Biscuit topped Beef Pots are the perfect meat dish for a week night dinner. Served with vegetables on the side, this is always a winner.
This recipe is also perfect to use cheaper cuts of beef – if you cook it right, any meat can be delicious! I always use Stewing Beef, the chunks of beef on the bone, when I make these Biscuit topped Beef pots.
You can also make one large pot (using a large pie dish), but I have found the smaller pots to be so much more fun, and it looks impressive, placed on a large plate surrounded with side vegetables or salads.
I prefer to cook the Beef in my pressure-cooker, it is fast and you get exactly the same results (using this recipe) as when you cook it in the slow-cooker.
If you are going to use your Slow-Cooker, set it on HIGH and cook for at least 6 hours – the meat must literally fall off the bones. (add more water if needed whilst cooking). I also check mine in the pressure cooker halfway through the cooking time.
