BBQ Beef-Filled Biscuits

This meal couldn't have been any easier to make. The hardest part for me was removing the biscuits from the muffin tin. They'll slide right out of the muffin pan as long as you give them a chance to cool for a few minutes. These biscuits were fun to eat and made for a pretty presentation - no forks necessary! For those of you who have a hard time deciding on a BBQ sauce, let me recommend Sweet Baby Ray's Original BBQ Sauce.
Enjoy! - Allison Y.

BBQ Beef-Filled Biscuits
Adapted from a Kraft Foods recipe

1 lb. extra lean ground beef
1 small green pepper (finely chopped)
1 small onion (finely chopped)
1 handful mushrooms (chopped)
1 clove garlic (chopped)
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup BBQ sauce
1 can refrigerated large buttermilk biscuits
1 cup shredded cheese - Mexican blend
salt and pepper

*Side note - My veggies all turned out to be about 1/2 cup's worth after being chopped.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a medium skillet, saute pepper, onion, mushrooms, and garlic in 1 Tablespoon of olive oil over medium-high heat for 3 minutes. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Add ground beef and brown until no pink remains. Remove from heat. Stir in barbecue sauce. Separate biscuits. Press 1 biscuit into the bottom and up the sides of 8 muffin cups. Put a little pinch of shredded cheese into each cup. Spoon generous portions of the meat mixture into biscuit cups; Press the meat mixture down into the cups with the back of a spoon, adding more if necessary. Bake for 10 minutes or until the biscuits are lightly browned. Top with cheese; Bake 3 to 4 more minutes or until the cheese has melted. Remove biscuits from oven to cool for about 3 minutes before pulling them out of the muffin pan.

  1. Allison, love your blog and can't wait to try out some of these recipes. I also highly recommend Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce, I use it in lots of BBQ recipes and just by itself it is a great sauce.
