Berbere is an Ethopian spice mix with chili peppers, cardamom, ginger, fenugreek, allspice, and pepper (might have other spices, depending on where you buy it). It is incredibly fragrant, a bit spicy and delicious on meats. Rubbed unto a steak is one of my favorite use for it.
I served it with oven roasted vegetables and mashed potatoes.
1 steak per person
4 red tomatoes
2 bell peppers
4 garlic cloves (or 1 purple garlic clove)
1 red onion
4 red potatoes
2 tea spoon Berbere spices
1. Pre-heat the oven to 375C
2. Cut the onion, bell peppers, tomatoes and garlic in chunks. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Mix well to ensure all the vegetables are mixed and covered in oil then put in the oven for 60-90 minutes.
5. make sure the steaks are about room temperature. Use a paper towel to dry the surface. Then grind about 2 tsp of the berbere spices. Rub a bit of olive oil on the steak’s surface, then rub in the spices. For more meat you might need more spices.
