Creamed Beef

Total Time:
55 min
Prep:
30 min
Cook:
25 min

Yield:
4 servings
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 white bread slices, toasted and cut in half diagonally
  • Butter, to top
Directions

Saute the beef in a large skillet over medium heat, breaking it up with a wooden spoon and cooking until it is no longer pink, 12 to 15 minutes. Drain off the excess fat and sprinkle the meat with the flour. Stir and cook the beef and flour over medium heat until the flour has completely coated the beef and cooked slightly. Stir in the milk and continue to cook until the mixture becomes smooth and thickens, about 8 minutes. Add the salt and pepper. Serve over toast triangles. Top with a pat of butter.

Very bland. No flavor. Needs onion garlic Worcestershire.  item not reviewed by moderator and published
This sounds/looks/tastes like what my grandma use to make for her husband and six sons. She called it "hamburger gravy" and we ALL loved it!! I've missed it a lot over the years since she's been gone, never dreaming it was this easy to make!! Trisha, try it over potatoes - boiled, mashed, whatever you'd like. I'd be willing to bet you'll love that just as much!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made as written and it is tasty. The next few times I made it I prefered to add a few pats of butter to the simmering mixture and some worcestershire sauce. Otherwise easy and tasty for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. A nice change from creamed dried chipped beef.  item not reviewed by moderator and published
This hamburger gravy and to be served with Fried potatoes with onions on the first night, not toast. Toast is day #2 if any left overs and then day #3 on pancakes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this recipe but today I had alot of fajhita envelopes so I threw one in. I served it over toast and mexican cheese. Guess you could add just about anything. Still love it original. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I made this for two 6 year olds, a 5 year old and my husband. Everyone loved it. All the kids said, "Yum!" I served it over biscuits and added garlic and onion powder per other reviewers suggestions. It was so easy and quick to make! Great meal to make when you're crunched for time or don't feel like cooking. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I loved this. I needed a little more salt, but so glad I found a quick meal to make. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Creamed beef and toast is always a great treat. I'm just surprised that you did not mention that during WWII and also during the Korean war (I believe), this dish was known as sh*t on a shingle. It's a great old recipe!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very tasty meal ,, very hearty and filling. A great dish on a winter evening ! I used lean ground turkey instead of the beef , sauteed some onion in olive oil first before I added the turkey then followed the recipe from there. I served this dish over "'grandes" biscuits, which I cut in half to make it easier to spoon the meat over,, and made mashed potatoes for the side. So quick and easy !! thanks Trisha ! item not reviewed by moderator and published
this recipe is the most simple but soooooooo yummy. made it tonight just a few days after seeing it on TV with her sister. my hubby is very picky and he loved it. TY Trisha:) item not reviewed by moderator and published
Nice comfort food idea on a cold night. I added some garlic powder, garlic pepper and seasoning salt to the ground beef along with 1/2 of a chopped onion for the mixture. I served this on top of egg noodles and topped it off with some fresh sliced baby portabella mushrooms and fresh parsley that I sauteed in a tablespoon of olive oil and butter. Didn't need the butter on top. Served with a fresh green salad, Delish! item not reviewed by moderator and published

SOS! First thing my grandpa showed my Dad, when he was 8y, to make when he came home from WWII. First thing my Dad taught me when I was 8y, then my son when he was 8y! No measurements for us, done by eye with lots of pepper. item not reviewed by moderator and published
We used to make this all the time when I was growing up...guess it is time to try it again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My personal version of this is adding chopped sweet onion, and after draining the beef and onion, I melt a couple T of butter before adding the flour...I also add a bit of poultry seasoning and granulated garlic and serve over extra wide, buttered egg noodles that have been sprinkled with some chopped fresh parsley. Great for dinner! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Comfort food for sure! What a wonderful meal to cook for your family when you're too tired to cook much. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My father made this for us every Saturday morning! Adding beef bullion really makes it sing. Thank you so much Trisha. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband insist that I now make this and alter saturdays with my sausage gravy. The only things I altered on the recipe were garlic and onion powders, and whole wheat flour. Also, my husband prefers this Trisha to many of the other shows. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I love Trisha's Southern Cooking, I work weekends so I set my DVR. My thing us I find a great recipe and I go to the web site and the receipt is not there i.e. Trish's dad's Brunswick Stew. I looked all over for it, I love Brunswick Stew and it would be great to come home from work to. This is not the first time this has happened. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My momma made this years ago, so comforting, cheap and fast. You could serve this over rice which is a southern staple add some garden green beans and you are good to go!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was super yummy. I added seasoned salt, a tad bit of onion powder and a tad bit of garlic powder to the beef as I cooked it. I served it over toast alongside a couple of fried eggs for breakfast. Sensational! I will definitely make this again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Easy and delicious. My Dad use to make this all the time when we were little it brought back very good memories. Loved it item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a very good recipe for something quick and comforting. The only change I made to the recipe was adding a little garlic powder and little more salt and pepper. I've also made this recipe with a pound of breakfast sausage instead of ground beef. It was great! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have been eating this for over 50 years. My father was in the Air Force and they served this regularly during WWII and he brought the recipe home to the family. We all love it. Now my kids love it and make it all the time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this last night for my family and it was simple & comforting. I used skim milk and think 2% or whole milk would make the flavor more rich. My kids from 6 to 16 liked the dish over toast. item not reviewed by moderator and published
As I was making this recipe, my husband thought this was not going to be a keeper once he saw me add milk. Well he surely was wrong! This was so easy and delicious. The only thing I did differently was use ground turkey since that's all we had. I was a little skeptical but it still was very good! I definitely will make again. : item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this last week after seeing Trisha's show & being reminded how good something this simple can be. My mom used to make it with chipped beef, so the ground beef was new to me. It is delicious both ways. I put it over crescent rolls this time, but will try it over boiled potatoes next time as a previous reviewer said. Quick, good & so many things you can serve in over. Love Trisha's stories about her childhood. item not reviewed by moderator and published
She makes it look great on the show, and good reviews here. I waited all week for Saturday so I could try it... bland. Chipped beef is better. The Georgia parsley (butter was the real flavor. item not reviewed by moderator and published
So easy, fairly quick and SOOOO good! Husband gave it 2 thumbs up. I followed recipe as given. This could be a breakfast, lunch or dinner, very hearty. Thanks Trisha...good stuff!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
When I was a child more than 60 years ago, my mother's version of this was called "hamburger gravy" and was served over toast or boiled potatoes, or just plain. It was a cheap way to serve a bunch of kids in a house that didn't have a lot of money. Thanks for sharing this old-timey recipe--I still make it when I'm feeling a little homesick. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Simple and really good. Loved it! I never had any version of this growing up. So I am pleased to be able to have it going forward. I like the biscuit idea posted by other viewers. Love the show. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great, my family loved. I served over biscuits instead of toast. We grew up eating this with chip beef instead of ground beef. My dad was a Navy man and had the chip beef gravy on his ship and they called it "SOS" ("stuff" on a shingle. The ground beef was a nice change. I did add a bit extra milk to make more gravy..ain't nothing wrong with more gravy. My son suggested maybe using half ground beef and half pork sausage next time for even more flavor. item not reviewed by moderator and published
LOVE HOW EASY TRISHA MAKES COOKING LOOK!.....her recipes are keepers, creamed beef was easy to make and even easier to eat. I practically licked the plate clean. It will be perfect on a cold winter night. item not reviewed by moderator and published

LOVE YOUR SHOW...CREAMED BEEF JUST LIKED MY MOM MADE IT...DELICIOUS!!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
just don't understand how people review a recipe that they have totally changed.like some of the other folks on here....this is a classic comfort food and a dish eaten by almost all of our servicemen. my father who is a vet served this to me as a kid and I love it. you just don't add thing like mushrooms and parsley. And you most certainly don't serve it over noodles item not reviewed by moderator and published

Here's the link for her Brunswick Stew recipe. http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/trisha-yearwood/jacks-brunswick-stew-recipe.html. I'm from the north and have never had Brunswick Stew before but the recipes I HAVE come across aren't anything like this. Actually, when I watched her make this, it turned my stomach. It looked like a bowl of vomit. (Sorry.) item not reviewed by moderator and published
My Great-Grandfather was in the Air Force during WWII. And, the same thing for our family! He was served this and brought it home to us!! Love it! And, I love that I saw it on Trisha's show. Made me think of my Great-Grandpa! :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
