I have posted a recipe for a very flavorful Berbere will be wonderful in this lovely dish affectionately known as Tibs.

This delicious stew is flavorful and quick and easy to prepare.

If you have everything ready this dish comes together quickly. The clarified butter gives it a more authentic taste. I hope you will enjoy!
