Berebere is the powerful spice mixture responsible for Ethiopian cooking's formidable allure. Chile, garlic, ginger, basil, and fenugreek are just a handful of the aromas you'll find within. And in that mixture, entire worlds of bouquets and perfumes emerge.
When this magic is applied to meat, otherwise everyday protein becomes mystical and dominant.
At Shega foods, the resulting heavily spiced beef tibs are paired with curried cabbage and a chile-tomato salad that's like lighting a firecracker fuse in your face.
The sour tang of injera bread is the final flavor element that makes the whole thing so craveable, you'll find yourself returning again and again to its charms.
