Total Time

“For a different taste, I sometimes add a little chili powder to the meat mixture and top this stew with a prepared cornbread mix,“ says Darlene Brenden, a field editor from Salem, Oregon.


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) stewed tomatoes, cut up
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen mixed vegetables
  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon prepared mustard
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided


  1. In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the tomatoes, mixed vegetables and tomato sauce.
  2. Transfer to a greased 11x7-in. baking dish. Cover and bake at 400° for 15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, for biscuits, in a small bowl, combine flour and baking powder. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in milk and mustard until mixture forms a soft dough. Add 6 tablespoons cheese.
  4. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto stew. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown; sprinkle with remaining cheese.
