3 ounce package of dried beef slices
4 Tbsp. Butter or margarine
4 Tbsp. flour
2 cups milk
Toast or biscuits
Pour hot water over dried beef. Let stand about 3 minutes then drain well. Melt margarine or butter in a skillet over low heat. Tear or cut beef slices into shreds and add to the melted butter – stir to coat. Add flour to the pan a little at a time, stirring. Cook one to two minutes, stirring often. Add the milk about 1/2 cup at a time – mix well each time. Cook mixture over medium heat stirring constantly until sauce becomes thickened and creamy. Bring to a boil and boil one minute (can add more milk or water if needed). Season with a few splashes of Worcestershire and white pepper. Serve over toast or biscuits.
