S.O.S., creamed chipped beef or S*%$ on a Shingle ~ it all tastes the same no matter what you call it

Hubby had been craving S.O.S. a lot lately! I hadn’t made it in years and he really wanted to go OUT for a hometown diner style breakfast. Someone told us about a local diner that had it as a special every other weekend. Of course we had just missed that weekend so he had to wait almost 2 weeks until yesterday! He was soooooooooo excited and then he was soooooooooooo disappointed. It truly was S@#%! on a shingle, the dogs weren’t even thrilled with the leftovers! So this morning I surprised hubby with home made Creamed Chipped Beef and I thought I would share the recipe. One of my ‘secret’ ingredients is serving it over sourdough toast for extra flavor. The other is using a cast iron skillet.

1/3 cup butter
1 small onion, chopped fine

1 jar Armor dried beef*, chopped small

3 tablespoons flour

1 1/2 cup milk

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce (my last secret ingredient)

  • Melt the butter and add the onions.
  • After about 2 minutes add the beef also. Saute’ until onions are translucent.
  • Sprinkle with pepper. Use salt sparingly (beef is pretty salty)
  • Sprinkle flour over the meat and onions and stir in well. The flour will burn, so work quickly.
  • Gradually add in the milk, stirring continuously until mixture boils. Turn down heat.
  • Add the Worcestershire sauce and thicken to a gravy consistency.
  • Serve immediately over toast.
