The dried beef is salty and I always rinse the beef under cold tap water and dry between paper towels. I do this for any recipe that calls for dried beef. There's really no other way around the salt and it doesn't affect the real beef taste for the recipe. Read More

I hate to be the spoiler here but I wasn't crazy about this recipe. It didn't taste bad but I left out the onion juice and it was still VERY VERY oniony. Also maybe you're supposed to rinse the dried beef (?) but I didn't and the cheese ball was extremely salty too. The appearance isn't all that attractive either. If you like onions a lot you should try it but I'd rinse the beef and tear it into very small pieces to look better. Read More

I make a version of this every year but never thought of adding green peppers. I used other suggestions and cut back on worchestershire sauce and used liguid smoke instead of onion juice. Also added a little garlic powder. I meant to roll it in bacon pieces but forgot to. I put a few drops of orange food coloring in it for a Halloween Party and shaped it like a pumpkin. It was excellent. I will use this from now on. Read More

I was looking for this recipe because my aunt used to make this cheese ball every Christmas. It can be very salty so adjust for your taste. It's best if the beef inside the cheese ball is torn pretty small. Everyone loves this cheese ball but it does take a few tries to get the salt content right. Read More
