When I was a kid I remember my grandpa’s favorite all time meal being SoS or $h.. on a Shingle. My Grandpa is a retired Mp from the old school army air core. Hes a man of honor and integrity and an an amazing leader for our family. Today this new take on an old military recipe is inspired by him.

As an ex cook in the US Army myself, its also my favorite meal that i learned to cook. However, it has gone from the creamy chipped beef to ground beef gravy. Ill be honest i love to make it more in a breakfast gravy fashion with ground maple sausage over a fluffy  scramble. But tonight i’m gonna go the extra and give you a fun different take on this old favorite.

Corn Hole SoS

Ingredients

  • Chipped Corned Beef
  • Flour- all purpose
  • Butter
  • Siracha
  • half cup heavy cream
  • half cup milk
  • Sweet yellow onion
  • Swiss Cheese
  • black pepper
  • bay leaf
  • chicken stock
  • Sour Dough bagel

 

You can crock pot the corned beef- for 8 hours on low with chicken stock, black pepper and a bay leaf.

For the cream, you want to start by melting and half stick of butter stirring in flour little by little until its an even sticky rue goo. Stir in cream and slowly add milk as need to  thin out.  Lower heat and Stir evenly not letting rue burn.  you can also pull heat back and cover reach thickening faster yet you want to keep stirring regularly for evenness. Season with salt and a couple good squeezes of siracha.

Cut and Caramelize onions in a separate pan with butter.

Toast a Sour Dough bagel and place a slice of swiss on top. Put grilled onions on cheese then top with chipped corned beef. Pour Cream over entirety of the open faced sammy and vwalla

The Corn Hole SoS!!!

Now I didn’t use specifics on the measurements because the truth is, and what every military cook will tell you is that even though we are taught by recipe, it was common to improvise and season by taste, that is when  we seasoned. Typical SoS was originally pretty bland as most military recipes due to  allergies and all the different taste buds you got coming through the defac on the regular basis, hooah.

I hope some of you will try this amazing take on our old favorite and maybe send some feedback over on how it went for you. The truth is i wasn’t able to go to the dust bowl and regret some of the choices that kept me from serving next to all my pals, i was so blessed and privileged to train under and with you, and today i salute you all along with my Grandpa Kit and my close fam and friends who served.

Happy Vets Day!!!!- TheFoodDude!!!
