Herbed Beef Stew and Dumplings

1 pound beef stew meat, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
2 tablespoons canola oil
2 medium onions, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
3-1/4 cups water, divided
1 teaspoon dried basil
3/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon rubbed sage
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 to 2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 pound baby carrots
3 medium parsnips, cut into 1-inch pieces
1/2 teaspoon browning sauce, optional
2 tablespoons cornstarch

1-1/3 cups all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley, optional
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 cup water

In a 5-qt. Dutch oven, brown beef in oil. Add onions and garlic; continue to cook until onions are tender. Add 3 cups water and all the seasonings. Cover and simmer until the meat is tender, about 2 to 2-1/2 hours.

Add carrots and parsnips; cover and simmer for 45 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Stir in browning sauce if desired. Combine cornstarch and remaining water until smooth; gradually stir into stew. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; boil for 1 minute.

For dumplings, combine the flour, baking powder, parsley if desired and salt. Stir in the egg, oil and water. Drop into six mounds onto simmering stew. Cover and cook for 10-12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in a dumpling comes out clean (do not lift the cover while simmering). Serve immediately. Makes 6 servings.
