Recipe Monday – Easy Meat Turnovers

This meatpie uses a homemade version of “manwich” which is so good, especially for kids!


2 lb ground beef (80/20)
1 1/2 large onions, chopped, about 2 cups total
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
2 Tbs fresh ground black pepper
2 1/2 cups ketchup
Kosher Salt to taste, about 1 tsp
Water – 1 to 1 1/2 cups

Biscuits in a can

Brown the ground beef until all the water is cooked out and only grease remains, then throw in the onions and cook until they just start to turn translucent.

Then add the garlic and onion powder, black pepper, ketchup and salt.

Combine well, then add water to almost cover the mixture. This helps absorb the meat absorb the flavors, and gives a good fine texture, instead of hard chewy lumps.

Cook over medium heat until moisture dissipates, stirring every 10 minutes or so, then turn to low.

Stretch out biscuits to make large round ‘pizza-dough’ like circles (I used two biscuits per circle.) Spoon four to five tablespoons of beef mixture into them, a little to one side. Fold the other side over and seal like you would a calzone.

Cook in 350 degree oven for 10 minutes, if that.
