Turn and stir the meat while it is cooking. Place the meat in a casserole dish or pan. Keep the meat juices for the stock.Place the cooked meat in the bottom of your slow cooker.

5) cook on High for 4 - 5 hours or on Low for 8 - 10 hours.



To make the cheese dumplings.

Divide and shape into 16 teaspoon-sized dumplings.Place in the casserole.Make sure dumplings are a nice golden colour.Cook the dumpings for 20 minutes.
