Creamed Beef for SOS
By Lets Start Cooling
I loved it when Mom used to make this for us! I have no idea if she originally made it for Dad, who had been in the army, or if she just liked it because it tasted good and was a budget stretcher. A traditional favorite, good ol’ SOS. Note: the title of this recipe specifies that it is made ground beef, rather than chipped beef; “authentic” SOS is generally made with chipped beef, however many folks also refer to the ground beef version by the same name.”
1 pound ground beef
2 cubes chicken bouillon, crumbled
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups low-fat milk
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat; stir in the ground beef, chicken bouillon, garlic powder, black pepper, and onion powder. Cook and stir until the beef is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink, about 7 minutes.
Stir in the flour and cook for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in the milk and bring to a simmer, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 5 minutes to thicken.
