Welcome to my weekly Crockpot Recipes Exchange. It's such a great way to share your avorite dishes or to learn some new ones to make for your family.

What do you think??? Do You have some great recipes to share, or perhaps you're looking for some delicious ones to give you a reason to pull out the ol' crockpot???
Time to pull out those crockpots and put them to good use. If you want to join in, just grab the banner and add your name to Mr Linky :)

Beer Beef Stew with Dumplings


1¼ lb (500g) beef, cubed
3 tbsp all-purpose (plain) flour
2 onions, medium - sliced
½ pint (300ml) beer (ale)
2 tsp prepared mustard (paste)
1 tsp brown sugar
salt and pepper


3 oz (85g) self-raising flour
1 oz (25g) butter
1 tsp dried herbs
pinch salt and pepper
2fl oz (50 ml) milk


1 Put the flour in a plastic bag and add the beef. Toss around until coated.
2 You could now brown the meat if you desire - however we did not have time.
3 Put the beef and onion in the crock pot.
4 Mix the other ingredients together and pour over the beef.
5 Cook on low for 8-10 hours
6 Sometime during this period make the dumplings.
7 Combine all the ingredients, with sufficient milk (may need slightly more or less) to make a soft dough.
8 Shape into four to six balls.
9 About 40 minutes prior to serving, put the dumplings in the crock pot.
10 Turn on high, replace lid. And enjoy in 30-40 minutes.

Next time, I would make double the dumpling mix and make twice the number of dumplings. The dumplings worked very well.
