This is an official Marine Corps recipe.
Chef Noah H. Belew
Upon joining the United States Marine Corps in the early 1940s, I was introduced to a breakfast dish that I had never had before. It's called Chopped Beef on White Toast. Most of us called it S.O.S.

2 tablespoons oleo or butter
1 cup chopped onion
