Creamed chipped beef is a classic American dish that is typically served for breakfast or brunch. Here’s a simple recipe to prepare it:


  • 4 oz. chipped beef
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Toast or biscuits, for serving


  1. Begin by soaking the chipped beef in water for 10-15 minutes to remove some of the saltiness. Drain the beef and pat it dry with paper towels.
  2. Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the chipped beef and cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned.
  3. Sprinkle the flour over the beef and stir to coat. Cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly, until the flour is lightly browned and fragrant.

  1. Slowly whisk in the milk, stirring constantly to prevent lumps from forming. Cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the mixture has thickened and the beef is tender.
  2. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve the creamed chipped beef hot over toast or biscuits.

Note: You can adjust the consistency of the sauce by adding more or less milk, depending on your preference. Additionally, you can add other seasonings or herbs to the sauce, such as garlic powder or parsley, to give it extra flavor.
