Good, True and Beautiful BBQ Beef Cups

"In their labors they will have to avail themselves of those forces which are capable of cultivating the good, the true and the beautiful in humanity itself." - Albert Einstein

These cups represent the pinnacle of comfort food achievement. If the words Good, True and Beautiful can be used in relation to food (especially comfort food), then these little pockets of goodness have more than qualified.

  • 2 lbs. ground beef
  • 1 16-oz. jar thin BBQ sauce
  • 4 tbsp. minced onion
  • 1 large finely chopped bell pepper
  • 2-3 rolls of Pillsbury refrigerator biscuits (8 slices per roll)
  • Shredded cheddar cheese
In a saucepan, brown the ground beef and add the bell pepper and minced onion while cooking. When beef is brown, add the BBQ sauce, mix and let simmer for 15 - 20 minutes.
Unwrap the refrigerator biscuits. Flatten one round of dough between the palms of your hands, just until it will fill one cup of a muffin tin, with the edge of the dough just coming out over the edge of the cup. Repeat will all remaining dough rounds in as many muffin tins as you need. When the beef has finished simmering, spoon just enough of the mixture into the cups to lay flat with the top of the cup, not heaped. Bake according to biscuit package instructions.
Once baked, leaving the oven on, lay a solid layer of shredded cheese on the top of each cup. Replace muffin tins in the oven for 5 minutes, until cheese has melted thoroughly.
