Author Marina


  • 1 lb ground meat/ minced meat You can use lamb, beef, chicken or turkey
  • 1 medium sized onion chopped fine
  • 1/2 inch fresh ginger chopped fine and crushed
  • 1/2 serrano pepper finely chopped (You can add less or more, based on how spicy you want this to be. This is optional and may be omitted if you prefer)
  • Cilantro leaves chopped- 1/2 cup
  • Juice from 1/2 a lemon
  • Freshly ground pepper to season
  • Salt to flavor- add as much as is required
  • Freshly chopped spinach and kale leaves- 2 cups optional
  • 3 tubes of Pillsbury Grands Jr. Buttermilk Biscuit dough or any other brand 10 per tube.
  • Olive oil- 2-3 tbsps


  1. In a saute pan, add olive oil and wait till the oil warms before you throw in the onions, ginger and serrano pepper
  2. Once the onions are golden brown, add the mince (and the greens if you choose to include the same) and season the mix with salt and pepper.
  3. Once the mince is cooked and completely dry, add the cilantro and lemon juice.
  4. Mix well and set aside to cool.
  5. Once the mince is cool, spoon a tablespoon or more into the center of an uncooked, flattened biscuit pocket.
  6. Now fold the dough on the sides to envelop the mince into a bun. Make sure there aren't any openings anywhere. The bun will crack open while baking, if so.
  7. Place the stuffed buns on the tray, leaving a 2 inch gap between each and bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 8-11 minutes.
  8. Once the buns are golden brown, take the same out of the oven and serve piping hot with a dash of ketchup.
