    10-12 servings

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 3 pounds boneless beef top round steak, cut into serving-size pieces
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2-2/3 cups water
  • 2 cans (10-3/4 ounces each) condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • DUMPLINGS:
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup dried minced onion
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons celery salt
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons poultry seasoning
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups milk
  • 6 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted

Directions

  • In a large resealable plastic bag, combine flour and paprika. Add beef, a few pieces at a time, and shake to coat.
  • In a Dutch oven over medium-high heat, brown steak in oil on both sides in batches, adding more oil if necessary. Remove and keep warm.
  • In the drippings, saute onion until tender. Stir in the water, soup and pepper. Bring to a boil. Return meat to pan. Cover and bake at 325° for 1-1/2 hours.
  • Meanwhile, for dumplings, combine the flour, minced onion, baking powder, poppy seeds, celery salt, poultry seasoning and salt in a bowl. Combine milk and oil; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
  • Increase oven temperature to 425°. In a large bowl, combine bread crumbs and butter. Drop dumpling batter by rounded tablespoonfuls into crumb mixture; roll to form dumplings. Place on top of simmering beef mixture.
  • Cover and bake 20-25 minutes longer or until a toothpick inserted in a dumpling comes out clean (do not lift the cover while baking).
