This was my mom's favorite casserole when she was younger. However, she didn't get it very often because her brothers didn't like it as much. I like it, though, so I posted it! To make the dish less salty, rinse the beef in water before cooking. Also, cut down on the addition of salt in the recipe. (I find I need to do these things, to suit my tastes)
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1⁄4 cup chopped onion
- 1 (5 ounce) package dried beef (cut up or sliced as desired)

- Blend in flour, salt and pepper, and stir until bubbly and then remove from heat.
- Stir in milk.
- Put it back on the burner, and stir constantly.
- Bring to a boil, and boil for 1 minute- Keep stirring so it doesn't burn.
