As a Marine aboard the USS Henrico on my way to Viet Nam, I had the pleasure of eating Navy Chow. This dish above all was my favorite. I haven't had this for over 44 years and now I've found it again. Now if my house could start rocking back and forth, I'll enjoy it more. Thank you for the memories.

A nice meal when the funds are low. The flavor was sweet, but it was a perfect dish on a day where it is -35 degrees below zero. I put a slice of swiss cheese on my toast and piled it with the meat. Pretty greasy, but it worked. Thanks for the recipe.

One of the few dishes in the Navy I could keep down. Served at most of my commands every Sunday for brunch!

We called the stuff "s*** on a shingle" but we sure ate it. This recipe eats better than I recall the original did. The hungrier you are, the better it tastes.

This definitely brought back memories of my Navy days and breakfast aboard the ships on which I served! When I first saw the stuff on the serving line, I thought it a bit strange to have for breakfast, but I quickly came to like it. Minced beef on toast, a couple eggs, a big glass of OJ, and a cup of good old Navy coffee made a great hearty breakfast. Yummy!

if you don't have nutmeg you can use mace as an acceptable substitute. We use to use both spices when we made it just used 1/2 the amt for each one. if you don't have diced tomatoes use whole tomatoes and crush them before adding them to the mix if you do this cut back on the tomato juice since whole tomatoes will ad more juice and it will be waterery
