Chipped Beef on Toast

My recipe is a retro classic. I am not entirely certain, but I think it originated in WW2 as a military food. Possibly because dried beef was easy to ship along with troops.

It has always been loved, despite the rude moniker of “SOS” which describes it as “slop on a shingle” or perhaps another “S” word more uncouth than that. One that inspires giggles and takes absolute bravery to stand up to the name with a smile and a clean plate.

I’ve noted in the recipe and will here as well that the jarred beef is saltier than the little packets of thin beef you can get in the deli. So don’t add salt until tasting the gravy after you add the beef. You can always add more but you can’t take it out. I don’t care what people say about adding sugar, potatoes or old shoes to remove salt or cayenne pepper. Those are old wives tales as the saying goes. 😉
