  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 medium carrot chopped
  • 10 oz mushrooms cleaned and chopped (I used cremini mushrooms)
  • 1/2 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1/2 tsp pepper or to taste
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 package refrigerated biscuits such as Pillsbury
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter melted


  • Preheat your oven to 400 F degrees.
  • In a large skillet heat the olive oil then add the ground beef. Cook the beef until it's no longer pink, breaking it up as you go along.
  • Add the onion, garlic, carrot and cook for about 3 more minutes until the onion and carrots soften a bit. Stir in the mushrooms and cook for another 5 minutes, until the mushrooms cook down.
  • Season with salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, cinnamon, Worcestershire sauce and brown sugar. Stir in the tomato sauce and ketchup. Remove from heat.
  • Top with biscuits, as many as you can fit, probably about 7 or 8, then brush with the melted butter.
  • Bake for 15 minutes or until the biscuits are golden brown. Sprinkle the top of the biscuits with some pepper and/or parsley.
  • Serve warm. You can also serve this with some shredded cheddar cheese if preferred.



  1. You can use any type of ground meat for this recipe. I used extra lean ground beef, so I didn't have to drain any fat. If you use a fattier meat I would recommend draining the fat after the meat is cooked.
  2. I used Pillsbury refrigerated biscuits for this recipe. You can use any type you prefer, even home made.
  3. Store leftovers in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
  4. Please keep in mind that nutritional information is a rough estimate and can vary greatly based on products used.
