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!
This is exactly the way my mom prepared this for our family and it's a winner. I'd introduced it to my own children and now I'm raising grandchildren and they love it too. I do serve it on toast but I also serve it on biscuits which I think the kids prefer. I love it either way. I've never tried it over waffles, I might have to give that a shot. Sounds like that method would be a great kid pleaser.
This recipe is exactly how I make my Creamed Chipped Beef. Delicious and easy to prepare. One of my options is to add sliced, hard boiled eggs after mixture has thickened; just before serving. Other options are to serve over mashed potato or white rice.
I gave this 5 stars. I love creamed chipped dried beef on toast. When I was little my gram & mom used to make this for me. I loved it and I haven't had homemade in years. Thanks for posting a great recipe. Christine (internetnut)
This was great. I grated a bit of nugmeg in mine. Also added a bit of worcestershire sauce. Thanks.
i put the beef in a strainer and pour boiling water over it to desalt it. i then made the recipe exactly as posted and served it over whole wheat unbuttered toast triangles. yum, yum, yum!
OH YUM! My mother used to make this for me, I love it....thanks for submitting this, now I make it. Truely comfort food for me.
