How to Make Creamed Chipped Beef on Toast

  1. Start by thoroughly rinsing the dried beef slices as they tend to be quite salty. Once rinsed, pat them dry with a paper towel.

  1. Add the flour and a pinch of cayenne pepper to the melted butter. Whisk the mixture until well combined and cooked through, which should take about 45 seconds.
  2. Gradually pour the milk into the saucepan while whisking continuously.
  3. Once all the milk has been added, include the chopped dried beef to the pan.


  1. Cook the mixture, stirring occasionally, for a few minutes until it thickens.
  2. Taste the creamed chipped beef and season it with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper according to your preference.
  3. Serve the creamy beef on top of toasted bread immediately and savor every delicious bite.

Indulging in a bowl of creamed chipped beef on toast is like taking a trip down memory lane.
