This is a old school classic than many US Armed Forces will remember. Served over toast traditionally, but may be served over biscuits, hash browns, or even pasta. Add a couple of fried eggs on top for a hearty breakfast or dinner. I have not had this since 2005, I made this last night on 22 Sep 2016 and was pleasantly surprised, excellent taste, easy to put together. My photo of it plated, no need to really take step by step photos for this, and my comments below.

Instructions
  1. The fat from the ground beef adds flavor to this, do not drain that off. However, if you use minced pork, drain the fat or this will not work out well.
  2. Heat a large non stick pan over medium high heat, add the ground beef, chicken bouillon, garlic powder, black pepper, and onion powder. Cook and stir until the beef is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink, about 7-10 minutes.
  3. Stir in the flour and stir constantly for 2-3 minutes, add the milk and continue stirring and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to low and add a little bit of mace or nutmeg, the flavor will be correct when you just start to taste the mace or nutmeg. Then simmer for about 5 minutes to thicken, it will thicken fast. Serve over toast, biscuits, hash browns, or even pasta. Top with a few fried eggs for a complete and filling meal.
Recipe Notes

Ground beef would cost about 150 Baht/500 grams, minced pork runs about 70 Baht/500 grams. For beef, this is about $1.10 per serving for 4 servings, if using pork, this is about 52 cents per serving.

Variants. Add a can of stewed whole tomatoes and break them up with the spatula, this makes Red SOS (in US Armed Forces, this would be called Train Wreck). Replace the minced beef (or pork) with chipped beef for Creamed Beef. Another option is to omit the beef and make the white sauce and then use a can or two of drained tuna.

For leftovers, stuff some bell peppers, top with cheese, and bake in a 180 C oven for 30 minutes or until the cheese is golden brown.

  1. I made this on 22 Sep 2016 and was very happy with the results, nothing short of excellent! The mace or nutmeg is vital for this dish, great flavor. I wasn’t thinking when I started this, I used 1 kilo of ground pork instead of 500 grams, so I doubled the entire recipe, no problem really, now I have a few more additional meals.

    I used mace instead of nutmeg, excellent flavor. And I used evaporated milk instead of regular milk, excellent results with that as well. This dish thickens quickly, so just add more milk as need to keep the consistency you want. As you can see I plated mine over thick cut toast and topped with 2 fried eggs as well. Highly recommended and on my go to list.
