Serves: 4
Unit converter


1 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef (453.5 g)
4 medium green onions, chopped (1/4 cup) (26 g)
1 cup water (237 ml)
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt (1.5 g)
1 package (0.87 oz) onion gravy mix (28.3 g)
2 cups frozen potatoes O'Brien with onions and peppers (from 24-oz bag) (256 g)
1/2 cup frozen baby sweet peas (64 g)
1 large tomato, chopped (1 cup) (200 g)
1 1/2 cups Original Bisquick™ mix ** (192 g)
1/2 cup water (118 g)

** See our homemade Bisquick Mix here.


1 In a 10-inch skillet, cook beef over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until brown; drain. Stir in 2 tablespoons of the onions, 1 cup water, the garlic salt and gravy mix (dry). Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens. Stir in potatoes, peas and tomato. Heat until hot; reduce heat to medium-low.

2 In a small bowl, stir the Bisquick mix, remaining 2 tablespoons of onions and 1/2 cup water until soft dough forms. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls (see tips) onto beef mixture.

3 Cover; cook for 8 minutes. Uncover; cook 8 to 10 minutes longer or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the dumplings comes out clean.


When making dumplings, a great way to drop the dough is to use a small cookie-dough scoop, quickly scooping dough and dropping onto the beef mixture.
