Aha, another light bulb moment! This recipe is for true dumpling lovers. Tired of potatoes and rice? Why not serve a delicious side dish of Gravy and Dumplings? That is what we did for last night's supper. The gravy was perfect spooned over crockpot short ribs, complemented by a side dish of fluffy garlic and onion dumplings. Mmmm! Enjoy!

How to Make BEEF GRAVY AND DUMPLINGS -- a side dish by BONNIE

Step-by-Step

  1. Cook's Tip: These dumplings are also good with chicken. I season them a little differently when serving them with poultry. Check out my chicken and dumpling recipe! PIONEER CHICKEN AND HERB DUMPLINGS - BONNIE'S
  2. Bring the water and bouillon to a boil over medium high heat.
    Make The Dumplings:
    In a small bowl, add flour, baking powder, salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder, and parsley. Mix dry ingredients well, then add butter. Mash the butter into the flour with a fork, then using your fingers distribute it evenly throughout the flour, then add milk. Stir mixture just until wet. The goal is to make a sticky, moist, spoonable dough.
  3. Make sure the broth is boiling. Dip your spoon in the hot broth, and then drop spoonfuls of the dough into the simmering broth until the bowl is empty. Turn the heat up and bring it to a boil and then immediately turn the heat to simmer (so it won't tear your dumplings) Put the lid on tight. Cook 20 minutes. NO PEEKING, PLEASE! You will lose your steam, because the heat and steam is what cooks your dumplings. Turn off the heat, set aside. Let the pan rest on the burner for about five minutes to let the gravy thicken.
  4. Spoon the gravy over beef of your choice and serve with the dumplings as a side dish with a green vegetable. Enjoy!
