Beef and Vegetable Stew with Biscuit Topping

This delicious, saucy beef and vegetable stew is made better with biscuits baked right on top. Some call it a casserole, some call it a stew. Either way it’s comfort food.


I took the liberty of developing it for a traditional casserole vessel, or if you want, individual servings. They are just so cute individual!! (Tastes the same by the way, wink). You can cook this in a Dutch oven, or oven-proof soup pot. The method is braising, so the pot stays covered in the oven and the meat gets soft and tender. The perfect beef stew.
