I do. Provided you're using the chipped beef. It's not the same with hamburger. 

 

Brief history of SOS:

Temped to check the freezer aisle today, and see if I can pick some up.

The old style Army beef for me, either over toast or baking powder biscuits.

 

That's as wrong as two boys [email protected]#$ing:

 

"Creamed beef (it’s still AFRS recipe card number L-30) now calls for very lean ground beef with less that 10 percent fat. The roux is also history. In keeping with advances in the civilian market, Army food service specialists and Navy mess management specialists can now serve creamed ground turkey to the crew. Reiher said both the beef and turkey versions are identical except for the addition o garlic powder to the turkey. (He says no garlic for me.)"

Yeah, that's bullshit. Ground beef does NOT taste the same. 

 

I'm gonna check my grocery store for this. It looks pretty close.

I really enjoy that variety of Stouffers SOS. It is carried in my local grocery, and I have it regularly. I get strange looks from people about it from time to time. Ironically, I almost never saw it in the DFAC while I was on Active Duty.

I've made it with ground beef a couple of times (never seen chipped beef in a grocery store here).  It's OK.

Love that stuff over potatoes.  Love SOS, my mess hall in Germany in the mid 1980's made some of the very best ever.

Good stuff found in the local grocery stores, just look in the dried/canned meat area next to the Tuna, etc.

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be sold here in the Great White North.  Nor is SOS normally served here to my knowledge.  It certainly isn't a Canadian Army food at all - unless dining on American rations.

Since it has cooled down I have been making a cousin of SOS for breakfast, biscuits and sawmill gravy with sausage. I like mine with lots of black pepper. I make a big batch of gravy for the week, then I just get those premade biscuit dough in a can and just pop them in the oven and microwave some of the gravy I made. Makes for a relatively quick and hearty breakfast. Pretty cheap too.

That was easy.  I would add a little less milk, but not much, so I might have to try that myself this weekend.  It is also good over English Muffins, hash brown potatoes, or the ever traditional toast.

In college, I roomed with one of my best friends from my home town (went to school, K-12 together).  He'd sometimes make what his mom called "gravy meat".

 

The first time he made it (and served it over toast) I said, "Oh! This is shit on a shingle!" :D

Since I can't cook--I store the dog's food in the stove as it keeps out the mice--I picked up some Bob Evans chipped beef cream gravy after reading this thread. Will try it out on toast tomorrow am.

I do sausage gravy every once in a while.  I brewed some up for this thread.  Over an English muffin and scrambled eggs, it's quite good without so many carbs.  S/F.....Ken M

Old style Army beef?

At least as rumored by one of my grandfathers.

 

Since my old man served in the Navy, my mom made SOS a number of times, and I enjoyed it. I probably couldn't choke it down now, however.

 

As for Spam, it is a critical strategic logistical supply. Because if they ever stop making it, Hawaii and Samoa will secede and the USN will be without essential deepwater ports.
