REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
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.
