SOS

How do you make your beef on a shingle? I used to love it and just saw an article somewhere where the meat was actually ground beef. (Or was it on t.v.?) Anyway how do you do it and what do you serve with it?

jenny has it right though it can be made with ground beef also (less salty). If you go with the ground beef I'd suggest it will need some seasoning with salt and pepper. We usually serve it over toast.

I'm with Jenny on this also. Mom served it to us over toast.

I haven't had "SOS" in years. It was one of my dad's specialties, I assume dating back to his army years. He always used Hormel dried beef to make his SOS. We also had it over toast or English muffins.

My ex made some abomination with dried beef and canned tomato soup that was so salty it was inedible but she loved it.

I grew up with the beef in a jar and the jars became our juice glasses.

I think it was Armour back then and the jars had little stars around the rim.

The dried beef has become so expensive and the quality is not all that good so now when I make it I use pieces of ham and a handful of frozen peas. I usually serve it over baked or boiled potatoes.

Same here! The small jars were our juice glasses and the larger ones were our regular drinking glasses. For those who don't know, they were made to be used that way later--no threads on the top.

I like your idea of using ham and peas.

The few times they served this in the mess hall, I ate several boxes of Cheerios instead!

You have to soak the beef in the jar to rinse out some of the salt. It use to be a cheap meal for Sunday night. I would sometimes put a hard boiled siced egg in the sauce. Always toast. I will have to look at it the next time I go shopping. See what the price is now.

It was the late 40's and I was up my uncle's house for supper. He was a very quiet man. You had to really pay attention to him when he talked because he talked so softly. He had just gotten out of the Army and when he sat down at the table to eat, his wife put SOS in front of him. That dish went flying across the room. It was the only time I ever saw or heard him raise his voice. I doubt if my aunt ever served that to him again.
