A great alternative to traditional SOS. Lower in fat too! This is a recipie my mother used back in the 1960's using cream of mushroom soup instead of white sauce.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (2 1/2 ounce) package dried beef
  • 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup (reduced sodium works great)
  • 0.5 (5 ounce) can whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 14 teaspoon white pepper
  • toasted bread (Rye is great but white is traditional)


  1. You may want to rinse the beef in cold water to reduce saltiness and dry in a paper towel.
  2. Shred the beef into small pieces and cook over medium heat for 3 minutes in butter.
  3. Add mushroom soup, milk and white pepper.
  4. Simmer for 3-4 minutes and serve over toast.

This is a great, easy recipe. I usually use Buddig Beef or another very thin cut lunchmeat and it works well. Also great for tuna!

Wow what a great version of an old classic!!! I actually had a 5 oz jar of the beef so I added it for an extra "beefy" version. We had it over biscuits and all loved the mushroom soup instead of gravy. Thanks for sharing!
