Cook this hearty stew on the stove until it's ready for the biscuit that bakes in the oven. It's the easiest stew you'll ever bake!
Updated May 5, 2010

Ingredients

  • 1 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 can (28 oz) Muir Glen™ organic diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 can (6 oz) Muir Glen™ organic tomato paste
  • 1 bag (16 oz) frozen vegetables
  • 2 1/4 cups Original Bisquick™ mix
  • 2/3 cup milk

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 425°F. In ovenproof Dutch oven, cook beef over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until brown; drain. Stir in water, tomatoes, tomato paste and vegetables. Heat to full boil, stirring occasionally; remove from heat.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, stir Bisquick mix and milk until soft dough forms. Drop by 6 spoonfuls onto beef mixture.
  • 3
    Bake uncovered 20 to 25 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown and stew is bubbly.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    For 315 calories and 5 grams of fat per serving, use Reduced Fat Bisquick mix instead of Original Bisquick mix and substitute ground turkey breast for the ground beef.
  • tip 2
    Accompany this hearty, homespun dinner with a crisp green salad topped with raisins and sunflower nuts and, for dessert, warm chocolate chip cookies.
  • tip 3
    Got the urge to add herbs? Make herb biscuits by adding 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning to the Bisquick mix before adding milk.
  • tip 4
    Vary the flavors in this stew by using different types of diced tomatoes and frozen vegetables. If you're using Italian-style tomatoes, add 1/2 teaspoon dried basil leaves with the Bisquick mix.
