Wash the beef and parboil with the four seasoning cubes, a teaspoon of salt, teaspoon each of curry and thyme and half cup of sliced onions.
Also add the chicken spice.

Allow the meat to cook until it is soft enough for consumption.
Remove the meat from the stock and allow to drain in a sieve.
Set your frying pan on fire.

Add the half bottle of vegetable oil and fry the meat until it is golden brown, then remove it and drain on a paper towel. Add the sliced onions to the oil and fry for about 2 minutes to release the aroma into the oil.
