I thought it was high time for a food post. I mean, it's been a whole week since Thanksgiving and all. ;)
4 c. beef stock
1 c. water
1 sm (Jiffy) box biscuit mix
2 T. mixed herbs
Season some flour with salt, pepper and paprika in a shallow dish. Dredge the beef in the seasoned flour and brown in batches in a small amount of olive oil. Reserve meat on a plate.
Mix the biscuit mix according to package directions, adding the chopped fresh herbs. Drop the dough as dumplings on the surface of the stew. Return uncovered to oven for fifteen minutes. Let stand for ten minutes before serving. You may need to adjust the thickness of the stew. If after the two hours before you add the dumplings it is too runny, make a small amount of slurry and stir it completely into the stew. If it is too thick, add a little water.
