Preparation
STEP 1

Combine beef and flour into a mixing bowl. Season with salt and pepper, toss to combine and shake off excess flour.

STEP 2

Heat a large sauté pan over medium-high heat and generously coat with oil. Working in batches, brown meat and place in crockpot. When all meat is browned, add wine to pan and bring to a boil, scraping up browned bits from bottom.

STEP 3

Add wine and remaining stew ingredients to crockpot. Season with salt and pepper. Cook on high for 4-6 hours or on low for 8-10 hours, until beef is tender.

STEP 4

Combine dumpling ingredients and stir together with a fork. Drop by the spoonful into stew. Do not stir. Cover and cook on high for 25-35 minutes longer, or until dumplings are cooked through. Serve hot.

Options

To cook on stove-top in a heavy-bottomed soup pot or Dutch oven, cover and simmer for 1 ½ - 2 hours, or until meat is tender, then add dumplings and cook for 25-35 minutes until dumplings are cooked through.
