Crock Pot Ground Beef & Biscuits

Last time we went to the library I checked out the Fix it and Forget it Cookbook. I went through and wrote down all the recipes that sounded good. This recipe was a little different. It was good but had a different taste to it. Not sure if it was the recipe itself or the fact that I used ground turkey instead of ground beef.

1 lb ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onions
2 tbsp flour
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp dried oregano
16 oz tomato sauce
2- 7.5 oz refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Brown ground beef and onions. Drain. Stir in flour, salt, pepper, oregano, and tomato sauce. Pour into crock pot. 

Sprinkle 1 cup of cheese on top then arrange biscuits on top. Cover with remaining cheese. Bake uncovered on high for 1-1 1/2 hours.

A few things for next time. I wouldn't use 2 tubes of biscuits. The ones in the middle were still doughy after I let it cook for almost 2 hours. I would just make a ring of biscuits around the outside instead. I also think this might taste better in a baking dish and baked in the oven. The biscuits just weren't cooked enough but some of the edge parts were burnt.
