Army SOS

Since this pretty much goes along with the gravy thread, this is my favorite SOS recipe I have found.   I have tried a lot but this one is a hit!  Even the picky teenagers scarf this down!

“In the Army, this ground beef dish flavored with Worcestershire sauce is traditionally served on toast, but it also goes well over egg noodles. Add sautéed onions, mushrooms, or bell peppers to vary the taste.”


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cube beef bouillon
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper
  • 2 1/4 cups milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce


1.Brown beef in a large skillet over medium high heat. Stir in flour, bouillon, salt and pepper. Sauté all together for about 5 minutes or until
flour is absorbed.  Gradually stir in milk and Worcestershire sauce.  Bring all to a simmer, stirring constantly.  Cook until thickened, about 5 to 10
minutes. Serve hot!

Easy Chicken Gravy

I love this recipe! It’s very basic and easy to adjust to whatever you feel like adding. Now, what I do is use 2 cups hot water mixed with 2 teaspoons chicken soup base (not the dry bouillon … that was nasty. The paste you buy in jars). Turns out better than the instant chicken gravy packets and is much cheaper, especially if you are like us and want more than just a cup of gravy.

Mexican Gravy

We had an inexpensive Christmas dinner this year.  I made this recipe, then added about 2 cups of mashed beans to thicken.  Put in a bowl, sprinkle with cheese, use as a dip, and you almost have a complete meal!  We also had beans and home made rotisserie chicken.

Chili Gravy (from Robb Walsh)


  • 1/4 cup lard (or vegetable oil)
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1-1/2 tsp powdered garlic
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano (Mexican oregano is preferred if it’s available)
  • 2 T chile powder (either homemade or a dark brand such as Gebhardt’s or Whole Foods)
  • 2 cups chicken broth (or water)


Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in the flour and continue stirring for 3 to 4 minutes, or until it makes a light brown roux.

Add all the dry ingredients and continue to cook for 1 minute, constantly stirring and blending ingredients. Add chicken broth or water, mixing and stirring until the sauce thickens.

Turn heat to low and let sauce simmer for 15 minutes. Add water to adjust the thickness.

Makes 2 cups.
