Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a Dutch oven over high heat. Dust beef in flour, shaking off excess. Working in batches, brown beef for 2-3 mins. Set aside. Add remaining oil and sauté bacon, onion and garlic over medium heat for 4-5 mins, until bacon is golden. Return beef to pan along with stock, wine, vegetables and herbs. Bring to a boil, cover and transfer to oven for 1 hour.
  3. Meanwhile, to make the dumplings, sift flour into a medium bowl. Cut in butter until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Whisk together egg, milk, parsley and horseradish cream then mix into flour. Drop tablespoonfuls of mixture, about 3/4 inch apart, on top of stew. Sprinkle with Parmesan. Bake, uncovered, for 20-25 mins, until dumplings are golden and cooked through.
