The extra mile …
If you want to make it even more of a homely dish, why not add some dumplings? To make them, combine 250g of self-raising flour and 125g of cold butter in a large bowl until they resemble fine breadcrumbs, season with salt, pepper and a dash of mixed herbs and add water as needed to bind it into a dough. Then add them on top of your casserole when placing in the oven, pressing them down slightly so that they are half submerged. Do not forget to add a cup of boiling water into the stew to replace the moisture that they soak up!
