  • Portion size 12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 onion diced
  • 1 sweet red pepper diced
  • 1 green pepper diced
  • 1 1/2 cup diced kielbasa (about 8 oz/225 g)
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 bottle strained tomato puree (passata)
  • 1/4 cup fancy molasses
  • 3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon dry mustard
  • 1 tablespoon wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 3 cans (each 540 mL) navy beans drained and rinsed
Biscuits:
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup cold butter cubed
  • 1 cup buttermilk (approx)
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded old Cheddar cheese

Method

In Dutch oven, heat oil over medium-high heat; saute onion, red pepper and kielbasa until vegetables are softened, about 5 minutes.

Add beef, chili powder, salt and pepper; cook, breaking up meat with back of spoon and stirring often, until meat is no longer pink, about 6 minutes.

Stir in tomato puree, 1/4 cup water, molasses, brown sugar, mustard and vinegar. Stir in beans; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered and stirring occasionally, until thickened, about 15 minutes. Pour into 13- x 9-inch (3 L) baking dish; place dish on rimmed baking sheet.

Biscuits: Meanwhile, in bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and cayenne pepper. Using pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in butter until crumbly. Drizzle in buttermilk, stirring just until soft sticky dough forms. Turn out onto floured surface; knead 6 times or just until smooth. Roll out into 10- x 8-inch (25 x 20 cm) rectangle; brush with 1 tbsp more buttermilk. Cut into 12 biscuits. Arrange over casserole; sprinkle with cheese.

Bake in 375°F (190°C) oven until bubbly and biscuits are golden brown and no longer doughy on bottom, about 35 minutes.
