  • 2 (3-ounce) packages dried chipped beef
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 3 cups milk
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 8 slices bread


  • Slice the beef into bite-sized pieces.
  • In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the beef and cook, stirring occasionally, until it is lightly browned, about 2 minutes.
  • Add the flour; stir to combine. Cook for 1 minute, stirring frequently (this will cook the raw taste out of the flour).
  • Add the milk and stir or whisk to combine.
  • Bring to a boil then reduce the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the sauce has thickened, about 3 to 5 minutes. The longer you cook it, the thicker it will get. If you would like a thinner sauce, just add a little more milk.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste (taste it first; some brands of beef are saltier than others, so you may not need to add any salt at all).
  • While the sauce is cooking, toast the bread.
  • Spoon the sauce over the toast and serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

  • Also delicious served over English muffins, biscuits, hash browns or home fries (or mashed potatoes if you're serving for dinner!). 
  • If you have leftovers, you may need to add milk when reheating, as the sauce will become thicker after being refrigerated.
