BISCUIT TOPPED VEGETABLE BEEF CASSEROLE

1 cup chopped onions
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 lb ground beef
1/8 tsp pepper
1 1/2 cup tomato juice
3 stalks celery, chopped
2 carrots, diced
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup flour
1 tsp salt
1 can of refrigerated biscuits

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease a 2-quart casserole dish and set it aside.

Heat the oil in a large skillet; add the onions, ground beef, salt and pepper. Saute until the beef is browned and onion is tender. Drain excess fat from the skillet. Add the tomato juice, celery, carrots, ketchup, and flour. Cook, stirring, until the mixture thickens. Pour mixture into a lightly greased 2-quart casserole dish. Place the biscuits over the top of the mixture. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes.

I made a similar recipe but I used water and broth as the liquid. I did not think to try ketchup so I used tomato sauce leftovers. Have you tried it with chopped vegetable mix (frozen) if you are out of fresh carrots?
