I want the Marine Corps version. I'd never even heard of SOS when I went to boot camp and the first time I had it I thought I'd died and gone to heaven.

It's definitely polarizing. People either love it or hate it.

I think it all depended upon if it had chopped beef or sausage as well as how creamy the sauce was.

I liked it but then again I was only 18 years old.
I also loved ham hocks, blackeye peas and collard greens. Never had them before in NYC. lol

I also like grit now.

I have never heard of this, but it sounds pretty good to me. Glad I came across this.

Definitely going to have to give this a try. Might be an easy meal while RVing using the Instant Pot.

That recipe can't be right or official. One pound of meat wouldn't feed a squad, let alone a company or battalion.

In the Navy, in the '60's, our SOS always had chipped beef.

Chipped beef is better than ground beef, and for breakfast using breakfast sausage is is just wonderful on the ol’ taste buds.

We must have had this every day on the ammo ship I served on. Beef and potatoes every evening. Breakfast was good though, as many eggs as you wanted. Friend of mine was an HT that ran laps around the ship while underway, all day long when he wasn't working. Often saw him order a dozen eggs in the chow line.

Hah, I was in the Canadian Armoured Corps. many, many moons ago. During summer concentration( out in the field for 2-3 months), we used to get hard rations. In the box was bully beef. When we fired the main gun with blank ammo, the bully beef went out also. Some time TP for fun. Really had to clean the gun well after that, lol.

GLAD you all like this and brings back memories.

Some use ground beef
Some use dried beef in a can
Some use Italian sausage
Some add onion
Some add mushrooms

Yes butter makes the Sause creamier and doesn't get hard

I also like it and add a few drops of tabasco sauce.

In my part of the world, SOS is made with dried/chipped beef.

Anything with burger/sausage or any kind of ground wild game is Squirrel gravy.
Some old-timers called it sawmill gravy.
