It's generation and in the old days it was chipped beef and my mother always used dried beef. I grew up in a small town in Iowa with a locker plant. The old locker plants maded the best dried beef and nothing like product found in glass jars. The best I had was dried with hickory smoke. They'd do smoked venison, too.
In the 21 years (68-89) I was in the army I can't recall ever seeing dried beef, it was always burger.
How the Cooks Prepared SOS
I googled the army recipe and all needed more salt or WOR.
