"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."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Worst creamed chipped beef I've ever had. Stick to the unsweetened, original version!!!
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.
this is not what I remember from the service. Yuck
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.

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.
Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
