Oriental Meat Pie

This was one of the first recipes I tried as a new bride, and we've come back to it again and again. It's really American cooking, not Oriental, but I guess Betty Crocker (I found it in my Dinner in a Dish Cookbook) decided on the title because of the soy sauce.

Oriental Meat Pie

1 pound ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 can (10.5 oz) cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup milk
2 teaspoons soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon salt, optional
1/2 cup sliced ripe olives
1/4 cup minced parsley
1/2 recipe of biscuit dough

Cook and stir ground beef and onion until browned; drain. (Or, which is what I do, take a package of wheat/meat out of the freezer and thaw it.) Stir in soup, milk, soy sauce, and salt; heat through. Stir in olives and parsley. Pour mixture into 8" square baking dish. Prepare biscuit dough and roll into a 7" square; cut into 1" strips. Place strips over meat mixture. (Or, just dollop the dough if you're feeling a touch lazy.) Bake 12-15 minutes at 450° or until golden. Serves 4.
