Stew and Dumplings


  • Preparation dumplings: Mix flour, salt, sugar and yeast in a That's a Bowl and adding enough warm water to form a soft and pliable dough.

  • Knead the dough until elastic, cover the bowl with cling film and leave to rise for 30 min in a warm place.

  • Cover the bowl with the seal and allow the dough to rise for 30 - 45 min in a warm place.

  • Stew: Measure 350 ml of warm water into a bowl, add the vegetable and beef stock cube and allow to dissolve.

  • In the Extra Chef, place the onion, chilies and garlic, then chop finely.

  • In the Microwave Fast Cooker base, place the dissolved stock, chopped vegetable, onion and meat.

  • Add the tomato, carrot, lamb spice, herb spice, flour, red wine, potato & thyme. Mix well.

  • Place cover on top and lock in place. Place in the microwave and cook for 20 min @ 900 watts.

  • Remove from microwave and allow the yellow pressure valve to subside. Open, mix, cover and cook for another 20 min @ 900 watts.

  • While the stew cooks, prepare your dumplings: Dust your hands with some flour, pinch medium sized pieces of dough, roll them into balls that fit the palm of your hand and place on a tray.

  • Once the stew cooking time has finished, remove from the microwave and allow the Fast Cooker to cool until the pressure valve subsides.

  • Open the Fast Cooker and add the dumplings on top of the stew. Cover and place back into the microwave @ 900 watts for 10 min.

  • Allow the pressure valve to subside before opening, garnish with chopped parsley and serve.
