This is our family's verson of this... My father loved it and my grandmother taught my mother to make it. My grandmother and mother both taught me... now I am teaching my grandchildren... This is good old comfort food, and it is so very easy to make.

How To Make creamed chip beef on toast !

  • 1
    Mix together the main sauce ingredients in a large stainless steel or non-stick pot. Slowly bring almost to a boil over medium heat (be careful not to scorch!), stirring constantly.
  • 2
    Mix together the thickener ingredients and slowly add to the hot almost boiling sauce mixture... stirring constantly until well thickened. (If it isn't thick enough, make a bit more thickener and repeat until it is desired thickness.
  • 3
    Add the chopped up (or torn up) dried beef. Add the thawed peas. When all is hot, turn the heat off.
  • 4
    Make slices of toast. Butter toast. Cut the toast into desired size cubes.
  • 5
    Pour desired amount of the sauce mixture over the cut up toast. *** You can also just serve over whole slices of toast the way they did in the old days... but I prefer the bite size pieces, especially for company.
