  • 1 lb lean ground beef or ground turkey
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 2 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 1 cup chopped mushrooms I used white mushrooms
  • 1 cup ketchup and maybe a teeny bit more to taste
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon brown rice vinegar
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons prepared mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • Season with salt if needed
  • 2 cans Pillsbury® Grands!® Homestyle refrigerated buttermilk biscuits Makes 10 biscuits
  • 1 cup shredded pepper Jack or Cheddar cheese or more. I say, go crazy with the cheese!


  • Heat oven to 375°F.
  • In 10-inch skillet or wok, cook ground beef until browned. (Drain if needed; if you get really lean ground beef, you won't need to).
  • Add onion, mushrooms, garlic and bell pepper over medium-high heat until everything is thoroughly cooked; drain.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Stir in ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, mustard, pepper and brown sugar.
  • Season with ground cloves and salt. Mix.
  • Separate dough into 10 biscuits; place each biscuit in an un-greased regular-size muffin pan.
  • Firmly press dough in bottom and up side of each cup, forming 1/4-inch rim. If desired, brush tops and sides of biscuits with an egg wash before baking. To make the egg wash, beat 1 egg yolk and 1/4 teaspoon water until well blended. (I did not do this.)
  • Spoon about 1/3 cup (or more) beef mixture into dough-lined cups.
  • Sprinkle each biscuit with 1 tablespoon of shredded cheese.
  • Bake for about 17 to 20 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown and cheese is melted.
  • I know it'll be hard, but wait for these to cool completely before removing from your muffin pan.
