Creamed Chipped Beef

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Creamed chipped beef served on buttered toast --- a great breakfast! This is affectionately known in the military as SOS, "$#@& on a shingle." You may vary ingredients to suit your taste. Don't over thicken the gravy, it should drop off the spoon.

INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):


  • In a skillet or saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Drop beef into hot butter; saute for 5 minutes. Sprinkle sugar over beef, stirring constantly. Sprinkle on flour, stirring constantly. When flour is completely mixed in, gradually add the milk, stirring constantly.
  • Keep stirring the sauce until it thickens. Lightly butter toasted bread. Spoon beef over slices of bread and serve.
