Last Friday I went to Mariano’s for the first time to get some ingredients to make my favorite comfort food. You can see my whole shop on my Google + album. Let me tell you, though, I fell in love with this store! It’s so clean and well laid out. They have a ton of organic fruits and vegetables and other items. Their prices are pretty competitive and I love that they have a full meat counter and bakery. They also have a juicing station, small bar where you can get sandwiches, a salad bar and they juice fresh orange juice in the store; it smells awesome to walk by the juicer. I even signed up for the Mariano’s rewards card which only took about 2 minutes at their kiosk; it was very simple. The only downside for me is that #MyMarianos is 35 minutes from my house.
My favorite comfort food growing up was always S.O.S. I’ve found that it’s also called chipped beef, but seeing that I use ground beef instead of chipped beef, it doesn’t seem right to call it that. I haven’t attempted to make this in years. It reminds me of my mom and I miss her lots. I don’t know what came over me, but while I was making the recipe this time I thought I’d try to use coconut flour instead of regular flour; yeah, don’t do it. Apparently coconut flour absorbs all liquid so while I had a gravy for about a minute, it all disappeared as if it was never there. I’m giving you the right recipe below.
- 1 pound Ground Beef or Sirloin
- 1 teaspoon Morton's Nature's Seasons
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1/4 cup flour
- 1 cup milk
- 5-6 pieces of toast
- Brown your ground beef in a skillet and sprinkle it with Nature's Seasons seasoning blend.
- Once brown, melt your butter in with the meat.
- Sprinkle the flour over the meat and mix in until flour disappears.
- Slowly add milk to your mixture and cook until sauce thickens.
- Tear up your toast on your plates and serve meat mixture over the toast.
