  • salt, pepper, caraway, sweet paprika powder
  • cooking oil

  2. Cook for another 2 minutes, stirring constantly, after adding crushed garlic and a cup of chopped parsley. Allow to cool.
  3. Combine the minced beef, sautéed veggies, eggs, and spices to taste in a mixing bowl. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours (or overnight).
