Some dishes bring you right back to your childhood. When I was a kid, we occasionally would have for lunch a dish which we termed “Beef and Biscuits”. There is several ways to make the dish: the hard way or the easy way. The hard way includes making a beef roast and biscuit dough. I can’t say that I recall we ever did it the hard way. The easy way uses canned biscuit dough and canned roast beef. Canned roast beef is increasingly hard to find though.
A nice little biscuit cup with beef and cheese. Yum!
The recipe I knew as a kid didn’t use shredded cheese. Instead, a slice of cheese was placed over the top. By doing that you had both a nice melt over the top and also trapped thousand degree heat in the meat mixture, ensuring a mouth burn every time. As a teen, I subbed in the shredded cheese instead and it has stayed ever since.
If you use canned roast beef, drain the gravy from it. If you use leftover roast beef, even better.
Shred the beef with a fork.
Add the chili sauce (it is not hot at all) and the cheese.
Spray the muffin tin with non-stick spray and place a biscuit dough round in each cup. Using your fingers and thumbs make a pocket of the dough and spread the dough up the sides of the muffin cup.
Fill with the beef mixture.
Beautiful and a great tasting lunch. I have also made mini ones for appetizers.
