“Kitchen Confidence 101”

By Sandra Reames,

Veterans Day!


This isn't a cry for help!


All of us know that SOS is an emergency cry for help, especially in the Armed Services.


This is the nick name given by service men in all of the armed forces for what we knew as creamed beef or white gravy and Hamburger. 

Actually it is a white sauce or rue made with sweet milk.


Make a paste over heat of butter and flour, cook stirring then add milk and continue to cook until thick, add a cooked meat.

The way my Dad remembered it was made with dried beef, which you can still buy in the grocery.  Others told me that their branch of the service made it with cooked hamburger.


Over the years of making it for my self and reunions that I have catered I have used many types of cooked meat. Ham, chicken, hamburger all do well.


When the sauce is thick and the meat is heated threw remove from fire and serve over a biscuit or over a piece of toast.


What does SOS stand for here, you will have to use your imagination.


Thank you Veterans, we could not have the lives that we lead now if it wasn't for you.
