    The REAL qusetion should be, Where can I find homemade chipped beef in Ct.
    Your going to be a little hard pressed to find it anywhere these days.

      I doubt you're going to find it anywhere in New England
      Chipped Beef seems to be more of a mid Atlantic thing (Delaware/Pennsylvania/Maryland)

      I haven't seen it anywhere here in Rhode Island

            Could be at your house. Easy enough to make and then you know you're not getting the powdered stuff.

            12 oz. Chipped beef
            12 oz. Heavy cream

            1. Simmer the chipped beef in the cream until the cream reduces by 1/3.

            2. Grab some toast or bisquits.

              Add some dried mustard, bit of Cholula, Worchestershire sauce, and some black pepper and I think you'll have something. But, I'd rather use whole milk and some flour to thicken the sauce before adding the meat.

                I have to agree, Mr.Hoffman-I am getting a reputation for good creamed chipped beef, and what you describe is pretty much how I make it..

                  I must say, it's the way my wife made it. I'm pretty good, but not that good.

                      I did find a spot that has it on their daily menu.
                      The Owl Diner in Lowell Ma. I usually get the ham with my breakfast there, but I may try the chipped beef the next time.
                      Lowell is a city that still supports about half a dozen diners and all are pretty busy. The Club diner has Biscuits and Gravey on their daily menu and serve a french style baked bean. So if you ever get up that way for a Spinners game it's worth checking out.

                        Until recently They were serving out the Chipped Beef and gravy you'd dream of in a little marina kitchen known as the "docksider" restaurant in Westerly, RI- I had been eating it there for 20yrs, and like most things, its time came- only to be replaced by a mediocre lunch spot with no SOS! I look forward to hearing what people find- fortunately I find myself in places where it is available often enough and my mother is a master- having learned from hers... I would suggest Evaporated milk, which gives richer flavor, and as I understand was the traditional base for the gravy as it is also canned.

                          Best SOS, by far is the Navy's! Just something about, being miles out to sea, getting off that mid-watch, going to the mess decks and have some SOS, with a couple sunny side up eggs.

                            I just had perhaps my favorite ever SOS in Layton Utah at Sils Cafe.  The whole family loved it and agreed.

                              I wonder why us westcoasters miss out on all the good things.

                                    When I was in the ANG back in the early 60's, the ANG had great SOS at Lackland AFB.  I did not particularly enjoy basic training but I did OK due to my prior training at the University of Tennessee in ROTC.
                                     
                                    Since then, I have made SOS many times but I have found Stouffer's SOS very good.  I buy it very frequently and have it on toast a couple of times a month.

                                      Here is the menu for Four Sisters Owl Diner.  I see that it does indeed list creamed chipped beef on toast!  I've never had that in a restaurant.  I think I will make a stop there next time I am in Massachusetts.

                                        If I'm not mistaken, I believe Most Navy Cooks and Marine Cooks make it with ground beef, not Dried Chipped Beef.

                                          If the Dried Chipped Beef is hard to find you can use Budding Beef Luncheon Meat. Not quite the same, not as salty, but a decent substitute.

                                            Fishtaco....I agree it was the best....
                                            Yes, they made it both ways....Also made an SOS that had a tomato based, spice flavor called Minced Beef....This was made with ground beef....I loved them all....Wish I had the
                                            recipe....

                                                  Don, I only see the smaller jar around here. And even it is kinda hard to find. :~(

                                                      Interesting.  I've never seen either.  Either I just looked over them or we don't have them here.  

                                                      I'm now on a mission.

                                                        I've only ever seen Armour Brand Chipped Beef. Have never seen Hormel anywhere.
                                                        Here's the Official Creamed Chipped Beef Recipe from Armour's web site:
                                                        Creamed Chipped Beef
                                                      • 2 Tbsp. butter
                                                      • 2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
                                                      • 1 1/2 cups milk
                                                      • 1 2.25-oz. jar ARMOUR® STAR SLICED DRIED BEEF, rinsed, chopped
                                                      • 1/2 tsp. prepared yellow mustard
                                                      • 8 slices white bread, toasted Melt butter in saucepan. Add flour and cook 1 minute.
                                                        Add milk all at once. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly.
                                                        Add beef and mustard and heat through.
                                                        Serve over toast with a side of ARMOUR® STAR CORNED BEEF HASH.
                                                        Makes 1 1/2 cups

                                                          Marlene,
                                                            In SoCal We shopped Stater Brothers Markets most of the time, and a Von's now and then. Both had the Armour brand version of the Hormel jars you see posted.

                                                          It's funny how common Biscuits anf Gravy are all over the South, but SOS seems to be an unusual menu item. The two are very closely related,IMHO.

                                                            Funny you should mention. I use Pioneer Brand Sausage Gravy Mix for making both Sausage Gravy, ( I add more cooked ground sausage to it) AND for making S.O.S.!

                                                            Pioneer makes Quality products. I also use their Buttermilk Pancake & Biscuit Mix to make my Biscuits
