packages dried beef
minced (3 ounce each)
green bell pepper
shredded sharp cheddar cheese
In a medium bowl, cream together the softened cream cheese, Worcestershire sauce and garlic powder.
Set aside ¼ cup of minced dried beef.
Fold in the remaining minced dried beef, finely minced red onion, finely chopped green bell pepper, shredded cheddar cheese, and ¼ cup of the chopped pecans.
To form the cheese ball, lay out a large piece of plastic wrap.
Scoop the cheese ball mixture onto the plastic wrap and use the plastic wrap to gather the cheese ball into a round ball.
Chill in the refrigerator for a minimum of 1 hour before coating the cheeseball with the remaining pecans and dried beef.
To coat the cheeseball, combine ¼ of the minced dried beef with the remaining pecans.
Hold the cheeseball in one hand and press the pecan, dried beef mixture into the outside of the cheese ball.
Serve with crackers of your choice.
Make sure the cream cheese is room temperature.
Finely dice the onion and green pepper. Smaller is better.
Chill the cheese ball, wrapped in plastic wrap, in the fridge for at least an hour before pressing the pecans and extra dried chipped beef. It will be easier to handle.
For smaller cheese balls, divide the cheese ball mixture in half and make 2 smaller cheese balls.
