Creamed Chipped Dried Beef On Toast or Waffles

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 15 mins

I've had this recipe for years given to me by my mother. I have to at least triple this when I make it. The recipe says 4 servings, but we like a lot on our toast. We love it for breakfast with fried eggs. Yummy! I also add ground black pepper to mine, but that's just how I like it. Cook and prep times are approximate.

Thanks for reminding me how to make this. It's been probably 20 years since I made this from scratch. I had gotten lazy and was eating the frozen tv dinner kind this whole time which is much more expensive. My mom always uses 3 T of flour and 3 T butter and 3 cups milk to 1 jar of dried beef so that is what I did this time. I prefer it this way which is less thick and less chunky. Even my 2 year old loved this. Oh, yes, always soak with hot water a few times to get rid of most of the salt in the meat. Then I use kitchen shears to cut the beef into pieces straight into the pan.

I have not eaten this in over 25 years! This recipe tastes exactly how I remember my grandmother's tasted. It really is important to rinse the dried beef because it is very salty. I added a little black pepper to mine. Thanx for sharing!
