But yesterday, Katie was making dinner so she checked out a couple of Stew recipes for ideas. I have to say, it was the nicest stew I think I've ever eaten. It was still a basic, old-fashioned stew, but it was well seasoned, had some red wine, garlic, and a tin of tomatoes in it. Into the slow cooker it went, tempting me for the rest of day with the aroma.
I then made dumplings and chucked them in for the last half-hour or so.
Just like Mama used to make!
Oh boy, it was delicious.
Mashed potatoes and Stew.... there just aint much to beat it on a winter's day.
4oz/100g Self Raising flour
2oz/50g shredded suet
Salt and Pepper
(I doubled the recipe, and I was making it in the slow cooker, so it had been cooking for more than 2 hours)
