Sunday: Chipped Beef Gravy over Biscuits

We are excited to announce that we have a freshly updated website! To see this recipe on our new site, along with a printable version of the recipe, click here.

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!

Cost of Meal (serves 4): 2.00
Cost per person: 50 cents

I made this dish this past Sunday and the family really liked it. I just blogged about it on my blog and linked my readers to your website. I look forward to reading more on your blog.

This is a old favorite in my family's household. We have never used nutmeg. Great addition. We also always wash the chip beef.
