Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a glass baking dish (such as Pyrex®) with cooking spray.

  • Heat oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Add carrots, onions, and celery and saute until onions are translucent, 5 to 7 minutes.

  • At the same time, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir ground beef in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain and discard grease.

  • Move beef to one side of the skillet and melt butter over medium heat. Whisk in flour a little at a time until combined; whisk in milk, whisking constantly to prevent lumps. Stir in beef broth. Add sauteed vegetables, garlic salt, onion powder, garlic powder, and black pepper. Bring to a boil; cover and remove from heat.

  • Add buttermilk to baking mix. Stir until a soft dough forms. Place on waxed paper. Roll to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut with a 2 1/2-inch round biscuit cutter dipped in baking mix.

  • Pour the beef mixture into the prepared baking dish and top with biscuits.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until biscuits are browned, 24 to 25 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

You can add mashed potatoes to the bottom of the glass pan before baking.

To make this a quicker meal, use frozen vegetables.

Use your own recipe for biscuits if you prefer.

I made this but modified the recipe a bit: I used ground chicken breast instead of ground beef, chicken broth instead of beef broth, and added chicken broth concentrate to the gravy mixture. I didn't use milk, just broth and it turned out fine. I also didn't use onions (food allergy in my house), and added 2 diced red potatoes and diced up 3 stalks of celery. It was really good and I'll be making it again for sure. Read More

Very good. Didn't change the recipe except I used a box of biscuit mix that I had on hand. My family said this recipe is a keeper. Thanks for sharing. Read More

This recipe did remind me of cooking from the 50's and 60's, which I grew up on. The recipe worked exactly as written but I can't say the spicing was sufficient to give it any taste. When I put so much prep time into it, this was really disappointing. Perhaps adding a little real onion and garlic would make it better, as well as other spices you prefer. I also think adding a tiny amount of "heat" via hot sauce or cayenne pepper would make this excellent. Putting mashed potatoes in the bottom was a good idea, but I did have to take the biscuits off to the side because nobody wanted to combine potatoes and biscuits in their mouths! This does have promise but I would not make it as written again. Read More

Fun and easy to make. Served it with a salad and we liked the meal. I added the potatoes on the bottom of the dish and I used frozen veggies. Will make this again. Read More

I really enjoyed following this recipe while preparing this new meal today. It tasted delicious! The biscuits along with the cooked ground beef and vegetables together was a home-cooked meal for the whole family to enjoy! Read More

Really loved the taste of this casserole, and makes a wonderful change from Sheppard's Pie. The only tricky part was getting the biscuit dough formed, cut and placed on top of the dish. It was VERY wet and sticky - instead of trying to make a biscuit shape, I think I will try to just drop it by spoonful on the top instead and see. Thank you tons for sharing this recipe - it is certainly on our rotation now! Read More

My family and I loved this recipe, and I will be making it again. They are tough to please, so if it passed their taste test, it has to be good. The only thing that I added, was some finely chopped pototoes. This recipe tastes even better the next day, when reheated. Read More

Made me think of my childhood. My mom always put Bisquick bisquits on top of stew. I liked the hamburger version. I used lots of carrots, onions and celery. I added about 3 cloves of garlic, and because my husband is salt limited, I did not use any salt except for what was in the beef bone broth I used. That was 280 mg per cup. For the whole recipe, that would be 560 mg of sodium. Great recipe. I will make it again for sure. Read More
