This has been a family favorite for over 100 years... with just a few ingredient updates... and canned beans vs dry beans... canned biscuits vs fresh homemade biscuits... Home made Bar- B- Que sauce vs bottled... It is good both ways..

How to Make Cowboy Beans N' Biscuits

Step-by-Step

  1. Brown the ground beef well in a large skillet over medium - high heat, add the minced onion and cook until onions are done (do not burn!)
  2. Add all remaining ingredients except the biscuits. Stir and heat well. *** Do Not Drain the beans!!!
  3. Pour this mixture into a large roast pan or baking pan.
  4. Open up the biscuits and put them on top of the bean and meat mixture. Brush (or spread) the tops of the biscuits with butter.
  5. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 - 30 minutes... or until biscuits are cooked through and golden brown.
  6. *** Sometimes we cover the bean and meat mixture with shredded cheddar cheese or sliced American cheese before adding the biscuits.
  7. *** The original recipe also called for salt pork or bacon... it is good with it or without it.

    *** The original recipe called for cubes of cut up beef.... we have made it this way too...
