No reviews


  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 2/3 cup biscuit mix
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 1/4 frozen cup mixed vegetables (I used soup vegetables because I like the mixture a little better)
  • 1 1/4 cup frozen peas and carrots
  • 1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Divide the ground beef and roll into about 16 meatballs and then in a large skillet using the cooking oil brown the meatballs on all sides. (drain if needed)
  2. While the meatballs are cooking in a medium size bowl mix together the biscuit mix and milk until thoroughly combined; set aside.
  3. Spread the browned meatballs out to the edge of the ban and put the mixed vegetables in the center. Add the soup, and the water; cover and cook over medium-high heat for 1 minute.
  4. Sprinkle the peas and carrots over the mixture and season with the salts. Divide the biscuit dough, using a large spoon, into 6 dumplings arranging them on top of the stew mixture. Cover and cook at a high simmer until meatballs and dumplings are done. (15 – 20 minutes)
  5. Serve hot.
