"Colony Cookin'"



Browned Creamed Dried Beef with Biscuits

½ cup butter
½ cup flour
4 cups milk
2 cups cream
½ pound smoked dried beef, very thinly sliced
Add salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Melt the butter in a skillet and stir in the flour with a wooden spoon.  Cook over medium low heat, stirring constantly until it turns golden brown.  When the flour is browned, gradually add the milk and cream and stir until smooth and creamy.  Add the dried beef in small pieces and simmer on low heat for 5 minutes.  Taste for seasoning.  Spread this gravy mix over fresh baked biscuits.
