This is a really good recipe. If I may throw a twist on it. Do not drain the beef add your flour to that and let it brown a bit. Just let it thicken. The gravy will be brown and full of more flavor. You can add onions to the meat while it cooks. That is good also. Thank You
This is an interesting twist on the infamous S.O.S. (Swell ole Stuff) that all Marines learned to eat in boot camp. We always had it for breakfast and it was served over toasted bread. In about 1999, "Leatherneck," the magazine for Marines, held a recipe contest for SOS. The winning recipe ws similar to this recipe, but included seasoning with Soy Sauce and Worcestershire Sauce. That recipe also included a cup of finely chopped onions. I tried this recipe and it works well. I like the idea of having the nutritional information too.
Spending 9 years in the Army and having S.O.S.almost every morning I thought I wouldn't find a recipe that comes close to what I enjoyed. Thank you. But we had ours on a couple of buns. Now I enjoy it on these cold winter days that we had.
