Armour has a blue label.  Stouffer's is good albeit on the expensive side in my opinion.  Making it yourself is the way to go and you get twice if not more than with Stouffer's.

    There was a good thread a few years back w/ the differences between chipped beef and SOS.

      Please post the thread if you can find it.
      My guess would be Chipped beef is just that--Contains Chipped Beef.
      SOS could be made with any meat-- like the Navy & Marines use ground Beef.

        Ok, I'm a retired Navy guy. SOS the real SOS is the chipped beef kind. All of the breakfast "gravies" however fall under the term SOS. I was on 1 ship that had some sort of SOS every day. There is the chipped beef kind, sausage, hamburger (white) chopped hard boiled eggs, have even seen ham and bacon. Then there is the above mentioned "minced beef" in a tomato sauce and this is good stuff. It's about one step away from pasta sauce, hell you could serve it on pasta. Key thing in it, is nutmeg.  I still love any of them, but the real SOS remains my favorite.

          Auxguard, if you're still looking for S.O.S. in CT, then I have the place for you: Bush Meadow Farm in Union, reviewed here on the site.  Barry doesn't make S.O.S. every weekend, but I dropped in once last year when he had and wrote a logbook on it:



          From my logbook: This old-time military staple (which stands for S**t [or the more polite Stew] On a Shingle) was different from the creamed chipped beef that my father & I would eat at American Legion breakfasts when I was growing up in South Carolina. Barry’s version was ground beef in a cream gravy that was gray with black pepper, heaped over home fries. It was delicious, just as he assured me it would be. The eggs with a slice of Swiss melted on top and, of course, homemade rye toast were grand as usual, and Barry even included a slice of creamy goat’s-milk feta cheese from a batch that he had just finished. Oh, if Bush Meadow were only closer to my house!

          Call ahead and talk to Barry or Nancy -- I bet you could convince them to make it for you!  They also have a nice, new website here.  I really can't say enough good things about the place -- I love it and I wish we lived closer!    Chris

            I have a copy of the 1910 U.S. Manual for Army Cooks.  There is a recipe for Beef, chipped (for 60 men)

            It has chipped beef, butter, flour, canned evaporated milk, parsley, pepper and beef stock.

            I am guessing that this is what became known as S.O.S.

                I have never seen parsley in SOS.

                  Even Stevens (a diner) in Berlin, CT has it on sundays. FYI

                    I wonder if this is still the case.  I'm sort of terrified that I'll walk in and ask for it, and they'll look at me like I have leprosy.  Gonna try this Sunday, though!

                      I'm a fool for good creamed chipped beef and make my own, seasoned with a little Vegetable Magic, fresh black pepper, and L&P (UK).  If there were a Chipped Beef Cook-off, I'd sign up.

                        I might have posted this some time ago, but I'll try it again -- learned at the kitchen table as my telegrapher dad taught me the code:
                         
                        Three dot, four dot, two dot, dash,
                        They serve it in the army and they call it hash.
                         
                        Sure, that's right, that's exactly what it means.
                         
                        I'll vote for the Stouffers too, it's pretty good, and the best I can get since my wife got tired of making it for me (years ago!), which meant I would do it, or Stouffers would.
                         
                        It's sort of thin -- I like to add some small things, like maybe shaved ham, sautéed onion and/or pepper -- nothing drastic.  The hard-cooked eggs sound like they could work, once in a while.

                          Right. Three dot, four dot, two dot, dash is what they put on a shingle.

                            Might have been the worst dish my mother made at home while growing up...I hated it....think she served it because we didn't have much money.  Definitely would not order this no matter who or where they made it at.

                              I hadn't eaten this since I was a kid (my Mother's was really good) so when I saw it on the menu at the Summit Diner in Somerset, PA I ordered it and it was very good.  We have Stouffer's in the freezer but I never tried it and probably never will.  Too easy to make your own.

                                Even my mother, whom we in the family called Lucretia (for Lucretia Borgia) behind her back because of her cooking, which we all expected would kill us one day, was able to make edible creamed chipped beef.

                                    Yep.  It wasn't a special either, it's on the menu.

                                      If it is as good as everything else we ate there, it would be worth a return trip. Besides, the Laurel Highlands is a particularly beautiful part of PA. I do want to explore more of it.

                                        The Wind Mill Diner in Danbury and New Milford offers creamed chipped beef.  I had it recently and it was not that good.
