Recipe Info

2 pound ribeye steak, trimmed and cut into thin slices
1 small onion, chopped
1 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary leaves
2-3 t fresh ginger, minced
5 cloves garlic
2 t berbere spice blend
1 t salt
2-3 T olive oil
1-2 T melted butter
½ cup water
1 cup fresh chopped tomatoes

Purée or mash the fresh ginger and garlic into a paste. In a bowl, mix together the steak, onion, rosemary, ginger, garlic, berbere and salt. Place a pan on medium heat. Add the oil and butter. When the pan is hot, place the spiced meat and onion mixture into the hot pan and cook for about 5 minutes.
TIP: Do not stir the meat right away. Let it sit in the hot pan for the first couple of minutes to brown on the bottom. Also, make sure you use a wide-enough pan so the meat does not steam. Steaming also prevents browning.
Add ½ cup water and cook for another 5 minutes. Taste for seasoning. Add fresh chopped tomatoes, and cook for 2-3 minutes more. Serve with rice, or with injera (which can be purchased from a local African market).
