Homemade classic Creamed Chipped Beef


1 ) Melt the butter in a large sauté pan over medium-low heat. Sprinkle in the flour.

2 ) Whisk to combine, then allow the raw taste of the flour to cook off for a few minutes – whisking occasionally.

3 ) Whisk in milk. Continue whisking until no lumps remain and “gravy” is smooth. Reduce heat to low. Switching to a large spoon or rubber spatula, stir in the beef. Season with nutmeg and lots of black pepper. Taste and add salt, as needed {the beef is usually quite salty, so beware}.

4 ) Serve over buttered toast or mashed potatoes. Additional milk can be whisked in – as needed – if your gravy becomes too thick for your preference.
