  • 5 pickles
  • 1 large onion

Cut the beef in cubes and set aside in a large bowl. Sauté the onions in a saucepan with a little sunflower oil until they are transparent. Remove the saucepan from the heat and add the onions into the bowl of meat. Slice the eggs finely. (For best results use an egg slicer). Dice the red pepper and pickles and add them into the bowl of meat.

You make the dressing in a separate bowl. Start by mixing the oil and ketchup, then add pepper, paprika, and salt. Pour the dressing over the meat and the vegetables and toss together. Try using the salad hands. They are great! Place the salad in the refrigerator for a few hours. The homemade Beef Salad is best served chilled.
