Prep
Cook
Serves 2people
Ingredients
2
large onions, chopped
1/4
cup canola oil
1-2
tablespoons berbere
3
ounce tomato paste (it comes in 6 oz cans, so 1/2 can)
2
tomatoes, chopped
1/4-3/4
cups water
minced ginger and garlic
3-4
pieces injera, torn into pieces
1-2
jalapenos or other hot green peppers, de-seeded and cut into thin strips
Salt to taste.
Directions
1.
Place onions in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook, covered, until starting to brown, about 5 minutes. Add vegetable oil and garlic paste; cook until fragrant, about 5 minutes. Stir in tomatoes; cook until softened, 5 to 7 minutes.
2.
Stir 1/2 cup water, dried beef, and berbere seasoning into the saucepan. Reduce heat to medium and cook until flavors combine, about 10 minutes. Continue cooking, adding 1/3 cup water every few minutes, until beef is softened and sauce is thick, about 20 minutes. Stir in kibbeh and salt.
3.
Tear 1 injera into palm-sized pieces; fold gently into the sauce. Serve beef and sauce over whole injera. Enjoy!
