CREAMED CHIPPED BEEF & TOAST RECIPE


This is a classic dish. The creamy, gravy-like white sauce rehydrates dried beef, and a pinch of black pepper gives this simplistic recipe a little depth of flavor. Although many folks like to serve creamed chipped beef over thick, golden slices of Texas toast, you can also spoon over warm buttermilk biscuits. Many folks remember it as breakfast back in the day.

INGREDIENTS

·         4 tablespoons butter
·         1/3 cup flour
·         3 cups whole milk
·         1 teaspoon black pepper
·         4 1/2 ounces dried beef, cut into strips
·         Texas toast slices (or biscuits, if desired)




INSTRUCTIONS

1.   Melt butter in a cast-iron skillet over medium heat until bubbling. Stir in flour, and then add whole milk, whisking until flour is completely incorporated. Stir constantly until the sauce has thickened.
2.   Add pepper and strips of dried beef to sauce mixture, stirring until pepper is incorporated and beef is evenly coated. Spoon over Texas toast or biscuit halves; serve warm and top with additional ground pepper, if desired.
