Creamed Chipped Beef – 5 Ingredients

My grandfather was a Chief Petty Officer (CPO) in the US Navy. He loved to make this for the family as his special Sunday Brunch treat. Popular with the veteran community and referred to as S.O.S (You might want to Google this for it’s more colorful name.) Originally a staple US Military meal, it’s still a beloved hearty morning breakfast or filling evening supper. Serve this on toast and watch your family want more or at least every Sunday!
