Creamed Beef (SOS)


  • 5 tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp bacon grease
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups warm milk
  • 2 tsp pepper (adjust to taste)
  • 4 oz sliced beef (e.g., Buddig)
  • 4 oz dried beef


  1. Prepare the Roux: In a medium saucepan over low heat, melt the butter and bacon grease together.
  2. Make the Roux: Whisk in the flour all at once to form a roux. Stir continuously until the mixture is smooth and slightly thickened.
  3. Add Milk: Gradually whisk in the warm milk, a little at a time, ensuring there are no lumps. Increase the heat to medium-high and continue cooking, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens to your desired consistency.
  4. Season: Stir in the pepper to season the sauce. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.
  5. Add Beef: Fold in the sliced beef and dried beef. Allow the mixture to simmer for a few minutes, ensuring the beef is heated through.
  6. Serve: Spoon the creamed beef over toasted artisan bread or Texas toast. Enjoy!


  • You can customize the thickness of the sauce by adjusting the amount of flour used in the roux.
  • Feel free to add additional seasonings like garlic powder, onion powder, or herbs for extra flavor.
  • Serve with a side of eggs or roasted vegetables for a complete meal
