Very good and easy. I substituted lb of brisket, and carved corn off of 2 fresh ears, also drained the beans, as I had the brisket floating in meat juice. It needed salt in our opinion, but was very quick and easy.

This was good but I drained my beans and my corn before adding. We thought this was good but could have used some salt and pepper. Made for Spring PAC 2011.

I used the ground beef for this recipe and like the other reviewers did think it needed some seasoning. Added lemon pepper, black pepper, kosher salt, and some garlic powder to the mixture before adding the biscuit mix. Had leftovers for the next night and the flavors really came together then. Made and reviewed for Pick A Chef - Fall 2012.
