1 can Pillsbury Grands Biscuits
1/2 lb. ground beef
2 stalks celery
1 carrot
1 onion
2 cloves garlic
3 tablespoons brown curry
1 tablespoon sugar
dash vegetable oil
1/4 cup water
salt and pepper to taste

Peel and finely chop carrot, celery and onion.
In a large skillet, warm oil and add chopped vegetables, minced garlic, and salt and pepper.

Cook until vegetables are done, then add ground beef, curry, water and sugar. Cook until beef is completely done and all meat and veggies are tender.

One at a time, spread each biscuit into a 6 inch diameter thin circle of dough. Place a portion of meat in the middle of a stretched out dough circle, then fold over, enclosing meat within the biscuit and creating a half moon pocket filled with meat. Close by pressing together using a fork to seal. Continue until all biscuits are used.

Bake on ungreased an cooking sheet for about 15 minutes, until golden brown.
