I made a recipe once called Jools's Favourite Beef Stew from a Jamie Oliver Book - but I got the book from the library so can't give you the recipe. Sorry that's not much help at all - the stew was delicious though wish I'd copied the recipe.
Yes that is the stew Just add dumplings - by Atora (I think its called?!) suet add flour and water and pop on top at the end of cooking. I didnt use Jerusalem Artichoke but it was still lovely - can highly recommend.
See what you mean about the comments catinthehat. made me giggle (bad reflection on my weird sense of humour)
