Dried Chipped Beef Dip

Hey, y’all! If there’s one food that I love (or that I’m known for), it’s dips. Today’s recipe is a very old-school recipe — but, it’s delicious and has certainly stood the test of time in my family: Chipped Beef Dip. While the name might sound offputting to some, it simply uses chipped beef (or dried beef). It’s not as common of an ingredient as it used to be, but when used correctly, it packs a flavorful punch. This recipe stems from my Auntie JJ — and is a part of a larger series, #CookingLikeJJ, which you can read more about here.

I always purchase Armour brand, which you can find in most major supermarkets. I take it out of the jar and dice it up.

About the Series: Cooking Like JJ

My Auntie JJ was the quintessential southern woman. She was classy, tasteful, always refined; an amazing cook and hostess; and did everything that she balanced – teaching, running businesses, raising a family, and keeping an immaculate home – with ease. She is one of the main inspirations behind JCP Eats, as she was the one who taught me about timeless, southern food and entertaining. When JJ passed away, I planned this series as a way to pay homage to her 91 years here on Earth; in a way, it’s a form of mourning – in another, it seems like my final gift to her. I hope y’all will enjoy this deep dive into the culinary archives of my family + Phelps Acres Farm. While I’ll never be able to cook as good as JJ, I can only strive to cook like JJ (hence the title of the series). Learn more here.
