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.
This is not bad, but like Smokin'Chris, I never ate this in the U.S. Navy. They used dried been and it was mixed in a white sauce (SOS). Someone complained about the navy food, saying this was the only dish they could "choke down". Actually the food was very good and I never really saw anyone complain either.
One of the few dishes in the Navy I could keep down. Served at most of my commands every Sunday for brunch!
i've been looking for this recipe for over 40yrs. many thanks!! we had it over bisquites & [esp.] diced potatoes [very good] many thx. eugene
This is by far the most easiest and yummiest mince dish i have ever eaten i have made it for heaps of people and everyone is demanding me to make it more often at their parties thank you for putting this great dish on this website high marks for you :-D
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!
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.
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
