When roomie works, and if it’s a telecommuting day or a weekend, I have something hot for breakfast (or is it dinner?) waiting for her about half the time. Today after she got home she asked jokingly, ‘Where’s my breakfast ?’ So I popped some Pillsbury Grand Biscuits into the oven and made creamed chipped beef.
2 tbsp unsalted butter
2 tbsp flour
1/2 jar Armour Dried Beef, cut into quarters
Dash of cayenne pepper.
Make a roux of the butter and flour, toasting it to get rid of the floury taste. Add some milk and stir smooth. Add more milk, the beef and a dash of cayenne. Stir frequently until thickened.
Roomie asked questions about making the roux, noted the cayenne, and asked me to remind her where the dried beef is in the market. I think she may make it herself one day.
