Beef Casserole with Garlic-Chive Dumplings is a dish made with a classic beef stew then baked with dumplings infused with garlic and chives. A true all in one dish where you have your protein from the beef, some vegetables in the form of carrots, turnips and mushrooms and of course your carbs from the dumplings. A very heart-warming dish, something new but quite familiar taste, with a touch of light and soft dumplings it a good balanced meal.
Adding dumplings into casserole or stew is not a new thing in fact it exists in American, British and Irish cuisines for a long time. Traditionally these dumplings are made with a simple concoction of flour, raising agent, water/milk and butter but the modern take to it is flavouring it with herbs. It is then partially submerged in a boiling soup then cooked with the steam or by baking.
How about you have you tried dumplings in your soup, stew or casserole?
I could make a meal from just the dumplings, but the whole dish does look totally appetizing.
This look and sounds delicious, Raymund. I’ll have to try this soon. I have a similar dish I do with beer and thyme you might also like: https://buttoni.wordpress.com/2014/03/05/braised-beef-oxtails-with-einkorn-dumplings/
