    I love this stuff. I always bought the Stouffers but it is getting kinda expensive for what it is. I will have to start making my own. I had a friend whose mom made hamburger gravy she served it over rice . She browned the hamburger , didn't drain it, added flour and pepper and water .. Really cheap meal to feed a bunch of kids.
    I also like corned beef hash. The one thing I hated was something my ex's mom made and he loved it of course. He called it ketchup steak. She would use ketchup from the bottom of the bottle add water and left over steak and serve it that way. yuck. I made it but slowly over time added onion and garlic and some pepper .

    We just called it "chipped beef on toast" and I haven't had it in years, but now I want some!

    We ate dried beef gravy instead of sausage gravy. Love it on toast.
    Happy Quilting.

    I haven't had SOS in ages. It was one of our favorites as a kid. I don't know why mom rarely made it, not only is it easy but it is cheap. I sometimes add a little chopped and sauteed onion. It isn't a favorite of my kids. They just don't know what is good. I like it over an english muffin.

    My dad made slumgullion with ground beef, sautéed onions, and chopped green pepper cooked together then add scrambled eggs stirred with the meat mixture until the eggs were cooked ...and topped with a little ketchup. Loved it!

    my mother did the chipped beef in the white sauce (flour, butter & milk) also. While preparing it, she would tuck slices of bread into the cups of a muffin tin and bake in the oven 'til browned....fill and serve...omg..it was so good......

    thought I would serve it to hubby years later but the response was not too enticing..he was accustomed to the SOS of the armed service kitchens.....the hamburger version.........

    SHABBYTABBY.........also loved the creamed tuna......with noodles......things were stretched out those war days.......

    My husb. was a 20 yr. Navy veteran & he said they always served SOS on boards his ships all the time. Yep, they really called it that, too. What else would you expect from a bunch of salty sailors though. He loved it.

    We had this on the menu when I was a kid,,,more than 70 years ago. It was a filling meal and we never tired of it. I grew up during the food rationing of the second world war and we were glad for whatever we got.

    My Dad was a 20 year Navy veteran, worked his way up through the ranks to CWO2. We often had SOS, the chipped dried beef type , also the creamed tuna on toast or noodles;whatever Mom had on hand. I'm one of 5 kids, so meals that fed lots of kids and was cheap was important.
    I've not had either of these dishes in years, I might just have to make some, but with the hamburger rather than the dried beef in the jars.

    My Dad, WWII, made us SOS using the chipped beef w/peas. My Uncle Renee' on the other hand WWI, made his with hamburger. I prefer the chipped beef. Also used to get fed creamed tuna (ugh) and then there was this stuff they called Welsh Rarebit(?) a tomato thing with cheese---eeewwwwww!
