Beef Stew and Biscuits

2 lbs stew beef, 4 carrots, 4 large potatoes, 1 large onion, seasonings of your choice (this had paprika, chili powder, salt, pepper and vinegar)
2 cups water cooked on high in a crock-pot for 4 to 6 hours. Cool over night. This will thicken the stew and bring out the flavor.

Put in a deep pie dish and layer biscuit dough on top. 2 cups flour, 1 tbls baking powder, 1 tsp. salt, 1 tbls sugar, 1/3 cup shortening or refined lard, and 1 cup of milk.

Cut the fat into the dry ingredients well using two table knives and then blend in the milk without stirring to much. Bake at 380 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes to allow stew to jell slightly before serving.
