Ingredients

Instructions

  • Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and cook ground beef, onion, garlic, kosher salt and pepper until beef is browned, stirring occasionally.
  • Stir in tomato sauce, brown sugar and Worcestershire and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 25 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Remove from heat and let mixture cool to room temperature, about 30 minutes. I recommend transferring mixture to a bowl to cool faster than keeping it in the skillet.
  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • On lightly floured surface, roll each biscuit dough into a 5 1/2″ diameter circle.
  • Arrange filling (about a heaping ¼ cup per pocket) in lower center of each dough circle to within 1-inch of edge.
  • Fold dough over filling to make a pocket and seal edges with fork.
  • Arrange pockets a baking sheet. Brush tops with melted butter and sprinkle with sesame seeds, if desired.
  • Bake 15-18 minutes or until golden and baked through.
