Notes

  • Dried Beef Gravy is such a hit in the family that we created an fancy version. Try it here!
  • Barbara's favorite dried beef comes from Rihm Foods. It's a specialty item they make around the holidays and she stocks up then!
  • What can you substitite for dried beef in a jar? Use the refrigerated dried beef packets (Buddig dried beef). Here's a helpful hint. It's much more economical.  For this recipe, use two of the beef packets from the refrigerator section.  
  • This dried beef gravy serves two- three people so make double or triple if needed.
  • What to serve with creamed chipped beef? Try Old Fashioned Fruit Salad, Ham and Cheese Quiche or Red Bean Salad
