Creamed Beef on Toast

This is how my mom made this for us kids growing up. It doesn't have a lot of ingredients and is simple to make. I always, always serve this with Young Early Peas. This is definitely not a dietetic dish either, since it takes a whole stick of butter.

Ready In:
30mins
Serves:
Units:

ingredients

  • 1 lb ground beef or 1 lb ground chuck
  • 12 cup butter
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 12 cup all-purpose flour
  • salt and pepper
  • 12 loaf bread, for making toast (your favorite brand)

directions

  • Brown ground beef in a medium sized skillet. Drain off fat.
  • In a medium sized sauce pan or pot melt the stick of butter. Add the flour and cook over medium/medium-low heat to make a thick paste or rue. Keep stirring till it is a smooth consistency. Takes just a few minutes or so.
  • Add the milk and stir till thickens to the consistency of cooked pudding. When this mixture cools down it thickens even more, so don't overcook or it will be too thick!
  • Add in the ground beef and stir till incorporated well.
  • Toast your bread. Serve with ground beef mixture on top of the toast. Salt and pepper to taste.

    I’ve been making SOS for many years now and I’ve never cooked it by making a rue first. This recipe turned out better than any I have made in the past. It’s much creamier and much easier to make. My family loves it.!!

    I added 2 tbs Worcestershire sauce and 2 tsp garlic powder. It was outstanding just like my Navy days.

    You are a lifesaver!!! I made this tonight and both my husband and I liked it very much. It was very simple and quick. I had leftover pork roast and used it and it was great!!!!

    One of my favorites from childhood. Daddy cooked this for us for breakfast. He didn't use any butter in his. He didn't measure, just went by eyesight, but I don't think he used as much flour. Still drained the beef, so not so much fat. Added flour to cooked, drained beef (I prefer ground round or ground chuck), stirred it well and then added milk and cooked until thickened. I like a lot of black pepper on mine. I was just thinking about making some this morning. Seeing this posted has really increased my craving. LOVE IT!!! Read in Trisha Yearwood's cookbook that she has this for breakfast every year on her birthday!
