Old Timely Hot Chipped Beef

Old Timely Hot Chipped Beef, or S.O.S., as it's more colorfully referred to, is an old wartime recipe that veterans of WWII and people of the Great Depression made famous. When Americans needed a cheap way to stretch out the rations, this was one recipe they turned to. Traditionally, the dried beef dish is served in a creamy sauce over toast or potatoes. This recipe is similar, however, we recommend trying it as a dip with pita chips or crackers. Serve this dish for dinner or as a hearty snack. While it may not be the prettiest recipe you've ever seen, it makes up for it in flavor.


  • 1 package (2.5 ounce) chipped beef, finely cut
  • 3 scallions, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons parsley, chopped
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 2 ounces softened blue cheese
  • 1 cup jarred mushrooms, drained
  • 1/3 cup sour cream


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

  2. Rinse beef to remove salt. Combine all ingredients in a shallow Pyrex or oven-proof dish.

  3. Bake for 20 minutes. Serve on toasted bread or dip with crackers or pita chips.

I doubt that WW11 or Civil War veterans had blue cheese, cream cheese, sour cream or mushrooms but, boy, do they make this dish good or WHAT! The beef, scallions and parsley combined to make this recipe truly scrumptious and flavorful and something I would be extremely happy to serve to guests. We had ours on crusty and fresh Italian bread from our local baker and everyone in the family absolutely loved it!

My father used to make creamed chipped beef on occasion, though I don't remember him ever using blue cheese or a jar of mushrooms in his recipe. He did use some cream of mushroom soup, and it was normally served over toast. I like the idea of serving it as a dip, though given the size of the beef chips, I'd go for something large and sturdy for proper dipping
