For a complete Ethiopian feast, make this dish with (other recipes from my book): - Lentils of Doom - Cabbage of Ostracism - Tofu Dorowat (if you like tofu, or are accommodating a vegetarian... chicken otherwise) Making these four dishes together, you can: - Pick up one large white onion and chop it finely. Split it four ways between the dishes. - Pick up one 28-oz can of crushed tomatoes and split it between the Dorowat and Beef Stew Start the beef early, then the dorowat. Then, do the lentils (assuming pre-cooked potatoes) and cabbage. Pick up some Enjera (that amazing yummy bread). Live in Calgary? Pick it up fresh at Amy's Confectionery on 7th between 11AM and 5PM. YUM!

This is one of my favorite dishes. Could this be made in the crock pot with similar results? I can no longer get fresh Injera, however I have some Teff flour (thanks to a local co op that ordered for me) I will be making my first bread and introducing lots of people to this delicious dish.
This was a hit! I couldn't find fenugreek, so I had to substitute the same amount of ground mustard. Great flavor, wonderful with homemade injera. Two thumbs up!
This was a great dish but I can't rate it as it is read because I tweeked it a little here and a little there. I can say this............you must have injera bread to be able to fully enjoy this type of dish. I didn't have the fenugreek seeds 'cause I couldn't find them. Still a great and unique flavor and spice that clears the sinuses without overwhelming the pallet.
