TLW's Chipped Beef on Toasted Muffins
This dish has been a home staple forever. We have always served it over toasted Thomason Muffin halves and with canned (never fresh) asparagus (not sure how the asparagus tradition started but the combination works). Two things must be done to get this dish out of the ordinary: 1. A 4.5 oz jar of Armour's Dried Beef contains 1375 mg of sodium and must therefore be washed. 2. The sauce, made of just roux (butter & flour) and milk, is flat to a fault without serious seasoning--just pepper won't do it. So we have:
See Abbreviations, if needed
1 jar (4.5 oz) dried beef
Note. Here is a modernist (non-roux, non-butter) sauce: 1.5C whole milk, 10 grams Wondra flour and 2 grams xanthan gum. Whisk all together thoroughly and bring to simmer and continue to Step 4.
