    (2 1/2 ounce) jar dried beef (located on the canned meat aisle in the grocery store)

DIRECTIONS

  • Soften the cream cheese to room temperature.
  • Use your food processor to finely mince the dried beef.
  • Use your food processor to finely mince the green onions (white bulb and green stalks together).
  • Add the beef, the onions and 1/4 cup of pecans to the cream cheese and mix well.
  • Form into a ball.
  • Roll in remaining chopped pecans.
  • Refrigerate for at least one hour (but it's even better if you make it the night before and let the flavors blend).
  • Note: I've also made this by making the cheese mixture and adding 1/2 cup pecans instead of 1/4, then used it to stuff celery sticks. That was a hit too!
