  • 2 ounce jars of Armour dried beef
  • 6 English muffins, split or bakery bread, toasted
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 -3 cups milk


  • Shred the beef into bite-size pieces and place in a colander. Run the shredded beef under hot water for about 30 seconds to remove the salt from the beef.
  • In a sauce pan, melt the butter then add the beef stirring for about two minutes. Next, add the flour and stir until incorporated, about 2 minutes Then add the milk slowly stirring to thicken your gravy. If you prefer a thinner more saucy gravy add more milk.
  • Once the chipped beef and gravy has thickened to the consistency you like, serve it over toasted English muffins or bakery bread.
