Ethiopian Berbere Beef Tibs

Ethiopian Berbere Beef Tibs

Beef Tibs 

We have shared this recipe many times. It is a Thirteen favourte for sure. Most frequently we have shared it through cooking workshops with OCDSB for teachers PD day training and then recently we joined a food and culture class at South Carlton highschool. 

This dish is great to serve at a party or as part of a family meal with other great Ethiopian recipes to eat along with your Injera. Also pictured is how we served it individually portioned at our recent AGM.
