Kulu'wa (Eritrean Chopped Meat)

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Nif_H

A lovely Eritrean coworker of mine brought this to work for me the other day. She served it on injera and it was wonderful! It's spicy but not too spicy and has lots of texture from the beef. She barely speaks a lick of English so I wasn't able to get her recipe. I searched for one and this sounds like the same one. This version is adapted from Taste of Eritrea by Olivia Warren. You can also us Tegelese Tesmi (Eritrean Herb Butter) for the butter. Enjoy!

This was too bland for us personally, but then I'm used to getting African food from a local restaurant. ZWT7.
