We used this recipe camping, and it was great after a long hike! Instead of biscuts, we used sourdough rolls and cut out the centers to make bread bowls. Yum!
This reciped turned out very well. I made some big changes to suit various dietary preferences (used Morning Star "ground beef" and left the bacon and biscuits out, which I was concerned about doing) but it was very tasty. It reminded me of a sloppy joe with a mesquite twist. It was even better the next day. Cooked as it was without the biscuits, we just ate it plain with a fork, but it would be great on buns. Thanks!
Very good. I made it at home in an iron skillet and placed drop biscuits on top and then finished off in the oven to ensure browning. Will definitely make again!
try it over cornbread....AMAZING!
Tried this recipe twice. First time I made the mistake of using a shallow skillet that I use to brown all my meat. I ran into problems when I put on the biscuits. They pushed the lid up and made them not cook as well. Second time I used a deep frying pan and the recipe was much better for it. It allowed the biscuit to cook better. They came out somewhere between a fully cooked biscuit and a dumpling. I used a 1/2 cup of BBQ sauce and sprinkled the top with shredded cheddar cheese. This is a really popular recipe now in my house. Absolutley wonderful!!!
I made it once and it's now in high demand our annual family camping trip! I cooked it up at home and froze it in freezer baggies so it would keep in the cooler and then just heated it up on the camp site. I too made the biscuits separately so they wouldn't turn out like dumplings.
My family has been making a recipe almost identical to this one for years. The only difference is we used a biscuit and baking mix (such as bisquick)for the topping and when the biscuit mixture was browned, we would melt cheddar cheese over the top. I think I'll give it a try with the canned biscuits. Either way, it's a 5 star for me!
good, easy, and fast. As per other reviews, i mixed everything and simmered for a few minutes stovetop, then popped in the oven in a 13x9 pan after topping with biscuits (my biscuit can was actually 15 oz, the "Grands" kind, hence the larger cassorole dish). Baked about 15 min at 375 then just shut off the oven and let it set for a while...also added s&P, a dash of hot sauce, steak sauce, ketchup and a little br sugar. nothing special or exciting, but didn't claim to be...this is a great "I worked lated and I'm POOPED" dinner:) excellent!
