This is an old classic. I first had this almost 20 years ago when a close friend's mom made it. I love it, have her recipe now (shout out to Bonnie!) and make it for my family. It is a warm, yummy comfort food that is so cheap to make!
Here is what you need (Serves 4):
2 packages of Budding Beef, 2 cups milk, 2 cans buttermilk biscuits (or toast!), 4 Tb. butter, 1/4 cup flour, 1/4 t pepper, 1/4 t *nutmeg, dash of *cayenne (*I didn't use the last 2 ingredients b/c I didn't have them on hand, but feel free to add them to yours!)
Step 1: Melt 4 Tb. butter over medium heat in a large skillet. Preheat your oven if you are making biscuits.
Step 2: Tear the beef into pieces and cook in the butter until the edges curl up.
Step 3: Once your meat is done, add 1/4 cup flour, 1/4 t. pepper, 1/4 t. nutmeg and a dash of cayenne pepper. Stir and cook until bubbly. While this is heating, either put your biscuits in to bake or make toast to serve the gravy on.
Step 4: Add 2 cups milk, stir constantly until boiling. Cook 1 min. or until to your desired thickness.
Step 5: Looks like it's ready!
Step 6: Serve over biscuits or toast. Yummy!
