Put beef in pan over med heat add milk and flour.
Stir till boiling and cook for a minute or two. Add pepper to taste

Yup a quick easy way to stretch a little meat to feed many. We eat a meat gravy for supper quite often.

One of the few things I have fond memories of from the Army. Use to make it to the mess hall every morning after a night on the graveyard shift for a big plate of SoS.

That was the only inside cooking I can remember my Dad doing. He was U.S. Army Air Corps. Sunday A.M. breakfast. It's my comfort food and I will eat it any time I get the chance. There are other politically incorrect names for it that I learned in H.S....

SWAMBO serves chipped beef gravy over rice. First time she did that I said, WTF?? But it actually works well that way.

different prep, same dish

2 recipes 1 uses sausage for breakfast, the other hamburger

stick butter in skilllet get it hot.
lower heat
stir in, flour...1/8 cup...make a rue

stir and cook for about 5 minutes...constant stir..do not burn

add 1/2 pound [or more] cooked sausage/hamburger

to skillet add 2 cups milk

stir, and cook, it will thicken as it cooks

serve over toast, rice, biscuits, or mashed taters

OR..

instead of meat, add 2 cans hot rotell tomatoes....tomato gravy

We used to carry a backpacking version into the wilderness. Mix powdered milk, flour, black pepper, and a touch of red pepper, blend and rub in room temperature butter, mix in chipped beef. Measure out in ziplock bags. In your campsite, heat your water, remove from heat, add premeasured mix and stir like hell, return to heat and stir until thick. Serve over bread. We carried English muffins because they survived a couple of days in the backpack.
Great stuff around the campfire by a mountain stream with a steaming mug of coffee.
Keeps well in the frig, makes a quick and easy almost instant version of SOS. I have occasionally taken it to the office over the years and people nuke it in a coffee mug for a quick hot breakfast.
