Comment on Beef and Ale Stew with Buttermilk Scallion Dumplings by Artsy Forager.

We made this for St. Patty’s Day yesterday and despite it being in the mid-80s where we’re currently living ( California High Desert ), it was absolutely delicious! Raves from the hubby, he couldn’t wait to take the leftovers for lunch today.

I think you may have a typo, though– are you sure it’s supposed to be 4.5 teaspoons for the dumplings? I tried that measurement at first but it didn’t seem nearly enough so increased it to get the right consistency. If it is a typo, wanted to bring it to your attention.. if it’s not, then well, I made some really buttery dumplings! 😉
