    I didn't even notice this was a microwave recipe, so I made it on the stove. I too usually find this to be too salty, so I just soaked the beef in water for a minute and squeezed excess water out before chopping and putting in gravy. Came out perfect :)

    I only gave this a "Good" because it was terribly salty. I'm sure it was the brand of dried beef. Otherwise it was what I remember Ma making, except she always put peas in it. I will make this again and try to find a reduce sodium dried beef.

    I haven't made this for years and today my hubby suggested it. He had always liked this. I add a little worcestershire sauce for flavor. Great on a cold day.

    I like to add chopped onions and parsley. It is good over biscuits or toast.

    I love this recipe--I tried it the first time it was published--that issue of Quick Cooking is permantly bend open to this page.It's super easy and fast. I remember when Mom made this for us kids, I was the one to always stir the white sauce. As a kid it always seemed to take forever to thicken. This is fast and none of the extended stirring.
