Creamed Dried Beef

(10 servings)

  • 3 jars dried beef
  • 1 stick butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 cups milk
Tear 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-high, stirring constantly, until desired thickness (gravy consistency) is achieved. Stir in dried beef. Serve over warm toast.

For large crowds, double the recipe.

A classic military-style gravy that's usually served over toast. For a modern twist, try serving it over waffles.
