This is a breakfast that is most often served in Amish homes according to my mother. But my dad called s.o.s and said he had it in the army.
- 1⁄4-1⁄2 cup margarine or 1⁄4-1⁄2 cup butter
- 1 (12 ounce) jar dried beef
- 4 green onions
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1 pint milk
- 5 -6 slices toast
- Cut the beef and onions very fine.
- Melt the butter or margarine in a large skillet. First add onions for 1-2 minutes then add beef.
- Sprinkle the flour over the mixture and stir well to cook the flour and melted butter,be sure it doesn't stick or burn-stir constantly.
- Gradually add the milk, continue stirring until the mixture boils, then turn the fire down and cook slowly.
- It should thicken enough to be a good gravy consistency.
- Serve over toast.
- Some people serve it on the toast with chopped hard boiled eggs.
- I am sorry there is no stove temperature.
- mentioned but this is written word for word from my mothers cook book.
DH would probably eat this 7 days a week! He said this is the best recipe of all. I liked the easy preparation. I started it off on med. hi, put the heat up to boil the gravy for a minute, and then simmered it for a couple minutes. It was smooth and very tasty!
I grew up eating this stuff! My mom always made it without the onion, but I personally prefer it with the onion. You could also add a little diced green bell pepper for flavor if you have no onions. This is the only gravy I like and it is so wonderful on toast!
Excellent! I made this 2 times, and used dried beef that was lower in sodium the second time. With the second batch, it had a much better taste. Thanks!
