Easy recipes for a busy life

BBQ Beef Cups!

on January 29, 2013

I was looking for an easy recipe tonight since school is so busy and a few months ago i found this one that I just love! I would describe this recipe as like sloppy joes. You can find the recipe here:

BBQ Beef Cups:

2 pounds lean ground beef

1 cup bbq sauce

half of a white onion chopped 

2 packages refrigerated biscuit dough ( i used original Pillsbury) 

2/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese.

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease the cups of a muffin pan.

2.In a large heavy skillet over medium heat, cook beef until evenly brown. Drain excess fat. Stir in barbecue sauce and dried onion. I also add a little bit of cheese into the mix.  Simmer for a few minutes over low heat.



3 Flatten each biscuit, and press into cups of the prepared muffin pan. Make sure the dough comes to the top of the pan. Spoon a portion of the meat mixture into each dough cup. I personally cook the biscuits alone in the tins for 3 minutes so they can set up. 



4. Bake in preheated oven for 12 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese, and bake for 3 more minutes. 



This is a really easy recipe and you can experiment with it and make it just the way you like it. I always add a little bit of garlic and cook a little longer than directed. I serve it with a simple green salad.
