SOS - military style

Kathleen Brigham


Growing up we had this often with a salad,or fresh cooked veggies (my fave with it was fresh peas)My mom used dried chipped beef. Considering the economy now compared to then lean ground beef is just as tasty. If you'd like you could use dried beef - about 6 - 8 ounces, no need to brown dried beef.

How to Make SOS - military style


  1. Add the teaspoon of oil to hot, deep skillet along with the ground beef. As beef begins to lose raw look, add the chopped onion, salt and pepper.

    Reduce heat and simmer, stirring often, until meat is completely cooked. Sprinkle flour over top and stir into meat and onion mixture until totally absorbed.

    Slowly add milk, stirring constantly, until thickened. Taste and adjust salt and pepper.

    Serve over 2 slices of toast or biscuits;
