Pork and Sage Dumpling Stew w/ Potatoes

Limahl Asmall

"The easiest and juiciest dumplings made with pork mince (chicken mince is great too if you don't eat pork) and the secret ingredient that saves tons of time - sage stuffing! Simply mix together to make light and tasty dumplings for a hearty warming dinner that can be on the table in 20 minutes!! "

Cook Time: 20 mins | Servings: 2 | Difficulty: easy

2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
2 carrots, chopped into 2cm pieces
2 parsnips, chopped into 2cm pieces
250g potatoes, chopped into 2 cm pieces
250g swede, chopped into 2 cm pieces
200g minced pork
200g minced chicken
85g sage stuffing mix
1 chicken stock cube
1 veg stock cube
1 handful spinach
1 handful green leaves (or peas)

  1. Take a bowl and pour 200ml boiling water over the sage stuffing. Mix well and leave for a minute. Add the pork mince and stir until the pork is thoroughly combined. Wet your hands and form into 8 golf-ball sized dumplings. Make sure to firmly press the mixture together.
  2. Wash and prep the vegetables. Cut the carrot and potatoes into equal sized 2 cm pieces (skin on if you like), and dice the onion and garlic. Add to a large pot with 750ml boiling water and a stock cube.
  3. Bring to the boil then gently add the dumplings so they are submerged. Lower the heat to a gentle simmer and place a lid on the pot. Simmer for 15 minutes then add a handful spinach until wilted.
  4. Season well with black pepper and a pinch of salt. Serve hot.


Swap the minced pork and sage for a couple fat juicy sausages, each cut into 3 pieces.
