Chunky Steak and Vegetable Soup (with Dumplings)

Chunky Steak and Vegetable Soup (with Dumplings) ~ Rich, hearty and comforting steak and vegetable soup with dumplings

There are so many different things one can serve with soup, but Dumplings are an absolute delight served with soup. I always make this chunky Steak and Vegetable soup with Dumplings, as it just goes so well with this particular soup dish.

It takes a little longer and a small extra recipe is of course required for the Dumplings, but it is oh, so worth it ! And best of all, the Dumplings cook on top of the Soup for the last part of the overall cooking required, which gives you the most delicious Dumplings ever.

I like to scoop a piece of Dumpling onto my spoon together with a bit of soup and chew away. But I have also seen the kids leaving the Dumplings till last, because as they say .. that’s the best part and the longer it lingers in your soup, the tastier and more flavorful it becomes.

When I say, chew, I mean it is not the featherlight kind of Dumpling, but rather the chewier kind which I prefer in savory dishes. The featherlight kind .. yep, I prefer them served as a dessert.

Pressed for time ? Yes, you can leave out the Dumplings, but let me warn you – you will. be. missing. out. big. time 😉
