Old-School Creamed Chipped Beef

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 8 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 3 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1 jar dried beef, quickly rinsed in warm water and roughly chopped
  • Black pepper
  • Salt, as needed
  • Freshly-ground nutmeg, to taste


Melt the butter in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Sprinkle in the flour. Whisk to combine, then allow the raw taste of the flour to cook off for a few minutes - whisking occasionally. Whisk in the milk. Continue whisking until no lumps remain and "gravy" is smooth. Reduce heat to low. Stir in the beef. Season with the nutmeg and lots of black pepper. Taste and add in salt, as needed (the beef is usually quite salty, so beware).

Serve over buttered toast or mashed potatoes. Additional milk can be whisked in - as needed - if your gravy becomes too thick for your preference.
