Chipotle Beef with Masa Dumplings

This gluten free dish is a warm and filling slow cooked meal brimming with rich beef, smoky vegetables, and fluffy masa dumplings. We start this dish on the skillet to render the bacon and brown the beef before transferring it to the Suvie to slow cook for over 3 hours. The masa dumplings are steamed during the slow cook process for a light, fluffy counterpart to the flavorful base of vegetables, meat, and spices.
