Dumplings are a delicious alternative to potatoes.
To cook them, the ingredients you need are 125 grams of suet, 200 grams of self-raising flour, one small bunch parsley, salt, pepper, and 150 millilitres of cold water.
Mix these ingredients together in a bowl before tearing the mixture into pieces and rolling them into eight balls.
Pop the balls on top of the stew and place the casserole dish in the oven for 30 minutes.
This beef stew and dumplings would serve four people, therefore if eating it alone you can freeze it for future consumption.
