All 5 members of my American family loved this! Even my southern husband (who worried when he saw the recipe was Ethiopian) loved it. Instead of curry powder, I googled and found a recipe to create my own Berbera spice blend. I also used left over roast beef, and just reduced the cooking time since the meat was already cooked. This recipe is going into my permanent file :)
