Time got away from me, so here's my recipe. I use Carson's air-dried beef, which is delicious. You can find it here at Alderfer Meats if it's not available in your grocery cooler. I used to buy it all the time when I lived in Washington, DC. Sooo good. Enjoy!

(Serves 4)
1 (4-oz.) pkg. dried beef
3 Tbsp. butter
3 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
2 cups milk, warmed
1 (14-oz.) can peas, drained
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Slice beef into fine shreds; set aside.

In a 10-inch skillet, melt butter over low heat. Add beef and increase heat. Cook until beef just begins to brown. Sprinkle in flour and whisk to mix evenly.

Slowly add the milk, a little at a time, whisking constantly. Stir about 5 minutes longer until the mixture thickens. Add peas and continue cooking until heated through.

Add pepper to taste and check for saltiness. Serve over toast, biscuits, hashbrowns, and mashed or baked potatoes. Note: Dried beef is naturally salty. You may not have to add any salt at all.

This is real inspiration. Look what Julia became!

My dad, who was in the Navy, called it SOS, but my little school teacher mother called it Creamed beef.

We get by with a little help from our friends
