Chipped, Creamed and Minced Beef Recipes

Every military cookbook published since the start of the Nineteenth Century has a recipe for at least one SOS dish, including Chipped Beef, Creamed Beef or Minced Beef.

These recipes are offered as I found them in the cookbooks. They only thing I have done is to list the ingredients in a table for easier reading and to use standard abbreviations for weights and measures. Cooking instructions are as they are found on the original recipe.

Here's a selection:
