Our Favorite Quick, Easy, Cheap Meal

I just made this last night when we ran out of time to make hamburgers and french fries, like we had planned.

I was commenting on how this is the quickest, cheapest meal I make, and we all love it, when my son said, “You should share that on your blog!”

So here it is:

Creamed Dried Beef (adapted for a family of 12)

6 packets of Carl Buddig’s dried beef (2.5 oz packets)
1 stick of butter
8 T flour
5 c of milk
3 t worcestershire

Melt butter in a skillet. Shred dried beef and put it in the butter. Stir the flour into the butter mixture when the edges of the dried beef curl. Add the milk. Stir it until it is thickened like gravy. Add the worcestershire and salt to taste, pepper if you like.

Serve on toast.

We all really like this. It fills us up, and only costs about $10.00 or less!
