Sloppy Joe Biscuits With Roasted Broccolini


Tangy Sloppy Joe filling heaped atop a flaky biscuit? Yes please. This family-friendly dinner packs flavor and sneaks some veggies in, too. There’s bell pepper in the beef filling and crispy roasted broccolini alongside. You can substitute regular broccoli for the broccolini if you can’t find it or if picky eaters will be wary. Ground round has 80% lean meat and 20% fat, a great ratio for juicy, tender beef. If you have the time (and a favorite recipe) homemade biscuits would work well here. Serve with extra napkins—it’s a delightfully hands-on meal!

  • 1 16-oz. can refrigerated large biscuits

  • 2 bunches Broccolini, ends trimmed

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 ¼ teaspoon kosher salt, divided

  • ¾ teaspoon black pepper, divided

  • 1 pound ground beef

  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped

  • 1 small green bell pepper, chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped

  • 1 15-oz. can tomato sauce

  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar

  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 ½ teaspoons red wine vinegar

  1. Bake biscuits according to package directions.

  2. Adjust oven temperature to 425°F. Toss Broccolini with oil, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper on a rimmed baking sheet. Roast until tender, 20 to 22 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium-high.
