This recipe comes from The Frugal Gourmet Cooks American. I never liked creamed chipped beef until I tried this. Use Texas Toast for a nicely substantial base to the sauce.
3 tbs butter
3 tbs peeled and chopped yellow onion
3 tbs flour
2 cups hot milk
4.5 oz jar dried chipped beef, sliced into bite-sized strips
1/4 tsp paprika
1 tbs dry sherry
DO NOT ADD ANY SALT
In a heavy saucepan or large skillet, melt the butter and saute the onion until clear. Stir in the flour with a whisk and then the hot milk, stirring all the time until the mixture thickens. When the mixture is thick, add the remaining ingredients and heat until warm. Serve over toasted bread cut diagonally and arranged on plate.I use Texas Toast for a substantial presentation.Super!
