    4 hours 5 min

    Done in the slow cooker this recipe means cheaper cuts of meat fall apart and give plenty of flavour to the stew. It goes well with crusty bread.

    1. Place all the veg in the slow cooker with the meat on top.
    2. Pour in the stock and Worcester sauce and sprinkle with black pepper. Cook on high for 3 hours and 20 minutes.
    3. Add the dumplings and cook for a further 40 minutes. If you add several dumplings you may want to increase the amount of liquid as the dumplings absorb some liquid.


    This recipe is adaptable, you can also add diced regular potatoes or swede.
