Personally I installed Mac OS very shortly after DellEFI was introduced, so I still used the Boot123/Type 11 7.9 method documented here:
This was because at the time it was much better documented.
Also there was a very handy video walkthrough to go with it here:

I found it to be very simple and straightforward without needing a USB stick (which I don't have) and only needing an external DVD drive (which I do).
After doing that I just downloaded and ran DellEFI from the desktop of my newly setup Mini 9 running Mac OS to get all the DellEFI goodies that came with it.
Worked like a charm. I daresay if I were to do it again, I'd probably go down the same route, even though slightly newer ways may have started to appear, because it worked so well and was so clearly explained.
