Weeknight Beefy Stew

Serves 6 Prep Time 10 minutes   Cook Time 50 minutes  
by Tenina Holder

Nothing says comfort food like a steaming bowl of stew with a yummy homemade dumpling or two to mop up all the juices. Although this takes nearly an hour to cook, you won’t regret the wait when you tuck into it. So many variations … you could practically serve it every night of the week, and they wouldn’t notice it is the same recipe. (I dare you!)

Cook Once Eat Twice:

Omit the dumplings, cook stew, pour into a casserole dish and cover with Mash. Sprinkle with a little grated cheese and cook under a hot grill until cheese is golden.

Omit the dumplings, cook stew, pour into a casserole dish and cover with a layer of Iced Puff Pastry. Slash slits in the top of the pastry, brush with egg wash and cook in a 200°C oven for 30 minutes, or until top is golden and puffed, and stew is bubbling around the edges.

For both of these options, you may need to add a little flour at the beginning to help thicken the stew.
