I hadn't had SOS in years but when my wife bought some dried beef the other day, I thought about it. This was pretty good, my wife loved it. Made exactly as written except added a pinch of pepper. I do think I will rinse the meat next time to reduce the salt.

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.
