"This recipe is something similar to what my Dad used to eat when he was in the Merchant Marines. As a kid I couldn't stand it but,now it reminds me of my Dad. :)And yes,the chipped beef in a jar is super salty,but the method that I use pretty much gets rid of a lot of the salt. Now there is salt in the recipe,but this way you can adjust the salt level to whatever you like.The prep time includes the method I use to get rid of the salt.I prefer this over toast,but you can serve it over whatever you like.
