What you need:

1 lb of stewing steak
1 or 2 red onion ( sliced)
3 leeks ( sliced)
1 lb of small skinned potatoes (quartered)
4 carrots ( diced)
1/2 of swede ( diced)
1 parsnip ( diced)
1 1/2 pints beef stock
1 or 2 cloves garlic finely chopped or crushed (optional)

For the dumplings

100g/4ozs self-raising flour
50g/2ozs shredded suet
5 tbsp cold water, aproximately
Mixed dried herbs to flavour – optional

What to do:

Place all the ingredients into the slow cooker then add the beef stock.
Cook on medium heat for 7 to 8 hrs (or alternatively on low over night)
or high heat for 5 to 6hrs.

To make the dumplings:

Mix the flour, suet, dried mixed herbs with the water. It should not be sticky but soft and pliable. If too dry add a little more water: if too sticky add a little more flour.

Using floured hands divide dough into 8 pieces and shape into balls. Place on top of the stew around an hour before your due to serve.
Personally I prefer to cook stews on a low setting over night.
