Beef, Bean & Biscuit Bake

with Koss Sauce

Believe it or not, I don't always make everything from scratch. This Beef, Bean and Biscuit Bake is one of our families favorite almost homemade meals. This year I started making it with Koss Sauce and we really enjoy the update! Koss Sauce has just the right spice and sweet to make this hot dish really pop.
I like to make this in the winter because it's such a filling and comforting dish but don't let that stop you from making this anytime. It makes the house to smell like a sweet country barbecue.
I found the inspiration for this casserole many years ago in a magazine ad promoting specific brands of beans, barbecue sauce and biscuits, but over the years the recipe has evolved. I've added some sauteed onion and green bell pepper, changed the brand of baked beans and now I'm using Koss Sauce instead of doctoring up a store brand barbecue sauce. I love the blend of spices in this sauce and don't feel the need to change it up at all.
I often make this recipe with ground venison instead of beef. Koss Sauce is a wonderful condiment with venison as well. Just look at this venison tenderloin I made recently. It was amazing!

The one thing I've held to in this Beef, Bean & Biscuit Bake recipe is using a jumbo flaky refrigerator biscuit for the topping. Smaller biscuits that aren't the layered flaky ones just don't quite make it in this hot dish. They have a tendency to sink into the casserole and then not bake up light and fluffy.

I top the Beef, Bean & Biscuit Bake with a shredded cheddar and jack cheese blend and then bake it for 35 minutes at 350 degrees. When it comes out of the oven, I spray the top with a light spritz of spray olive oil then garnish with chopped parsley. 
I'm so glad I started making this recipe with Koss Sauce! Koss Sauce is a versatile barbecue sauce and so much more. It makes a great condiment for many things. I ordered some from them directly because it's not available yet in stores in Oregon but if you live in the eastern United States you may be able to find this in a store near you. I hope you'll give it a try.
Cheers!

Beef, Bean & Biscuit Bake

with Koss Sauce

Ingredients

1 pound ground beef or venison

1 large can Bush's Country Style Baked Beans

1 package jumbo flaky refrigerator biscuits like Pillsbury Grands

1 cup Koss Sauce

1/3 cup diced red onion

1/3 cup diced green bell pepper

2 tablespoons light brown sugar (optional)

1 1/4 cup shredded cheddar jack cheese blend

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1 teaspoon vegetable oil or butter

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley for garnish

Method

Preheat an oven to 350 degrees.

Heat a large skillet to medium then add a teaspoon of vegetable oil or butter. Saute the ground beef, the red onion and bell pepper until the beef is no longer pink. Season with the salt and pepper.

Add the Koss Sauce, the can of baked beans and mix well. Allow the beef and bean mixture to heat through. (about 5 minutes)

Spray a large deep casserole dish with spray oil then pour the hot beef and bean mixture into the dish and top with the biscuits as illustrated above, cutting them in half and arranging them around the top in a ring evenly.

Top the biscuits with the shredded cheese and bake for 35 minutes at 350 degrees.

Remove the casserole from the oven and tap the biscuits. They should sound hollow and not look doughy around the edges. 

Lightly mist the top of the biscuits with spray olive oil and garnish with chopped parsley to serve.

Enjoy!
