1. Season the meat with salt and freshly ground pepper.

2. Heat the oil and brown the meat. Add the onions, garlic and tomato paste and stir-fry for a few minutes.

3. Add the tomatoes and stock and simmer for 45 minutes or until the meat is tender. Add more water if necessary – the stew should have plenty of liquid.

4. Heat the oven to 200 °C. Transfer the stew to a deep ovenproof dish.

5 Dumplings Mix the flour and herbs and rub in the butter. Add a little water to form a stiff dough.

6 Pinch off pieces of the dough and roll into balls. Arrange on top of the stew, cover with foil and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the dumplings are done. Serve with rice*.


These dumplings are perfect with potjiekos too. Arrange the dough balls on top of the cooked potjiekos, over with the lid and simmer until the dumplings are done.
