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.

My mom used to make big batches of this except she'd replace the chipped beef with diced hard-boiled eggs and then add a spoonful of miracle whip. As a kid we loved it when Mom made creamed eggs on toast for supper.
