Preheat oven to 450°. Warm oil in a cast iron skillet, then cook celery and onion until soft. Add beef and brown. Add paprika, cook for 1 minute, then add remaining ingredients and cook until heated through.

Prepare biscuits: In bowl, mix dry ingredients, then cut in shortening. Stir in milk. (If you prefer more biscuits, increase all measurements by 1.5).
