Last night I made our very favorite dish: Zilzil Alecha (or: Ethiopian Beef).
3 medium green bell peppers
4 teaspoons serrano chiles, finely chopped
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh ginger, finely chopped
1/2 tablespoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
1/4 cup dry red or white wine
1/2 cup butter or niter kebbeh
2 pounds sirloin steak, boneless
2 cups onion, finely chopped
Basically you'll need good beef, butter, onions, green peppers & hot peppers, and some spices. I like to use sirloin beef from Aldi (which seems to be much thicker and more tender than your average grocery store thin steak - don't laugh!). Dice the onions & green peppers, and assemble the spices.
Put 2 of the green peppers, a hot pepper, some garlic and the spices (mainly turmeric), and wine in a blender.
