    I do it the easy way...buy packages of dried chipped beef - in my grocery store, near the bacon/pork roll. Recipe is on the back of the package but it's easy. I cut up the beef into bite size pieces, I use 1/2 the butter (abt 2 tbsp - recipe calls for 4). Brown the meat in the butter for a couple of seconds. Add 4 tablespoons flour; 2.5 cups milk. Stir to get rid of lumps, cook over med heat until thick - about 5-10 min. Since I try to avoid flour, I eat it over baked (or nuked) potato. DH likes it on toast.

    If I don't feel like making white cream gravy I use an envelope of Peppered White Gravy that you add 3 cups water to. I use the dried beef in jars, cut in bitesize pieces. I don't add the dried beef until the gravy is smooth. This doesn't need salt....there's plenty in the beef.

    When I was a kid, my Mom's "creamed chipped beef" was a white sauce (butter, flour and milk) to which she added chopped up Buddig beef, from the small pouch, and peas. We ate it on toast. Not my favorite, but I liked it better than what she called "chop-suey"!!!

    we grew up eating it. jarred chipped beef and white sauce. mom added a chopped hard boiled egg
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Diet Dr. Pepper in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

    I remember my Mom making this during World War II when fresh meat was rationed. We ate it at least one or two nights a week. Also creamed tuna on toast. I still enjoy those simple dishes.
    Families are like old quilts....although they tend to unravel at times...each can be stitched back together with love.

    My Mom called it S on a S too. I had it at a friend's house and she was rather snobbish about it when I came home raving about it. Said that name came from soldiers eating it too many times during the war.
