“This version of the old standby gets a little extra flavor from chicken broth and parsley. Soaking the beef reduces the sodium content to quite a bit less than the Nutrition Facts indicate. Serve over your favorite biscuits, or toast will do in a pinch.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut or tear dried beef into small pieces. Soak dried beef pieces in very hot water for 10-15 minutes to remove excess salt. Drain, squeezing out as much water as possible.
  2. Meanwhile, stir up your favorite baking powder biscuits and get them in the oven.
  3. Melt the butter in a 2-quart saucepan. When the butter is bubbly, add the flour and stir constantly for 2-3 minutes to cook the flour.
  4. Add broth and milk. Continue to stir constantly until sauce thickens.
  5. Lower heat. Add parsley and drained, dried beef. Stir until heated through.
  6. Take your biscuits out of the oven and split 2 or 3 onto each plate. Spoon on the Creamed Chipped Beef. Goes great with a green salad or green vegetable.
