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.

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

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

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
