How to make it

  • In a stovetop friendly casserole:
  • Fry the onion until just softening
  • Add the pork and fry until sealed
  • Add the kidney and fry until sealed
  • Cover with water to about an inch over the meat
  • Add stock cubes, if using
  • Bring to the boil
  • Cover and simmer for 1 1/2 hours, checking on the water and adding more as needed.
  • Make the dumplings:
  • Sieve together the flour, baking powder and salt
  • Add dried herbs if using
  • Pour in butter and milk and stir to a sticky dough
  • Check the pork is tender - if not, give it a bit longer
  • Add the veg and more water to cover
  • Bring to the boil and thicken with either cornstarch or gravy granules
  • Taste and season
  • Drop dessert sized spoonfuls of the dumpling mix into the boiling liquid
  • Cover and simmer on a low heat for 30 minutes
  • Whatever else you do during that time DON'T lift the lid to peek because the dumplings hate that and they won't be fluffy.
