Beef Cobbler

March 19, 2018Teresa

Beef Cobbler is one of those comfort foods I absolutely love. I can eat this every day during the fall and winter. I love Beef Pot Pie, Chicken Pot Pie or Chicken Cobbler. Anything with rich, creamy gravies mixed with vegetables and meat and then topped with biscuits is terrific in my eyes. 🙂

This is the tale of a colossal fail and a fantastic success. I tried to make the first version with gluten free biscuits. However, they ended up tough and it just wasn’t what I was hoping for. I served it for our Friday night care group, and was so saddened when it didn’t turn out as well as I would have liked. But thankfully, someone else had brought Chicken Tortilla Soup that night so we didn’t go hungry!

So I scrapped the idea of going gluten free 🙁  .  In my second try, I made regular drop biscuits that were amped up with cheese and seasonings. I also eliminated some of the ingredients I had used in the filling part of the first version that were similar to my Chicken Cobbler recipe. The addition of cream just didn’t work with beef. I took out a few things and added a few things. 🙂

My second version of this recipe turned out a lot better than the first! This time the recipe came together like clockwork and turned out great. While I don’t eat a lot of gluten these days, I do splurge every now and then. This was one of those occasions when I splurged.

I had made Prime Rib Roast for Thanksgiving and again in December last year. I had some leftover meat that I needed to use up and that’s when this recipe was born. I seasoned the beef filling with some of my favorite herbs: thyme, marjoram and parsley. Then added Liquid Smoke to give it that kick it needed. I tossed in lots of veggies like carrots, peas, bell peppers, onion, garlic, leeks and celery to provide flavor and vitamins. I topped it all with melt-in-your-mouth cheesy biscuits. (Yes, I was in seventh heaven).

The second result was succulent and sumptuous. It was certainly perfect comfort food this time of the year. If you’re looking for your version of comfort food, then give Beef Cobbler a try. The biscuits alone are worth a try. 🙂  I found this entree so hearty, filling and totally satisfying. (Sigh.) I think it’s time for another round. 🙂

This biscuits are amazing too. They’re filled with cheddar cheese, garlic powder, thyme, parsley and chives. The amped up flavors turn dull, lifeless biscuits into sensational!

Here’s what I did.

I used these ingredients to make the beef filling. The mason jar contains pink Himalayan sea salt. The measuring cup contains unbleached flour.

Melt butter in a large enameled cast iron Dutch Oven. (I love enameled cast iron. It’s my favorite surface to cook in.) Add carrots, celery, onions, red bell pepper, leeks and garlic.

Place biscuit mixture on top of beef filling. I actually had enough biscuit mixture to make 14 biscuits so I cooked the other two biscuits separately.

Bake at 400 degrees for 18-23 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown and cooked through. I insert a toothpick in one down to the bottom of the biscuit to see if the dough is cooked through or still doughy.

Recipe Notes

NOTE: Your biscuits may take longer to cook if you have a slower oven.

NOTE: Insert a toothpick down to the bottom of the biscuit to check doneness. If biscuit seems doughy, cook longer.

NOTE:I think I used self-rising flour when I made this the first time and that's why I didn't include baking powder in the recipe. Unless you use self-rising flour you will need to add two teaspoons baking powder for the biscuits to raise properly.

    I wish you would just give the recipe and stop the bla. Bla Bla, It gets really tiresome just to find the recipes!!

      Sorry, you don’t like my format. Perhaps you haven’t visited many food blogs. I’ve been on hundreds, and without exception, all of them have their recipes at the very bottom of the page. Enjoy the recipe!

    Biscuits are terrible. Against my better judgement I didn’t add baking powder and I should have. Hockey pucks on top of a great tasting beef/veggie base were not great. I will try again, but I will make the biscuits more like baking powder biscuits.

    Are you sure you don’t need baking powder in the biscuits? I’ve not heard of biscuits that don’t.

      Hi Lee. I know it sounds crazy but I’m pretty sure I didn’t use it. But if you feel better about it, you can always add a teaspoon or two to the batter.

    I’m making this tonight, and I just realized that the recipe doesn’t specify how much beef broth. The whole container?

      March 29, 2018 at 6:34 am

      Hi, Jill. I am so sorry I didn’t see this before you made it. The recipe uses 16-ounces of beef broth. I’ve corrected the recipe now. Thanks for catching this error. Again, I’m sorry and I hope yours turned out okay.
