I watched a video on the Food Network by Paula Deen for this recipe. But when I searched the recipes for this it was different than what she did in the video. So here is my guess at the amounts she used in the video.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 small onion, peeled and chopped
  • 6 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 12 lbs pot roast, cubed (leftover)
  • 34 cup gravy, leftover
  • salt and black pepper
  • 3 cups mashed potatoes, leftover
  • 1 12 cups milk
  • 2 cups biscuit mix, instant
  • 1 12 cups corn, prepared according to package directions (or mixed vegetables)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Beef Layer:.
  3. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, saute onion in 2 tablespoons butter. Add beef and cook until browned, add the gravy to heat up. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Set aside.
  4. Biscuit Layer:.
  5. Combine biscuit mix and 1 1/2 cups of milk. The mix should be thinner than that of normal biscuit mix but not runny.
  6. Spray a 9 by 9 by 2-inch pan (or any similar casserole dish) with cooking spray. Layer mashed potatoes halfway up the sides of the dish. Next, spread a layer of corn or mixed vegetables on top of the potatoes. Then add the layer of meat and gravy. Pour the biscuit mix over the meat. Melt 4 tablespoons of butter and drizzle over top. Bake for approximately 35 to 45 minutes or until top is golden brown. Let stand for a few minutes before serving.

This is the 2nd time in a week I've made this recipe! I cook a large roast in the crock pot and split it up for 2 meals. I do not use as much butter as this calls for. But, it still comes out great.

I made this tonight using leftover pulled beef with mixed veggies. I lowered the fat somewhat by skipping the butter cooking of the onions and just cooking them in the water in the water I needed for the gravy (when the onion was almost tender I added the frozen veggies into the same pot. To that pot I then added the beef and some brown gravy mix as I didn't have any from the cooked beef. For the biscuit topping I used Recipe#55564 (the only thing I made biscuits with anymore!) made up with fat free milk. I cooked the spuds earlier in the day and with that it all came together very quickly indeed. My 4 serving size was beautifully done in 35 mins. Thanks Diner for a real hubby pleaser!
