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.
- 1 jar dried beef
- 1 tablespoon flour
- 1 tablespoon butter or 1 tablespoon margarine
- 1 1⁄2 cups milk
- 4 -6 slices toast, buttered or not or 4 -6 waffles
- Put shredded beef in pan, sprinkle with flour, add butter, and slightly brown.
- Add milk and stir until thick.
- Serve on toast or waffles.
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.
This was SO EASY to make and my boyfriend loved it! He went absolutely nuts over it! I will definitely be making it again!
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!
