Just the thought of Gram-Mim’s beef stew with dumplings makes my mouth water. Â I can’t remember a time that I didn’t ask for her stew and dumplings when I went over. Â I went over a lot so she must have got sick of me asking. Â It’s a simple recipe with beef, potatoes, carrots and seasonings. Â Everything is always just right and yummy melt in your mouth stew. Â The best part is the dumplings. Â Everyone got one huge dumpling but we’d always fight over the tiny ones or sliders as gram called them. Â I wish I had a photo to share and post but I’m not a food photo person but I will take a photo next time I make stew.
I now can make the stew and everyone has their favourite parts. My son likes the dumplings whereas my daughter doesn’t like them. Â My daughter gets my son’s beef chunks. Â I insist that everyone eat a few carrots since I use a two pound bag of baby carrots in my stew. Â I have made a few modifications the last few times I’ve made it. Â My gravy is made with rice flour and the dumplings are made with gluten-free Bisquick. Â The best part of my stew now is I share it with my grams now. Â
Today is cool enough to make stew but I don’t have all the ingredients here and I have to go to work tonight but I think I need to make stew soon. Â I think I want the dumplings more…yummy.
