This cannot possibly be the Tibs recipe from Meskerem. I have eaten at that restaurant and this is just not even close. Even though I used all authentic and fresh ingredients including fresh spices and it was not horrible but it did not reflect ethiopian cuisine. Also usually this dish has more of a sauce. This was moist but did not really have a gravy.

I have to say, unfortunately I did not like this recipe at all. That does not mean its not good, its just not the way I would like to use my lamb. I would have to suggest for others to really think about your tastes before you try this recipe. Anywho i end up adding more ingredients (like rosemary) and using it as meat for tacos and disregarded the dipping sauce. It was actually very good. foodmama

yah, just not the real thing. Wish I'd read the reviews BEFORE preparing the recipe. What I ended up with was... okay, I guess. But, it was entirely disappointing because it wasn't at all what I was suspecting.

This was excellent -- served this with Injera and Ethiopian Tomato Salad for a really awesome meal.

Excellent! I halfed the recipe and cheated on clarifying the 1 1/2 cups butter since I had already clarified butter ( called ghee in indian cooking) in the fridge. I melted 1/2 cup ghee together with 1/2 t turmeric, 1/2 small crushed garlic and 1 cardamom pod and used this for cooking. Served with injera and a cabbage salad.
