Very tasty! I wasn't sure at first what jarred smoked beef was but finally figured out it was what I call dried beef. I assumed since the onion was to be softened in the sherry that it was supposed to be dried onion, so that's what I used. I also used neufchatel cheese and light mayo. I was a little short on green olives (only had about 2 Tbsp) but just used what I had and thought it was fine. The only change I would make next time is maybe a little less sherry. I enjoyed with crackers but am going to try other ways later! Thanks for sharing!
