Hi Tracy! I love chipped beef - haven't had it in years. Where do you find the dried beef? My mom always used packages of beef lunch meat. Thanks!!

Hello, Vicky! You can find the dried beef in jars in the grocery aisle alongside tuna, canned chicken, turkey, and ham, sardines, and other meats like that.
