This sounds almost identical to the cheese ball my mother used to make each year. One helpful taste addition to this receip with the dried beef is WORCESTERSHIRE sauce! It really adds a zing to the flavor. Note that this type of ball improves with age, so make it a few days ahead of when you want to eat it.

THIS IS A GREAT CHEESE BALL! IF USING DRIED BEEF IN THE JAR, RINSE AND DRY THE BEEF BEFORE MIXING INTO CREAM CHEESE. THIS HELPS CUT DOWN THE SALT!! THE BEST!!

Great cheese ball recipe. I make something very similar to this but I omit the walnuts and add a tablespoon of worcestshire sauce. Someone else mentioned that this gives this a "zing" and I agree.
