Method:

1.Toss together meat, ketchup, sugar, ground cinnamon, thyme, and Worcestershire sauce so that the meat is evenly coated.

2. Add oil to a pot and place over medium high heat until shimmering, add meat and cook until beginning to brown, about 5 minutes. Add jalapeno pepper, green pepper, ginger, garlic, celery, onion and half of the cilantro and continue to cook until the vegetables begin to lose their juices. Add stock or water and bring to a simmer. Cover and let simmer over medium low heat for 2 hours, or until the meat is very tender. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

3. To make the dumplings mix together flour and a pinch of salt then add the coconut milk and knead until the dough comes together. Bring to stew to a rapid simmer and add all the dumplings. If there isn’t enough liquid in the pot add some more stock or water so that the dumplings are all covered and simmer dumplings 10 minutes. Taste the seasoning and adjust as necessary and serve immediately with all the garnishes at hand so people can top their own plates.
