CREAMED CHIPPED BEEF
This is one of my all-time favorite dishes. Is this something you remember enjoying as a kid? This was one of those comfort dinners that my mother cooked for me on a regular basis, and she finally taught me how to make it myself.
This Creamed Chipped Beef is the perfect comfort food. For some reason, when I was a kid, I always remember my mom preparing this for me. The flavor of beef in a delicately seasoned silky cream sauce served over whole-grain bread brings back such happy memories.
It’s a dish of chopped dry beef in a creamy, delectable white sauce that is barely seasoned. The cream sauce is commonly a béchamel sauce, which is prepared with flour, butter, and milk. It is traditionally eaten with toast, although it is also great when served with eggs or potatoes.
Creamed Chipped Beef isn’t the healthiest recipe, but if you only make it once in a while, I think everything will be fine. Indeed, a tasty nostalgic meal that transports us back in time to a joyful place cannot be all bad for us, right?
