Instructions and steps:
Step 1 Preheat oven to 200°C. Heat oil in a heavy-based, 12-cup casserole dish over medium-high heat. Add 1/3 of the beef and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes, or until browned. Remove to a plate. Repeat with remaining beef.
Step 2 Add onion to casserole dish and cook, stirring, for 4 minutes, or until golden. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add paprika and flour. Stir until well combined. Slowly add stock, stirring until well combined. Add vegetables and bring mixture to the boil. Add beef and stir well. Cover casserole and bake for 1–1 1/2 hours, until meat is tender.
Step 3 Meanwhile, make dumplings: place flour into a bowl. Add spread and rub into flour using your fingers. Mixture should resemble fine breadcrumbs. Add milk and parsley and stir with a flat-bladed knife until a dough forms. Roll 2 teaspoonfuls of dough into small balls (mixture makes about 24 dumplings). Remove casserole from oven. Drop dumplings on top of casserole. Cover and bake for 10 minutes. Remove lid and bake for a further 20–30 minutes.
