    1. Ohh I was Disappointed with the dumplings I don’t like him crunchy so I had to redo them in a pan of boiling water with vegetable stock much better delicious I won’t be doing dumplings in a food ninja again

    1. Like I said above I didn’t like the dumplings done in the food ninja I do not like crispy dumplings so I redid them in boiling water and a vegetable stock cube much better

  1. Thank you for this. We had it last night. I did add a little more veg in the form of leaks, swede and sweet potato, but it came out perfectly with your instructions. We are new to pressure cooking and my wife was convinced it wouldn’t cook through in such a short time, especially the beef. But it was delicious and just fell apart. Now to look for the next thing to cook…

      1. Sorry for the late reply – I only see it because I’m back to refresh on the method.

        How did it go? I found the swede to be soft and delicious.

        Just made it again and it was just as good as ever.

  2. Thanks for this recipe, I made this on New Years Day and it was a big hit with everyone!
    The only thing is that it was the first time I had used the pressure cooker function and when it came time to vent, I had a volcanic eruption in my kitchen lol! Is this normal or have I gone wrong somewhere?

      1. I had stock spurting out of the vent going all over the place lol! No I haven’t done the water test, I will do this before use that function again.
        Thanks very much!

  3. Try this as today but the pressure cooking reached pressure as the values closed but than it said add water. After releasing the steam and checking it was still full of liquid. What am I doing wrong?

  4. Just made this for our tea’s will definitely be doing it again. Dumplings scrumptious wish I’d made more.
    This is the 1st time I’ve made stew and dumplings in a pc can’t believe it was ready in fraction of time meat tender veg cooked to perfection. Only downside it hadn’t thickened like I thought it would more cornflower next time.

  5. Hi, still very new to this appliance but enjoying so far.

    Can you tell me, if I wanted to batch cook two nights worth (i.e. 8 servings) would I simply double all the ingredients including the stock?

    And if this is possible, would you recommend adjusting the cooking time?

    Many thanks.

    1. Yes of course you can increase the quantities – if you double up you should only need to increase the time by a couple of minutes, but it would be trial and error.

  6. Hi. I’m new here and haven’t used my Foodi yet so aren’t sure about quantities. Is this to serve 2 people?

    Also, do you change the lid to the air crisper lid to do the dumplings?

    Finally, I see loads of recipes requiring beef stock. I’m not a cook and assume that making your own stock with bones etc is the best, but are decent quality cubes, or say Knorr beef stock pots an acceptable alternative?

    Thanks

    1. This makes around 6 portions. Yes use the crisper lid for the dumplings. You can use homemade stock or stock cubes like oxo or Knorr. Whatever you prefer

  7. Hi making this as we speak – as I am not confident using a pressure cooker I am following inst to the letter, do u put any oil in to sear /sauté I haven’t so I’ll see what happens
    Thanks

  8. Great recipe. I make my own suet dumplings with rosemary ,thyme and fennel. In for the last 10 minutes as per the recipe. Fantastic.
