"THESE DUMPLINGS can be serve in beef broth, or you can thicken the broth like gravy and serve this dish as a stew. Either way, they are hearty, delicious and different!"

"I had never heard of such a thing as liver dumplings, so I was intrigued. My spouse and I both love beef liver, but I wasn't sure how this would go over. He proclaimed it a definite winner! Fairly simple to make, I probably made it harder and messier because of my unfamiliarity with the dish. It makes a lot, so next time I will work out how to halve the recipe. Very tasty, hearty, and filling for a cool Autumn night!"

"My austrian mother in law makes something very close but it is much more work - the grinder is too much work, but a small food processor in batches gave the same result. I really liked it but would omit the coriander next time and substitute marjoram. I made my dumplings tiny not large but loved it very much!"
