We had ground beef & the other ingredients on hand, but not much cash, so I gave this a try. We enjoyed it very much as a hot & tasty meal on toast, with a side of broccoli. Only change was that I used minced garlic instead of the powder, but only because we love it. Will make this again as a great budget stretcher.
Yum! I don't know if most consider this comfort food but it sure does bring back lots of warm and fuzzy memories. I made it for lunch today and throughly enjoyed not only the taste but the walk down memory lane that came with it. thanks!
I liked it that it was fast, easy, and cheap to make, but my husband and I agreed I would make it only if we were in a pinch we aren't big hamburger gravy people. I am glad I tried it though.
I made exactly as directed with no changes. Easy to make, most everything I had on hand. My husband tasted for me and his response was "yummy" so I knew it was a keeper! Thanks for sharing!
I still love this. I make it quite often...not because we are cheap...but because its so good. I like it best over rice. And even if it was supposed to be chipped beef...its good with ground beef.
I guess I am just a young cook but I have never had it with chip beef. I have a family of 6 and we all loved it. The kids were skeptical at first (the name and appearance) but they wanted me to make sure I rated it. I made it just as the recipe called for and we enjoyed it over biscuits (southern thing).
Great change to the traditional sh*t on a shingle (SOS)! My husband who doesn't really like SOS with chipped beef loved it! He doesn't like soggy bread though, so we serve the toast separately--buttered. Yummy and very easy!
This was very good! I had peas for a little "green" and my family actually asked me to make it twice this week!
I love this recipe and have made it for years. You are right, though. Mom used to use the chipped beef and a cream sauce for authentic SOS on toast (she would add chopped hard boiled eggs to it as well). I always use real garlic instead of the powder for this recipe. Last night for a kick I used Italian Sausage instead of the ground beef. It was delicious. Try it sometime!
I have to agree with Eric Frankel...this must be a post WWII thing, but SOS is made with chipped beef, not ground beef. I know, because I grew up on it, served on toast.
