  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Melt 2 tablespoons of shortening in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and ground beef to the pan, and cook until onion is tender and beef is browned, stirring frequently and crumbling beef. Drain fat. Season with 1 teaspoon of salt and pepper, then sprinkle 3 tablespoons of flour over the top. Pour in the tomatoes and Worcestershire sauce, and stir to blend everything. Cook for a few minutes, until slightly thickened. Stir in the carrots and green beans, then transfer to a 2 quart casserole dish.
  3. In a medium bowl, stir together 1 cup of flour, baking powder, mustard powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Cut in 2 tablespoons of shortening until only small lumps remain, then stir in the cheese and milk to make a thick batter. Spoon over the top of the casserole, and spread evenly.
  4. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until the top of the puff is golden brown.

This was good. My husband liked it. I liked the bottom part alright but wasn't insane over the cheese puff business. I followed the advice of another reviewer and added more cheese, and... the result was kind of stiff. Not at all puffy. I am positive it was entirely my fault and not the recipe. :D I'm not great at this!

Pic #2 (prior to transferring to cassarole dish) & #3 are mine. I made a few small changes; substituted Shortening with Butter, Gr. Beans with Gr & Rd Pepper. I added some extra ingrediants; 250g cooked rice, 1 tsp Garlic Salt, Cinnamon, Thyme & Paprika ~ 1/2 tsp of each, 1 Cup Beef Broth. Smelled very good while baking. I took a small taste when it cooled. The Cheese Puff is quite Stiff and lacks flavour, but the meat & Veg mixture is tasty.

This recipe was so quick and easy and TASTY! My husband and daughter couldn't get enough of it and the leftovers were even tastier! Very good when you are strapped for time. I added frozen corn and peas to mine, and it was fantastic!

This was dish was delish, the cheese in the bread just complimented all the other ingredients in the meat mixture everything went well together. Will make again, and recommend to others too!!! Yummmy!!!

This turned out pretty good, in place of shortening in the main dish I used butter and used canned rotel tomatoes with herbs and seasonings. I did use fresh carrots and green beans that I sauted in butter before adding to dish. I did use butter flavored Crisco shortening for the puffs. This turned out really well and I will use again. Thanks for the post.

This dish was a little disappointing. The 'cheese puff' was more like a thick, orange biscuit and the mixture itself tasted a very odd. The mixture seemed a little salty and seemed to have a weird 'canned' flavor. The biggest disappointment was the cheese puff. It did not have much of a cheese flavor to it, as I had expected. I would definately add more cheese if you are going to try this recipe. Unfortunately, I will not be making this recipe again.

Not very good at all. I thought the biscuit puff would come out better for some reason. I'd have been better off with hamburger helper.

I did not care for this.
