Comment on Beef and Ale Stew with Buttermilk Scallion Dumplings by Mad Anne Kidd.

We may have had about 2 feet of snow here yesterday when we were plotting to make this, but it was 50 degrees out today. No matter, it was still a great day to try this recipe. It was delicious! The buttermilk dumplings were a great change from potatoes, and the ale (Sam Adam Boston Lager) made a delicious base for the meat and veggies. Very easy and satisfying to create. I will definitely save this recipe! Thanks!

Made this for dinner last night – it had great flavor. And I loved that the only ingredients I didn’t have was the cheese! My only issue was that the asiago cheese clumped. How do you keep it from turning into annoying (but delicious) lumps? Thanks, will definitely make this recipe again!
