Yield: 4 servings
Although many Eritrean dishes are highly spiced (they are doing a number on my digestive system), this one is flavorful, but not very spicy.
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 onion, finely diced
1 tomato, finely diced
2 cloves garlic, finely diced
½ teaspoon berbere
1 pound top round beef, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
1. Melt the butter in a large frying pan. Sauté the onion until it is golden.
2. Add the tomato, garlic, and berbere. Stir.
3. Add the meat and sauté, stirring often, for about 10 minutes. The liquid will evaporate and the meat will be flavored with the vegetable mixture.
4. Serve with bread or injera.
