If you've ever been in the military, you'll be familiar with this one. My Marine father taught me how to make it when I was a kid, and it's still one of my favorite breakfasts.

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.

How to Make Creamed Dried Beef (or SOS)

Step-by-Step

  1. Tear (I cut with scissors) dried beef into small pieces and set aside. In saucepan, melt butter over low heat. After completely melted, add flour and mix in with spoon until no lumps show. Add milk and turn heat to high, stirring constantly until it boils. Turn heat back down to medium, stirring constantly, until desired thickness is achieved. Stir in dried beef. Serve over warm toast.
