Army SOS Creamed Ground Beef

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2013
To all you "foodies" trying to add something so this isn't so bland, forget it! This recipe has a history. Legend has it that SOS was first served in France during WW1. Originally, it was Boeuf a la sauce d' Argonne which had been prepared for the officers' mess, but with the impending battle no one was eating. The Marines were moving fast and outpacing the field kitchens. It was Army cooks who came up with the idea to fire up their field stoves and get hot chow to Marines advancing along the eastern front. Slap a spoonful on a stale slice of white bread and enjoy. PS the Marine version is better! (of course)
