How to Make Sloppy Joe Biscuit Cups

This dish is super easy to make with only a few simple ingredients. In a large skillet, cook lean ground beef over medium-high heat. Drain excess grease. Add ketchup, sugar, yellow mustard, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, and onions to the skillet. Stir well. Cook over low heat for 10 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened. Season with salt and black pepper.

Open a can of refrigerated biscuits. Separate biscuit dough into 10 biscuits; place each biscuit in a regular-size muffin tin that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Using a rolling pin, roll each biscuit into a large circle. Firmly press dough in the bottom and up the side of each muffin cup.

Spoon the meat mixture into the biscuit cups. Top each biscuit with grated cheese. Bake in a preheated oven until the biscuits are golden brown. Sprinkle with dried parsley.

  1. These are delicious!! Ive made them several times now and like many of your other recipes they will be made many more!!!

  2. Awesome idea! I make my Sloppy Joe's with hot Mexican chorizo (Chorizo Joe's!). Think I'll try your recipe with chorizo. Thanks for the post.

  3. I am making these tonight. I have never made my own sloppy 'jo sauce. I hope it is sweet and tangy as it looks! This is my 3rd recipe I will be trying from Plain Chicken and I have yet to be disappointed! Thanks!

  4. My boys are pretty much all grown now, but I know they'd love these. I used to make a lot of Bisquick Impossible Pies and this reminds me of one. So not on my diet, so I'm going to ease away from the monitor… 🙂

  5. I made this last night, another hit! I did find they worked better using the jumbo biscuits in a larger muffin tin, those came out perfectly without greasing the pan. The smaller one did bubble over a bit but after soaking the muffin tin over night it was clean. I'm not even a big fan of sloppy joes but I loved this, the flavor was much better than the stuff that comes out of a can! And it feels better to know exactly what's going in it!

  6. Eek…sorry everyone, but these were disgusting and they ruined my muffin pan. The "sauce" was not moist enough, and by the time it was done simmering according to the directions, it was already dry. Once it went into the oven according to directions, the biscuits ended up extremely dry and the beef, well, it was like sandpaper. The smell of the sauce was disgusting enough, but the taste? AWFUL! I should have known better than to EVER put anything into my muffin pan without being greased first. Even my kids wouldn't touch it.

  7. I have ground beef in my fridge that must be cooked off for dinner tonight. I was completely lacking in inspiration. So I came to your blog knowing you would have something fabulous and yummy and with ingredients I already had in my kitchen! Thanks for all you do Steph- you saved dinner once again 🙂

  8. I made these last night for dinner after seeing them on your blog and they turned out fantastic! Everyone loved them and they were SO EASY! Thank you so much for posting the idea! I enjoy reading your blog each day and finding new dinner ideas 🙂

  9. My grandson is spending the night with us tonight. I bet he'd love this. Thanks for the idea!

  10. We haven't had Sloppy Joes in a long time, and these look delicious. Might be what's for dinner tonight (if I have biscuits).

  11. Love it! Husband loves them and I find them too messy. I have everything I need to make these tonight. Best thing is they aren't complicated!

  12. Hmmm, this biscuit cup idea gives me a notion to try the cinnamon rolls with bacon or sausage in it.
