Make It A Meal: Serve over toast or
truth of the matter is if you really like this
recipe and love S.O.S. its only enough for about
just a dash of garlic powder for a kick...my
granny taught me that!
an alternative, when SOS became "same old
stuff", our mess hall would substitute
tomatoes (or tomato paste) for the dried beef.
Gave it a very different taste without breaking
much of the routine.
GREAT served over home fried potatoes or hash
to say it but this is chipped beef on toast not
S.O.S. S.O.S. is made with ground beef and the
Marine Corps makes the best there is.
agree, SOS is with ground beef and the USMC makes
it the best.
served in the US Army from 1961 thru 1982 &
S.O.S. was prepared in the mess halls using dried
beef (like your recipe) until sometime in the
70's when they switched to using ground beef
(cheaper, I suppose). I've heard that SOS also
meant we are having the Same Old Stuff. It was
served every morning in the 60's and at some time
they moved it to Thursdays only. I liked
"chipped creamed beef" (what this was
called on the mess hall menu) served on toast and
this is the way I remember it. I suspect the
former marine served after 1970.
seen all the recipes on S.O.S. and had eaten it
until I began working shift work at a local plant
where we cooked at night. I've heard my dad talk
about it while he was in the Army and said he
wanted nothing to do with it because that's all
they ate. Mine is a different version which you
would have to experiment with which I still do. I
use ground beef, thin chopped celery, onions,and a
can of cream of mushroom soup, seasoned with salt
and pepper and sprinkle with sage to taste stewed
around in a frying pan and served over toast.
use a nearly identical recipe except it calls for
bacon grease instead of butter and no
have always made SOS (S--t on a Shingle) with
ground beef. The first time I had it was in Nov
1954 in the US Air Force, and when I left the Air
Force in 1966 they were still making it that way.
My father used to make it with dried beef, but I
never did. Perkins restaurant makes it with dried
beef, and it was pretty good, so I decided to try
it myself. I add 1 tsp soy sauce.
lol oh the memories. My
mom used to make it just like your recipe. tripled of course. I
hated it till dad started calling it S.O.S....lol I can almost smell
it being cooked now. no body made it better than mom.
