US Navy Minced Beef on Toast

You will find the US Marine Corps recipe for SOS on the cooking page of my web site. This is the US Navy version. We all know that the Marine Corps is part of the Department of the Navy, not part of the Navy. If the Marines were part of the Navy, they would be the best part by a long shot.

US Navy Minced Beef on Toast

The ingredients are:

1 1/2 lb Ground Beef 2 medium Onions, chopped Salt & Pepper to taste 5 tbsp Flour, approximate Cooking Oil, as needed 1 can Whole Tomatoes, dice, 16oz undrained 5 1/2 oz Tomatoes Juice 2 cup Hot Water, approximate Ground Nutmeg to taste Sugar to taste

The recipe yield is:

10 Servings


Crumble the ground beef into a skillet and brown with the onions. If beef is very lean, add a tablespoon or two of cooking oil. Salt and pepper to taste. Add flour a tablespoon at a time, stirring and cooking each spoonful, before adding the next. The flour must be cooked to preclude a starchy taste through out. Add enough flour to absorb the most of the oil. Stir in the tomatoes and the tomato juice, followed by the water. Allow to simmer on low heat to thicken. Adjust consistency as necessary. This recipe should be your basic meat sauce in a gravy of medium thickness. Add nutmeg, about 1/2 t, and perhaps sugar, 1/2 t, to adjust taste. In the NAVY this is served over toast at breakfast. It's also great on hot dogs!
