- Stir in the sherry and onion mixture.
- Place 6-9 ounces of dried beef in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped.
- Stir in 3-4 ounces of dried beef to taste into the cream cheese mixture.
- Add 1/4 cup of finely diced olives to the mixture.
- Shape the mixture into a ball and roll in the remaining dried beef.

Unless you are planning to use a mixer, it helps to allow the cream cheese to warm to room temperature.
The olives get mushy when you chop them in the food processor so it's best to chop them by hand.
