Recipe Servings



2 cups flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

2 teaspoons sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted Darigold butter

2/3 cup Darigold milk


1 pound seasoned ground pork (no links)

1/2 medium onion, minced

1/3 cup flour (2 oz.) plus additional if needed

1 1/2 - 2 cups Darigold milk

5 sprigs of thyme

1 bay leaf

Kosher salt and pepper to taste



Preheat oven to 425°F. Stir together flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and cream of tartar in a mixing bowl. Cut butter into the dry ingredients with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Make a well in the center; add milk all at once. Stir just until dough clings together. Do not overmix.

Place dough on a lightly-floured surface. Knead by folding dough in half and pressing gently with heel of palm; repeat process nine more times.

Roll or pat dough to 1/2” thickness. Cut with a 2 1/2” biscuit cutter, dipping in flour between cuts.

Transfer biscuits to a baking sheet and bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden.


Sauté ground pork and onion in a medium-size saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook until browned and the onion is translucent. Sprinkle flour into the mixture.

Stir to blend, adding more flour to absorb all the fat if necessary. Add 1 1/2 cups milk and stir; add more milk as needed, stirring to prevent lumps.  Add the bay leaf and thyme; simmer gently for 15 to 20 minutes. Remove the bay leaf and thyme; season with salt and pepper.
