Berbere Spice Blend

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars
57k

"I love berbere spice, a classic Ethiopian spice blend, but it never occurred to me to make my own. Actually, authentic berbere spice would use whole spice seeds/pods, toasted, and ground. But I usually toast the spices during the cooking process. Berbere is one of the most delicious and versatile spice mixes ever."

Was awesome with Chef John's chicken recipe. Can't wait to try it with other meat combinations

Excellent rub for pork ribs.

I did not have lime and Tomato paste, so I substituted lemon juice and Heinz Ketchup.How the flavor of the sauce developed as it thickened. This is my new signature dish. Thank you for shari...

Delicious on eggs.

Love this!
