SOS In the last letter I asked for a recipe for “SOS” (Sh__ on a Shingle). I got a couple of different versions. I’ll print a couple of them here in case any of you haven’t had it for awhile & have a craving for it!!! They were sent in by: Don Sass: Creamed Chipped Beef (L-52) Beef, dried, sliced, 7 pounds (Separate dried beef slices). Shortening melted, salad oil, or olive oil. 1 pound or 2 cups. (Sauté slices in melted shortening until edges begin to curl. Set aside.) Milk, nonfat, dry 3 pounds 4 oz. or 3 quarts. Water, warm - reconstitute milk. Heat to just below boiling. Butter or margarine, softened. Flour, wheat, general purpose, sifted. Pepper black. Combine butter or margarine with flour & pepper. Add to milk, stirring constantly. Cook 5 minutes until thick. Then add beef to sauce. Blend well. Serve over toast, or biscuits. Minced Beef (L-36) (Red Stuff) Beef patty mix, bulk or beef ground, thawed. 20 pounds. Onions, dry, chopped 2 pounds.
