Dried Beef & Pecans Cheese Ball

This recipe is older than I am. (Dried Beef, really??)  It is the first cheese ball I ever attempted to make.  And it is so good.  I am a skeptical cook, but when I served this to my family prior to the Thanksgiving meal, it was devoured in 30 minutes.  Yup, that good!
