I bought some chipped corn beef about three or four years ago from a company that freeze dries all their foods. I was expecting more of the taste than i actually got and i didn't like it at all. I guess i didn't like it because I didn't like the dried out beef. I was wondering if anyone might be able to tell me if i could possibly make it without drying out the beef and have it come out ok?.

I have never had this but since watching this thread I did buy some of the canned dried beef to make it soon. It does sound like a nice comfortable meal.

chipped beef

When my Mom and I make Creamed Chipped Beef we saute the chipped beef in a little butter first to bring out the flavor then we add the flour and cook it for a little bit to cook out the flour taste then we added the milk slowly. Just a little different way of doing it

this chipped beef in this recipe ? is it the sandwich packages beef ? i seem to remember Budding being a sandwich meat. i'm not sure where to find this at the grocery store.

also the receipe seems to indicate it needs to be dried in the oven. how do you do this ?

I believe the folks that mentioned oven-drying their beef were talking about making their own. There is absolutely no necessity or reason for oven-drying the "chipped/dried" beef products for sale in the plastic packets or glass jars. They're already dried & seasoned. Have a texture resembling Prosciutto ham. Just use them "as is".
