BBQ Beef and Bean Biscuit Bake

What you need: 

1 lb burger-style crumbles (Gimmee Lean brand recommended)
1/2 cup diced onions
1 (21 oz) can vegetarian baked beans
1 cup catsup/ketchup
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoon vinegar (white)
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 cups vegan biscuit mix
1 cup grated vegan cheddar cheese
2/3 cup water

What you do: 

This was originally a microwave recipe but I don't like using the microwave to cook so I've adapted it.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In the meantime, fry the ground beef in a skillet over medium heat until browned (you may have to add a little oil to prevent sticking). Lower heat, add onions and fry until soft but not brown.
In a 3 qt. casserole dish combine vegan ground beef, onions, baked beans, catsup, vegan brown sugar, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper. Stir well. Put mixture in oven.
While that's in the oven, combine biscuit mix, vegan cheese, and water in a bowl. Stir to combine.
When your beef and bean mixture gets hot and bubbly in the oven, take it out. Drop your biscuit batter (about 1/3 of a cup at a time) onto the beef and bean mix at random. Turn each biscuit over once before putting it back into the oven (I don't know what this does but trust me).
Cover with wax paper and continue to cook another 5-10 minutes. I just lift the wax paper once in awhile and eyeball it to make sure the biscuits are cooked (they don't take long to cook). You can't really screw this one up!
NOTE: Last time I made this I thought to myself, This probably doesn't need the vegan brown sugar, but I haven't made it yet without it so its up to your discretion. If you don't like things real sweet you may want to leave it out.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

I used RedMill Corn Bread mix instead of the biscuit mix, but it was very good!

This made quite the delicious comfort meal. I left out the vegan cheese and didn't miss it. I had a hard time getting the biscuits all the way done in the middle, but it wasn't a huge problem. I would probably reduce the ketchup next time, it was a bit too much. It makes me want to go camping for some reason.

Does anyone have a good suggestion for a vegan Worcestershire sauce?  I have a recipe for one that's not great, and it would be nice to just buy a bottle and have it handy for recipes such as this 8-)

They sell vegan Worcestershire at Whole Foods. I don't know the brand name offhand, but its in a purple bottle and has a wizard on the front.

This was really tasty!  I used the biscuit recipe from vegweb's biscuits and gravy, and they were sort of gooey with the cheese in there... I think I will leave the cheese out next time, OR put the cheese on the 'meat'/bean mix, under biscuits.  Otherwise, the flavor was divine.  I skipped the Worcestershire sauce and added some hickory flavor.  I will make this again though-- my husband was a big fan of it.  :)

A very hearty meal indeed. I just used biscuits-in-a-tube and topped with cheese slices. The biscuits took three times longer than usual to bake, but they turned out well.

this was really, really good! i made my own biscuit mix (2 cups flour + 3 tsp Baking Powder and a pinch of salt), used tomato paste instead of ketchup. i doubled the onions and added some balsamic vinegar. I had to cook it a little longer after i added the biscuits because after ten minutes they were still kinda gooey. my omni sister gobbled this up!

This was a very interesting recipe and nicely filling. I think I might leave out the Worchesire sauce next time but the overall experience was quite tasty!
