Awaze Tibs

By Dawit Ashinay

This recipe is from my grandparents and it has been passed down through the generations of our family. In my country, my family owns a well known restaurant called “Axum” and this is one of the main dishes that we serve in our restaurant. I would like to share it with everybody and my hope is that everyone will love it. This recipe is very simple to make and easy to prepare.
