How to make Beef and Dumpling Soup:
  • Keep the meat in a deep bottomed vessel or pot with cold water. Boil the meat and remove the froth as it rises to the top.
  • Add onion, all spices, bay leaf, turnip, carrot, marjoram and salt. Cover and let it simmer for 1 1/2 hours.
  • Next add the peeled potatoes without chopping them. Simmer until cooked. Remove from the broth and cool it.
  • Now mash the potatoes with the fork and add 1/4 cooking broth, flour, egg and salt. Blend them well.
  • When the meat becomes tender remove from the broth and cool it.
  • Take a rounded tablespoon of dough and release it in the broth, dipping the spoon in the broth between each dumpling. If the dumplings break, add a little more flour to the dough to make it firm. Simmer it for 5-10 minutes.
  • Remove the bones and fat from the meat. Cut them into bite size chunks, and add to the soup. Add salt to taste.
  • Garnish it with chopped parsley.
Serve hot with bread.
