Expert Tips

Save time cleaning and slicing carrots by using 2 cups of ready-to-eat baby-cut carrots instead.

To make fluffy dumplings, drop the dumpling dough onto the stew pieces rather than directly into the liquid. The dumplings will steam rather than settle into the liquid and become soggy. Also, be sure the stew is piping hot, so the dumplings will start to cook from the steam right away.
