Turkey Stew with Dumplings Recipe

My husband and I love dumplings, and this mild-tasting, homey dish has flavorful ones floating on a tasty turkey and vegetable stew. It really hits the spot on chilly fall and winter days. -Rita Taylor, St. Cloud, Minnesota
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Cook: 45 min. YIELD:10-12 servings


  • 8 medium carrots, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 4 celery ribs, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 2 cans (10-1/2 ounces each) condensed beef consomme, undiluted
  • 4-2/3 cups water, divided
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 cups cubed cooked turkey
  • 2 cups frozen cut green beans
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons minced parsley
  • 1/8 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 3/4 cup 2% milk
  • 1 egg


  • 1. In a Dutch oven, saute the carrots, celery and onion in butter for 10 minutes. Add the consomme, 4 cups water, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook over low heat for 15 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
  • 2. Add turkey and beans; cook for 5 minutes. Combine the flour, Worcestershire sauce and remaining water until smooth; stir into turkey mixture. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 5 minutes or until thickened.
  • 3. For dumplings, combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Stir in parsley and poultry seasoning. Combine milk and egg; stir into flour mixture just until moistened. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto simmering stew. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in a dumpling comes out clean (do not lift the cover while simmering). Yield: 10-12 servings.

"Just made this tonight with leftover Thanksgiving day turkey. It was fabulous. I did add 4 sprigs fresh thyme, and a crushed garlic clove. The only complaint is it really doesn't make 10 -12 servings ... it was more 6-8 servings."

"Fantastic dinner!! Made it with the stock I made w/ the turkey carcass from Thanksgiving. I made it in the crockpot and let it cook all day. I added potatoes as well. I will definitely make this again!!"
