Crews Mess: Recipes and Food Tidbits for Boat Sailors

Creamed Chipped Beef (FOT):

  • Cut the beef into thin strips (Note: One jar of this beef will make about three meals, so you will only need about a third of the jar for a two person meal).

  • Put two tablespoons of canola oil in a sauce pan on medium heat. Add two heaping tablespoons of flour, and pepper to taste. The beef is pretty salty, so you'll have to experiment around with whether you want to add any salt now, or wait until it gets on your plate.

  • Stir the oil and flour mixture until the flour just starts to brown. Add a cup and a half of milk, stirring constantly until the mixture starts to thicken. Add the beef strips, stirring to get a uniform distribution. Turn down the heat to low and let simmer for about 5 min, or until your toast is done.
