Beef & gravy

or -bleep- on a shingle.
ground beef, white sauce, seasonings, (lotsa black pepper), over bread with mashed taters.

also, ham, cabbage & taters.
pressure cook with ham base.

Same here!! LOL. But I swear it was thin sliced corned beef that was used? I am remembering three variations. One had bread, then beef, then mashed potatoes and gravy. The other had bread, turkey, stuffing, and gravy. What we called SOS though was bread, cornded beef, and white gravy with lots of black pepper in it.

I think it's actually supposed to be chipped beef but hamburger was cheaper and we didn't have much money when I was a kid so my Mama made it with hamburger.

My mom taught me the same way, and to rinse each chip of beef before making it so it wasn't so salty. ~Bliss

I always serve it with peas on the side, and mix them up when I eat it.

Mama, my ex liked it with hamburger sometimes...he said that's the way they fixed it in the army.

By the way, my mother called it creamed beef.
