Creamed Chipped Beef

Creamed chipped beef, also known as S.O.S. (“stuff” on a shingle) pairs salty slivered dried beef and creamy gravy in an oppositional duet atop toast. It is an inexpensive dish, now scarce on restaurant menus, once a symbol of life in the army, where it could be breakfast, lunch, or dinner, and where S.O.S. was sometimes taken to be an acronym for “Save Our Stomachs.”
