- 1 pound lean ground beef
- 1 envelope onion soup mix
- 1 tablespoon flour
- 1 (12-ounce) can 2% evaporated milk
- 1 cup frozen corn
- 2 tablespoons chopped red pepper or canned pimento, optional

In a large skillet over medium high heat, brown beef for 5 minutes, drain off any juices and return meat to the pan and add soup mix and flour, stirring for another 3 4 minutes until meat is browned. Add milk and stir over heat until mixture has thickened, about 2 minutes.
Place frozen corn into a sieve and run water over it to thaw, then dry on paper towels. Stir into the meat mixture, adding the pimento if using. Set aside but keep warm.
In a large bowl mix 3 cups of the biscuit mix with all but 1 tablespoon of the milk set that extra milk aside. Stir mix and milk together to make a sticky dough. Sprinkle work surface with the additional 2 tablespoons biscuit mix and turn dough out on it. Knead and fold together about 8 times until a smooth dough forms. Pat or roll it into a 9 inch square and cut into 9 equal pieces.
Spoon the warm meat mixture into the bake pan and top with the dough. Brush tops with the reserved milk and bake for about 25 minutes until golden brown.
