I don't think I've ever, in my life, laid eyes upon chipped beef. The
photo in Wikipedia looks like a somewhat more-aggressively-cured
version of Lebanon Bologna. I had always thought, and been told, both
by my father and also hearing from such sources as Julia Child (who
was not without military experience), that S.O.S. was made from
shredded corned beef. I could picture my late father eating this in
the Army and simply having no clue as to what he was eating, but Julia
Child? I'm surprised.
I assume the ground beef is to cut the salt content somewhat?
