Putting barbecue sauced ground beef, cheese, and biscuits together in a muffin tin makes an easy alternative to a traditional sloppy beef sandwich. However, these barbecue beef muffins are easy to store, transport, and reheat making them a great item for next day lunches.
The original recipe was in one of my compilation cookbooks. After making it once as written, I noticed that I ended up with a lot of leftover barbecued ground beef. I recommend using two tubes of biscuits if using a pound of ground beef or just use less ground beef. If you use 3/4 of a pound of ground beef, you do not have to make any adjustments in the measurement of other ingredients. If you are making less than 3/4 pound of ground beef, you best be served by proportionally reducing the sauce ingredients. If using the large muffin tins/large biscuits, 3/4 or 1 pound of meat will make just the 10 biscuits…you may get another 5 if using 1 pound.
I did make a few other changes to the recipe by adding other ingredients that I would use in barbecue sauce. If you want the more simplified original version just omit the honey (use more brown sugar instead), onion powder, and Worcestershire sauce.
