Serves 6

This recipe is adapted from:
                   Jamie's Ministry of Food

    250 g self-raising flour (two heaping cups)
    125 g butter, really cold
(a bit less than 1/2 cup)
    sea salt
    freshly ground black pepper


  • Preheat your oven to 190°C/375°F/gas 5 (if intending to bake)
  • Put your flour into a mixing bowl
  • Using a coarse grater, grate your cold butter into the flour
  • Add a pinch of salt and pepper
  • Using your fingers, gently rub the butter into the flour until it begins to resemble breadcrumbs
  • Add a splash of cold water to help bind it into a dough
  • Divide the dough into 24 pieces and gently roll each into a round dumpling. The dumplings will suck up quite a bit of moisture so if your stew looks dry - add a cup of boiling water and give it a good stir
  • Place the dumplings on top of your fully cooked stew and press down lightly so that they're half submerged
  • Cook in the oven or on the hob (stove) over a medium heat with the lid on for 30 minutes
