       Title: Kathy’s Chipped Beef
  Categories: Beef, Breakfast
       Yield: 1 servings
  
       1 pk Dried beef (I use
            Budding’s)
       2 tb Butter or margarine
       2 tb Flour
       1 c  Milk*
            Salt (it won't need much)
            White pepper to taste
       1 pn Dry mustard
  
   *(for a more authentic military flavor, use canned evaporated milk)
   
   Remove the beef from the package, and tear into shreds. Melt the
   butter, and briefly saute the beef in the butter (it should just
   become slightly crispy). Add the flour, and stir until the whole mess
   congeals slightly and begins to look a little like wet beach sand (DO
   NOT brown the flour).
   
   Stir in the milk, and whisk until smooth.  Season to taste with salt,
   pepper, and dry mustard.  Simmer briefly until thickened and all the
   floury taste is removed.
   
   Serve over mashed potatoes, rice, biscuits or toast.
   
   NOTE:  For a better, but distinctly non-military version of this
   dish, toss in a couple of generous handfuls of grated cheddar cheese,
   and a few grains of cayenne pepper.
