- Let rest 15 minutes so the baking powder and cornmeal can work keep covered. Add in the cornbread mix..
- It will tighten up just a bit. Spoon in the fall apart dumplings till you have about this much in the picture left. That's for frying. Add 2 cups of water to the stew to help it not burn or get too thick..
- Heat a skillet add the remaining mixture to the hot skillet and fry. When the bubble craters appear it's time to turn. Turn it, cover it for 3 minutes. Then just turn off the heat. Let rest in skillet covered till ready to eat. This will let it rise a bit and get done..
