Shit on the Shingle

There are a few versions of this classic recipe, but this one is close to what I grew up with. The main ingredient, dried beef, might be hard to find in some areas. On the east coast my mom would buy it at the meat counter. Now on the west coast, I can only find the Hormel brand in a jar (Walmart). Make sure you rinse meat under cold water prior to cooking to remove the overly salty taste.
