My stove and pots and pans getting a workout....
1 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp sugar
almost 1/2 cup butter or shortening
1/4 cup milk or enough to hold the mixture together.
You just mix all dry ingredients, cut in the butter and then add the milk. Work this dough enough so it holds together, add more flour if you need to, and then gently place on top of the meat. You can also put it in a separate plate to bake if you want to take your meat out to rest. I usually up the oven temperature to 400 degrees for the crust to bake.
As you can see from my photo, mine rose and fell down the sides of the roast but that's okay, it still tasted fine. Hubby really likes this, I think because he loves anything the word biscuit can be applied to.
