Barbecue Beef Bundles
3/4 pound lean (90%) ground beef
1 cup ketchup
2 teaspoons vinegar
3 tablespoons Pantry Barbecue Seasoning Mix
3 ounces cheddar cheese, grated, divided (3/4 cup)
1/2 cup green onions with tops, thinly sliced
1/2 cup red bell pepper, chopped
1 garlic clove, pressed
1 package (17.3 ounces) grand-size flaky or buttermilk biscuits (8 biscuits)
1 package (10.2 ounces) grand-size flaky or buttermilk biscuits (5 biscuits)
Cook ground beef in large (10-inch) skillet over medium heat 8-10 minutes or
until beef is no longer pink, breaking into crumbles; drain and set aside.
Preheat oven to 350° F. In small bowl, combine ketchup, vinegar and Seasoning
Mix; mix well and set aside.
Grate cheese. Slice green onions. Chop bell pepper. In a bowl, combine cooked
beef, 1/2 cup of the cheese, green onions, bell pepper, garlic pressed with
Garlic Press and half of the barbecue sauce; mix well.
Separate 12 biscuits and place on cutting board. (Discard remaining biscuit
or set aside for another use.) Using a roller, roll each biscuit into a 5-inch
disk, flouring dough as needed. Using a large scoop, divide beef mixture evenly
onto center of each biscuit.
Gather up edges of dough over filling, pinching lightly to seal. Place
biscuits, seam side down, into muffin pan. Do not press down into cup. Using
serrated bread knife, cut through top of each bundle, making a crisscross
Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven; sprinkle
remaining cheese evenly over bundles. Remove from pan to cooling rack. Serve
with remaining barbecue sauce.
