Creamed Dried Beef (or SOS)
I use 3 jars of dried beef simply because I love it. You may want try this recipe using only 2 jars the first time you make it. Some folks don't like the saltiness of using 3 jars.
I always add pepper while cooking the gravy, but I wouldn't advise adding salt until you've tasted the gravy. Dried beef is very salty and adding more salt could easily ruin the whole dish.
