The first time I made this, it had a lot of heat. However, the second time I made it, it was not so bad. I really love this stew. I used sweet potatoes the second time around and it turned out great.
I have now made this twice and LOVE it! I put sweet potatoes instead of regular potatoes, which made it sweet and spicy at the same time. The second time I also threw in some chicken thighs and let it simmer for an hour. It made it a complete meal with protein.
This is delicious! The first time I made it, I didn't have any Niter Kibeh, but it still tasted wonderful with plain butter. The second time I made it, I used Niter Kibeh but reduced the quantity to 2 tbsp. Thanks for a great recipe!
I love this recipe, but want to disclose that it is from the Sundays at Moosewood cookbook.
I made the Berbere (#140767) and the Niter Kebbeh (#140755). Once those were in hand, this stew was very easy to put together. Instead of carrots (Had none) I used peas and corn with the string beans and diced tomatoes. Quite spicy but not overpoweringly so. I really enjoyed this. Thanks, Evangelia!
This is very tasty and very easy if you have berbere and niter kibbeh ready. It is only slightly less easy if you need to make them first. It's VERY spicy but flavorful and satisfying. I had good results substituting a 15 oz. can of diced tomatoes for the chopped tomatoes and tomato sauce. It is also good served over rice if you don't want to make injera (teff pancackes).
