Preheat a large saucepan or frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook the beef and onions with the poultry seasoning or sage, fennel seeds, coriander, salt and pepper for 5-6 minutes or until no longer pink and the onions are translucent.

Remove meat and onions with a slotted spatula or spoon, leaving the drippings in the pan. Bring pan up to medium heat; melt butter. Whisk in flour. Slowly whisk in milk, continuously stirring. Add the Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco or cayenne, salt and pepper; cook another 1 minute.

To plate, cut each biscuit in half (horizontally), place 2 biscuits on 4 serving plates. Top each with some of the beef and onion mixture. Top with a serving of the gravy. Serve immediately.
