This is a meal that my mother used to make a lot for us kids when we were growing up. You can find the dried beef in the grocery store with the pre-packaged lunch meats. It goes a long way on a cold day!

This was so good, I'm typing this as I'm eating it... Creamed Chipped Beef was a bit of a staple in my small Baltimore neighborhood when I was a child and my Great Grand-mom's was the best. You would think that with such little ingredients, it would all taste the same but it never did until I found this recipe. I used Esskay (Baltimore, MD) dried beef just like my Grand-mom did and it taste identical. The only thing I would change next time is to not use additional salt which is odd for me because I LOVE salty things but the dried beef added enough salt to taste.
