Creamed Chipped Beef

Recipe by  

"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."

This recipe was horrible! I have a recipe I have been using for the 28 yrs my husband (a retired Marine) and I have been married. This is a dish that dependent wives always learn. I tried it because I wanted to try something different. My word, I don't know how this made it onto allrecipes. Do they test the recipes first? I will definitely stick to my old recipe.

In my experience, the appropriate ratio of flour/butter/milk to get a creamy consistency rather than *paste* should be 3 tablespoons butter, 3 tablespoons flour and 2 cups milk. And I don't know why I thought adding sugar would be a good idea to try! I always put the beef in a colander and rinse with hot water before adding to the gravy, it cuts the salt a bit. Add some black pepper and that's all the seasoning you need. I'll stick to my tried and true SOS recipe from now on thanks.

My husband and I love this recipe, but I do not add any sugar and I use a lot less flour and we serve it over english muffins. Yummmm!

Too much work & fat. The easy way we do this is buy the canned or packaged chipped beef in the grocery store...cut to your desired size and add the beef to a can of creme of mushroom soup (using one can of milk to make the soup). Simple, easy, heat it up and serve over toast or english muffins.

I have made Creamed Chipped Beef for years and thought I would try this version, too much flour per amount of milk, brown sugar was not a hit with us. Will stick with just making a cream gravy with the beef adding a touch of garlic powder.

This recipe did not work for me at all - I had to add about 10 times the amount of milk it called for just to make it a consistency other than glue.
