I love chipped beef/S.O.S. and this one is very good but a bit on the salting side.I think I will soak the beef in a bit of boiling water after I cut it up to de-salt it some.Not too long of a soak maybe five minutes.I also only had one jar of the Hormel Dried beef so I halved the whole recipe down the middle and the proportions were perfect.Just enough for my hubby and me.Thanks for posting!

I love the this recipe it is a fantastic base for what my dad taught my mom to make from the air force. We also add frozen peas and it was a little bland and I couldn't figure out until later that it was missing the onion powder. My mom always used chopped dried onions, but my husband isn't too fond of them. Thanks!

Nice! This was my first time making SOS without a sauce packet - much better tasting! I set the recipe for a single serving and ended up having to add a bit of flour and butter to thicken it up while using ~ 12oz of milk.

This is exact to the recipe I grew up on and still make today! I use dried beef, hamburger or sausage, whatever we're in the mood for! It's so yummy.... it's hard to stop eating. We go back and forth between eating over toast or mashed potatoes. Mmmm

exactly what i was looking for! i actually also fried the dried beef in a little butter for about 7 minutes to give it a little crisp, and ended up using less than the quart of milk. I also added some shredded colby jack cheese for some depth. DELISH!!

I make this for my husband a lot. As it shows in the picture, we add frozen peas. I usually triple the batch. To make it faster, heat up the milk before adding it to the flour and butter mixture. I also heat up the beef in a frying pan to toast it a little so it's not so limp. Here in Wisconsin grocery stores dried beef is easily found with the packaged lunch meat, pepperoni, and summer sausage.

Brings back memories of chowhall days out in the fleet. One the few breakfast I really loved. This recipe does it justice. The only changes I made was instead of the dried chip beef I used fresh chipped beef, but that's hard to find. I also doubled the recipe so I can make it through out the week. And btw we never put butter on the toast, that's not how we got in the militaryard, but might try it. Last change I did was add a bit more chili powder to spice it up a bit. Great recipe as is, and is a great base to adjust to other taste.

Very good, I only used one jar of the beef but still made everything else the same. I thought the consistency was perfect. Only other change I made was a spash of worcestershire sauce because that is the way I grew up making it. Thanks for posting.
