However, today, you'll be getting one of my all time favorite comfort food recipes, Creamed Chipped Beef on Toast.
- 1 jar dried beef (15 slices)
- ¼ butter
- ¼ cup flour
- 2 cups milk
- ⅛ teaspoon paprika
- salt and pepper to taste
- 4 slices whole wheat or white toast, buttered
- Slice 15 rounds of beef into thin strips
- In a saucepan over medium heat, melt butter
- Add flour and whisk to make roux, about 1 minute
- Add paprika, salt and pepper, blend
- Slowly whisk in milk until combined, continue whisking until mixture is thick and bubbly
- Evenly distribute over toast, serve immediately
- Dried beef contains a great deal of salt, some recommend cutting the salt by soaking the meat in water prior to use. I prefer not to soak the meat in water to keep the texture sound. In my opinion, milk cuts the salt perfectly, taste before adding more.
