  1. I love this stuff but to me the Worchestershire and seasoned salt ruin this classic recipe so as a personal preference I've always made this with just cream cheese green onions and dried beef (in a jar...don't remember the brand name). I don't rinse the beef just mince it. In this case I love the - Read more ...
  2. Really works better with shredded cheddar cheese and cream cheese (I do 8 oz of each). I was out of green onions and used dried chopped chives instead. I ran out of Worchestershire sauce and used Country Bob's instead (made it sweeter). Be sure and rinse the dried beef well to remove the extra salt. - Read more ...
  3. This is awesome!!!! I used about 1/2 amount of beef & rolled it in pecans instead of the dried beef. I also added some shredded cheddar cheese. Thank you!
  4. like other reviewers, i chose the carl buddig packaged beef over dried beef, although next time may try it with corned beef like r.t. did! also, i didn't have green onions so i added about a rounded tablespoon of finely minced onion instead. the worchestershire sauce & seasoned salt really give this recipe a nice - Read more ...
  5. Very good! I used Buddig corned beef about a package and a half and instead of making it into a ball I just put it in a bowl as a spread. Also added a little garlic powder. Served it with Ritz and Triscuits and everybody loved it even my brother who says he never likes - Read more ...
  6. I also tried using Carl Buddig sliced Beef instead of the dried beef and that tamed down the saltiness. And some chopped pistaschios instead of walnuts. I like both versions very much.:-)
  7. I added some shredded Sharp Cheddar cheese to this. I made it for a party in November and have been asked to bring it for New Years so I think it was a hit!
  8. Don't skip th eseason salt. It's the beef that's adding too much salt. If you rinse each piece of dried beef before you chop it up and then pat dry with a paper towel the saltiness is alleviated and this appetizer is a big hit. Takes a little more time but it is worth it.
  9. This was good but it was a little too salty. Next time I am going to skip the season salt.
