Yield: 5-6 servings


  • 2 lbs beef, 1-inch cubed
  • 1 cup onion, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 32 oz can tomatoes, chopped
  • 4 oz mushrooms, chopped
  • 2-1/2 cups water, hot
  • 1-1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp dried marjoram
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 cup potatoes, peeled, cubed
  • 1 cup celery, chopped
  • 1 cup carrots, chopped
  • 1/4 cup water, cold
  • 2 Tbsp Hodgson Mill All Purpose White Flour
  • 2 cups Hodgson Mill Insta-Bake
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup sour cream


  • Brown beef and onion in oil in a Dutch oven. Add tomatoes, including liquid, mushrooms, hot water, salt, pepper and sugar. Heat to boiling; reduce heat; cover and simmer until beef is tender, about 1-1/2 hours.
  • Add marjoram, thyme, potatoes, celery and carrots. Cover and simmer an additional 30 minutes until vegetables are tender. Mix cold water and flour until smooth; gradually stir into beef mixture. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly for 1 minute then remove from heat. Mix Insta-Bake, butter and sour cream until well blended. Drop by spoonful onto hot stew mixture and bake in preheated 450°F oven 10 minutes or until biscuits have browned.
  • Note: If you don’t have a large oven-safe pot or dutch oven, you may cook the stew on the stovetop, transfer to a 9x13-inch pan, and add biscuit dumplings and bake as directed.
