Army SOS Creamed Ground Beef

Rating: 4.13 stars
1029

My aunt used to serve this to her husband, a retired Army colonel, and she said he never got tired of it!

USMC SOS

Rating: 4.24 stars
103

My dad was in the Marine Corps and remembers eating this dish often. It's a simple recipe consisting of ground beef mixed with milk, margarine and beef broth. It's also good using ground sausage. Serve this dish over toast.

All-American Chips and Dip

Rating: 4.22 stars
9

This fun spin on chips and dip is perfect for any Memorial Day, Labor Day, or Fourth of July celebration.

Easy Pleasy Mac N Cheesy - US Navy Style

Rating: 4.62 stars
308

I deployed with the U.S. Navy on the USS Enterprise, and it was there I had the best mac and cheese of my life. I've spent a number of years trying new recipes to produce the mild, thick and creamy version we were served. After numerous attempts and fails I came up with this. It's so simple and just like we got weekly while we were haze grey and underway.

Navy Potatoes

Rating: 4.05 stars
21

This is my father's recipe for potatoes that were served aboard the battleship USS New York during WWII. This recipe is simple, but very tasty.

The Rocket

Rating: 4.13 stars
8

A cold drink that looks--and tastes!--like a rocket ice pop!

US Marine Corps Martini

Rating: 5 stars
2

The US Marine Corps was founded in Philadelphia on Nov. 10, 1775 in a tavern during the American Revolutionary War. The name of the tavern was 'Tun Tavern.' There is an exact replica of Tun Tavern at the Marine Corps base in Quantico, Virginia. It was at Quantico in this Tun Tavern that the US Marine Corps Martini was born over 50 years ago. It has been made and served all over the world. Is it a killer martini? More on that later. It is sometimes referred to as the 5-4-3-2-1 Martini. To your health and good cheer! 'Freedom is not free, but the U.S. Marine Corps will pay most of your share.'

Scrumptious Sauerkraut Balls

Rating: 4.67 stars
61

The perfect party finger food. These are the most scrumptious sauerkraut balls you will ever taste!

Venison Bacon Burgers

Rating: 4.8 stars
238

These tasty, juicy burgers make a change from normal beef patties.

Creamed Beef for SOS

Rating: 4.37 stars
155

A Recipe that is always requested from my kids when they come and visit. I spent 20 years of my 28 years in the Air Force in the dining hall. I think I have perfected SOS (Creamed Beef).Very simple and quick. Serve over toast (Shingles) or biscuits or hashed brown potatoes. I know leaving the grease in is not real healthy but it really makes it tasty. If you use anything other then HAMBURGER or drain the grease it will not turn out.

Bistecca alla Fiorentina (Tuscan Porterhouse)

Rating: 4.6 stars
20

This flagship, Tuscan steak is made from the region's Chianina breed of cattle which are prized for their tenderness and flavor. In typical Italian style, simplicity rules the day; little more than olive oil, rosemary, and salt are needed to highlight the rich flavor of the grilled meat. With Italian food, freshness and quality are top priority, so I use nothing less than choice porterhouse, and much prefer prime!

Coconut Tarts
Rating: Unrated

My Grandma used to send these to the soldiers in the Second World War. I've modified their sugar content as they used to be quite sweet.

Sausage-Stuffed Eggplant
Rating: Unrated
275

A local winery/restaurant serves a stuffed eggplant appetizer that is so delicious. While trying to duplicate it at home, I found this to be one of our favorite eggplant dinners. Be sure to select an eggplant that is smooth, blemish-free and kind of heavy for it's size. Serve with a green salad.


German Schwenkbraten

Rating: 4.59 stars
22

This was a family favorite when we were stationed in Germany with the Air Force. They are delicious with potato salad, a baguette, or crusty rolls. Hope you enjoy!
