This rich-flavored beef stew is complemented with homemade herb dumplings. The stew slow-cooks until everything is tender, then the wonderfully herby dumplings go in later. This makes a tasty and satisfying meal, and is especially popular during the cooler months in fall and winter.
Just look how tasty these herby homemade dumplings are and they are the perfect accompaniment to such a tasty beef stew recipe. This is quite an aromatic crockpot beef stew, thanks to the thyme, mustard, wine and of course the herbs used in the dumplings.
It’s also fortified with mushrooms for an earthy flavor and the red wine (or use beef broth if you prefer) really gives this crockpot beef stew a wonderful richness, bringing out the flavor of the meat. This is a very simple recipe, considering how great it tastes.
Start making it early to ensure it is ready by dinnertime. The smell will be making your mouth water before dinnertime rolls around – guaranteed!
