Serves 4
? 2 tablespoons canola or other cooking oil
? 1/2 pound thinly sliced dried beef, cut into 1-inch strips
? 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
? 4 to 5 cups milk
? Pepper to taste
1. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
2. Add the dried beef and saut? until lightly browned, about 5 minutes.
3. Reduce heat to medium-low; add the flour and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring often to combine with the oil.
4. Gradually whisk in the milk; cook until thickened, about another 5 to 10 minutes. Sprinkle with pepper. Serve over toast slices or with biscuits.
Notes: I like to add sliced cheese on the toast that melts slightly when topped with the hot beef mixture.
This is an old family recipe my mother used to make for my father. She claimed that it is an old Pennsylvania Dutch recipe. I know it was served in the military when my father was in the army, and was nicknamed ‘SOS’, having nothing to do with the distress signal other than the abbreviation. I have also heard it called creamed chipped beef.
