Beef Stew with Cheddar Dumplings Recipe

My family asks for this stew just about every week. But it's perfect for company, too—it's easy, and everyone comments on the cheese in the dumplings. —Jackie Riley, Garrettsville, Ohio

"Really has a rich, robust flavor. Love the Cheddar biscuits. I added potatoes to make the soup a little heartier."

"My family enjoyed this recipe, especially the dumplings! We try a lot of different recipes to change things up a bit and most are just okay. This one is a keeper and worth trying. My boys (16 & 18) are my best testers and they gave it a thumbs up! I used college inn beef broth instead of water and bouillon."

"I made this for dinner tonight and it was fantastic. My family isn't a huge fan of the dumplings so I added potatoes to the stew and omitted the dumplings. Great flavor, this will definitely be a staple at our house over the winter!"
