This easy-to-make dish comes from Depression cooking, where a little meat could be stretched to feed & fill up a lot of people, and from the United States military, for the same reason. As an Air Force Brat born to Depression Era parents, it's a given that this dish would be on our table! If you prefer the Chipped Beef version, cut the dry beef into small pieces. Make a roux from butter, flour, and milk, then add the chipped beef pieces after it thickens.
Looking to cut down on my grocery budget, and this is a great way to start. I love the variety this menu offers - no more beans and rice! Even includes seafood dishes. Eat like a Queen on the budget of a Pauper. Pin now, read later!
