Chipped Beef Gravy Over Mashed Potatoes

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure policy for more details.

Chipped Beef Gravy is a nostalgic recipe for me. I remember having it as a kid. At the end of the meal when all of the mashed potatoes were gone, we would sop up the remaining gravy with a piece of bread. This recipe definitely makes me think of my dad – I sure do miss him!

This Chipped Beef Gravy will melt in your mouth! It’ll be one of your favorite easy dinner recipes (like it is mine). I give this recipe it a 10 out of 10!

More than likely my mom taught me how to make gravy when I was growing up, but as an adult I’ve steered clear of making it. It’s intimidating. When I saw this recipe on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, I knew I had to give it a shot. Boy, am I glad that I did!

The rosemary really made this recipe! When I put the first bite in my mouth, it was so scrumptious that it literally melted my taste buds. Trent said it was also the heavy whipping cream (since I don’t normally cook with it). Either way, this recipe gets a 10 out of 10 in my book!

    I just made the basic version of this earlier this week! By basic, I mean butter & flour & milk & salt & pepper & the dried beef!! We grew up with it served over buttered toast. Love the old comfort foods on cold winter nights!!

      The basic version is what I grew up on too! It’s yummy either way! And I agree, it’s definitely a comfort food!

      Thanks for stopping by and joining the conversation Shelly!

      Also a favorite from childhood, good on leftover warmed biscuits too. I use my 3-3-2 white sauce recipe (3 tbsp butter, 3 tbsp flour, 2 cups milk, pepper to taste – no salt with dried beef).

    Followed the recipe but it ended up clawingly salty, even for my salt lovin’ hubby. I think I would use unsalted butter, half a jar of the chipped beef and taste, taste, taste, before adding any more salt. I would probably use a little less garlic powder as well, maybe 3/4 tsp. I liked the rosemary in it and the heavy cream have it a real richness. I need a do over! :-)

      Kim, I’m sorry to hear that the recipe turned out too salty for your family. I hope you will give it another try!

      Thanks for stopping by!

      Try washing the dried beef first, use paper towels to get off excess water.
