipes and I will be making it quite often. The beef is very tender and the stew has lots of flavor. The dumplings are perfect and cooked through.

Loved this recipe! It was so easy to make and came out absolutely deliciously. My husband and I will have this again for dinner tonight.
