Doro Wat

So I stopped in at the spice store a couple weeks back to refill my kosher salt and I got to browsing (as one does at the spice store) and a bag of berbere caught my eye. Berbere is this awesome Ethiopian spice mixture that has a sort of smoky chili powder flavour. The doro wat sauce is essentially a ton of onions, butter and garlic with 2 tons of berbere and then reduced on the stove. Oh and red wine, so picture that on your palate
Pro Tip: If you’re not slow carbing do your self a favour and get some injera flat bread to go with this.
