This was good but I added 1/2 teaspoon of pepper as my family thought it was missing something. I followed the rest of the recipe as written. We all enjoyed it.

My husband's culinary skills were limited to this recipe, pancakes and eggs and fried fish.
This was one of his favorities and our six-eight kids loved it. He served it with toast or fried potatoes. (We always had extra kids for supper or overnight)
We purchased the dried beef in half case lots, bagged it in meal portions and stored or froze it.
It was quick to make, very nutrious and did'nt cost an arm or a leg. We doubled or tripled the
recipe and made in a large dutch oven.

This has been a special breakfast treat for our family (originally from the Lancaster County area) for years. Sometimes, we even have it for dinner. We always serve it over toast, but biscuits and home fries sound great, too.

Very good. I did add a little more flour. Update: I made this today with about 8 ounces thin sliced deli turkey (cut up some). I also used 1/4 cup flour which I whisked into the cold milk before adding to skillet and 1/2 teaspoon salt was added as well. We loved it!

I add a couple dashes Worcestershire sauce and some black pepper for a little more seasoning. Goes great over wheat toast or biscuits.

This is a great simple recipe! My son said it was the best he ever had and I agree! I used evaporated milk.
