This Chipped Beef on Toast recipe is not a new one, but its been modified slightly to make it taste even better. Its believed that chipped beef on toast recipes started to come about during World War I, when people didnt have a lot of money to spare but still had to eat. It very quickly became whats known as United States military cuisine because it was so cheap and easy to make in the mess tents. Even today, chipped beef on toast is often served to United States service men and women, and its commonly known as shit on a shingle in military slang, or perhaps more appetizingly: stew on a shingle. Truly, though, it tastes a heck of a lot better than it looks and a hot meal like this one was and still is greatly appreciated by hard-working soldiers, wherever they may have been or may be. If you remember the 1970s television show called M*A*S*H, it was often referred to when the main characters were eating in the mess tent!

The best thing about Chipped Beef in general is that it doesnt go bad. Its salted and well-preserved, and thats why its so easy to take on the road or out into the field for soldiers. So, today, its great because you can buy yourself a bunch of Chipped Beef knowing you wont have to throw it away if you dont eat it in the next few days. Wait a month or two, and as long as its stored properly - itll still be good to go. This new and much improved Chipped Beef on Toast recipe is made with a very special cream sauce one the soldiers in the first and second world wars would have loved to have had access to. The sauce is very similar to bchamel, and it gives a creamy, rich moistness to the otherwise dry meat. The salty taste of each complements the other, and it is all really quite succulent when its cooked and served in this way.

A little hint for you - this Creamed Chipped Beef recipe is best served with toast made from home-made bread. If you cant manage this, dont worry, but if you possibly can go for it!

And theres nothing like the taste of homemade bread either, especially when you toast it and pour this lovely Creamy Beef Recipe all over it. When the day is done, your tummy will be full and so will your wallet.
