Next, it’s time to make the cream sauce. Start by melting the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Once the butter has melted, add the flour and whisk until it’s smooth. Cook the flour and butter mixture for about 2 minutes, whisking constantly. This will help to cook out the raw flour taste. Slowly pour in the milk, whisking constantly to prevent any lumps from forming. Continue to whisk until the sauce has thickened and is smooth.

Step 3: Add the Dried Beef

Once the cream sauce has thickened, it’s time to add the dried beef. Add the beef to the saucepan and stir until it’s fully coated in the cream sauce. Simmer the beef and sauce for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. This will help to ensure that the beef is fully cooked and the flavors have melded together.

Step 4: Season and Serve

Finally, it’s time to season and serve your cream dried beef. Taste the dish and add salt and pepper as needed. Then, serve the cream dried beef over toast, biscuits, or rice.
