Method

  1. • Preheat your oven to 190°C/375°F/gas 5
    • Put your flour into a mixing bowl
    • Using a coarse grater, grate your cold butter into the flour
    • Add a pinch of salt and pepper
    • Using your fingers, gently rub the butter into the flour until it begins to resemble breadcrumbs
    • Add a splash of cold water to help bind it into a dough
    • Divide the dough into 24 pieces and gently roll each into a round dumpling. The dumplings will suck up quite a bit of moisture so if your stew looks dry - add a cup of boiling water and give it a good stir
    • Place the dumplings on top of your fully cooked stew and press down lightly so that they’re half submerged
    • Cook in the oven or on the hob over a medium heat with the lid on for 30 minutes
