Last week I was really busy and needed a few meals that I could quickly prepare without a lot of fuss and of course something cheap.
I always tell people that if I didn't have a family of 5 to feed then I'd be rich and that couldn't be more true now with the price of groceries going through the roof.
Anyways my bunch really liked this and yes I cheated and used canned biscuits though homemade would definitely have tasted better.
I also used the dried beef that you can get in the small pouches located in the meat dept. You will also find it in a jar located with the canned goods but I find that the jarred stuff is way too salty. So if salt is an issue for you then go with the pouches.
Dried Beef Gravy
10 oz. sliced dried beef, cut into small pieces
5 tbsp. butter
1 tsp. onion powder
6 tbsp. flour
4 cups milk
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. paprika
In a large skillet saute the dried beef in the butter.
Sprinkle with the onion powder.
Let cook 3-4 minutes.
Sprinkle the flour over the beef, stir and let cook for another minute or two.
Pour milk in and add seasoning.
Stir well and let simmer on low until thick and bubbly.
Serve over toast or biscuits.
