Turkey Stew with Dumplings

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

    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


  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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).

    The stew itself was very tasty. However, the dumplings were disappointing. Despite all the seasonings they were bland and they were quite dry as well. I gave it four stars, because the recipe can be easily fixed by using a different dumpling recipe.

    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!!

    I used chicken soup nase instead of the beef. My family loved it and the dumplings (my first time ever making them) turned out great! Will definately make again.
