My husband loves chipped beef. He loves it served over buttered toast. He buys those frozen dinner packages and has them for lunch. Actually, I refuse to buy them for him because of the high sodium content. So, talking to a good friend one day, I lamented about how I wish I could make him from scratch chipped beef. Well, lo and behold (as my Mom used to say), she had a recipe. I’ve never purchased dried beef before so she told me you can find it close to the tuna and canned chicken. There it was on the top shelf. This recipe for Week 12 of the 52 Week New Recipe Challenge was a big hit with hubby.
