  • 2 T Butter
  • 32 oz Beef Stock
  • 1 medium Onion, chopped
  • 3 Celery Stalks, chopped
  • 1 cup Carrots, chopped
  • 1 Bell Pepper I used a red bell pepper)

  • 3 Potatoes, diced
  • Dumplings

  1. In a large dutch oven or stock pot melt butter over medium high heat. Add half of the beef to the pot and brown. Remove from pot and add remaining beef and brown. Slowly add beef stock to the pot and scrape bottom to loosen the browned beef bits and add the remaining browned beef to the pot. Simmer for about an hour.
  2. In a saute pan melt 2 Tbsp Butter. Add onion, celery, carrots, peppers salt, pepper, paprika (enough to make it a lovely red color) and the caraway seeds and saute for 5-8 minutes until veggies are softened. Add to the stock pot and simmer until beef and carrots are cooked through. Add potatoes to the pot and simmer until cooked.
  3. Dumplings
  4. In a bowl add flour and salt. Make a well in the center and add the eggs and mix well until dough forms. Spread dough on plate and cut into strips and add to simmering pot. Simmer 20 to 30 minutes until dumplings are cooked.
