Creamed Chipped Beef


1 jar dried beef, sliced into thin ribbons

4 tablespoons butter

4 tablespoons all-purpose flour

4 cups whole milk

Pepper to taste


  1. Melt butter in a heavy pan over medium heat. Add flour to the pan and whisk for several minutes to remove the raw flour taste.
  2. Slowly pour in milk and whisk continuously until a thick sauce forms.
  3. Add pepper to taste and stir in the dried beef. Serve over generously buttered toast.

Note: Normally you would add salt to the bechamel sauce but the beef is already quite salty so you should omit any additional salt.
