A "one-dish" meal that can satisfy a big appetite. I got this from a friend who copied it from "some cookbook, somewhere, a few years ago".

Good! I've been on a mission to use a bunch of homemade plum jam and have had my eye on this recipe. It's different but very tasty. Perfect for a cold day. My whole family, including 3 red meat-loving boys, enjoyed it. Used 2 1/4 lb. stew meat cut into 1-inch pieces. I did include the onions, and there are a lot of them. Just a word of caution if onions aren't your thing. They did add quite a bit of flavor. My 9 biscuits were thinner than the recipe suggested and 22 minutes was too long so I'll watch that more closely next time. Also add a bit of salt to the meat mixture. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
