1/2 lb. (93%) lean ground beef
2 tsp. olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
2 celery stalks, diced
1 med. red bell pepper, seeded, cored, and diced
1 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
1 can (14 oz.) low-fat, reduced-sodium beef broth
1/2 cup prepared barbecue sauce
1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
Kosher salt and fresh-ground black pepper to taste
Biscuit Crust
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2tsp.baking soda
2Tbsp.minced fresh parsley
1/2cuplow-fat buttermilk
2Tbsp.olive oil


  1. Add the ground beef to a large skillet over medium-high heat, and cook until browned, about 3 to 4 minutes. Add to a colander to drain off excess juices.
  2. Meanwhile, add the olive oil to the skillet. Sauté the onion, celery, and red pepper for about 8 to 9 minutes, until soft and lightly browned. Add the flour, and sauté for 1 minute. Add the broth, barbecue sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and beef. Cook over medium heat for 10 minutes, or until thickened. Season with salt and pepper. Add the mixture to a 9-inch deep-dish pie pan. Set aside.
  3. Preheat the oven to 450°F.
  4. To make the crust: In a medium bowl, combine the flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and parsley. In a small cup, mix together the buttermilk and olive oil. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture, and pour in the buttermilk-oil mixture. Stir with a fork. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface, and knead about 7 to 8 times. Using a floured rolling pin, roll the dough out into a large circle. Cut the dough into 8 triangles.
  5. Lay the biscuit dough on top of the hamburger mixture. Bake the casserole for about 20 to 25 minutes until the biscuits are brown and the casserole is bubbly.
