Creamed Dried Beef

Have you ever had egg gravy before?  It's a white sauce with boiled egg chopped and mixed in served over warm toast.  Well, this is exactly the same thing, only using dried beef.  It's a good, hearty, filling, classic meal.  Since me and my husband love egg gravy, we really liked this dish as well.  Once thing you should know, (and don't forget!!), is that 3 jars of beef is way too much.  It makes it just way too salty.  The woman who posted the recipe said to only use 2 jars of dried beef if it was the first time making it to see how salty you might like it.  So that's what I did.  Even that was a bit too much.  So next time I will either double my white sauce or only use 1 jar of dried beef next time.  Other than the saltiness, it was great!  And super easy, took 5 minutes to make.  Also, most of the ingredients you have around your kitchen most of the time anyway.  Such an easy, weeknight meal.


3 jar(s)dried beef  (I used 2, but will only use 1 next time around)
1 stkbutter  (I used margarine)
1/2 cflour
4 cmilk


 Tear (I cut with scissors) 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, stirring constantly, until desired thickness is achieved. Stir in dried beef. Serve over warm toast.

Gluten free: substitute GF all purpose flour.
