Original Recipe HERE
This is a rare recipe that got rave reviews from *J*. He ate two of them and asked for a third, and the following night he was even excited about leftovers. The others liked them, too, but I barely paid attention to their reactions because I was busy picking my jaw up off the floor.
I made the from-scratch sloppy joe mixture since cracking open a can of the stuff would resurrect childhood memories better left in the past. I used Pillsbury Grands buttermilk biscuits, and the ratio of biscuit to joe wasn't balanced. Next time I'll use smaller biscuits or maybe the flaky kind.
3 Tablespoons brown sugar
1 Tablespoon minced onion
1 Tablespoon paprika [I did 1/2 smoked and 1/2 regular]
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 pound ground beef
1 can (15 oz) tomato sauce
6 to 8 ounces water
1 Tablespoon mustard
2 Tablespoons cider vinegar
2 canisters (8 or 10 count each) canned biscuits
1 to 2 cups shredded cheese [I used cheddar]
(1) Mix together brown sugar, minced onion, cumin, paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
(2) In a large skillet, brown the beef.
(3) Add tomato sauce, 6-8 ounces of water, mustard, cider vinegar, and spice mixture. Stir to combine; simmer 5-10 minutes.
(4) Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease muffin tins.
(5) Flatten or roll out biscuits. Press each into a muffin well.
(6) Fill biscuits with sloppy joe mixture; sprinkle with cheese.
(7) Bake 10-12 minutes.
