Key wat is an Ethiopian style stew that is typically prepared with freshly ground spices plus chicken, beef, lamb or a variety of vegetables. The cornerstone of this dish is a spice blend called berbere spice, a deeply flavorful, spicy blend of cumin, cardamom, coriander, and fenugreek, garlic, cloves, turmeric, ginger, black pepper, paprika, cinnamon, and dried red chiles. These spices are all toasted and freshly ground and is similar to how garam masala is used in India.

This dish can easily be made in a slow cooker or on the stove top with a heavy bottom pan or dutch oven. Key wat is traditionally served family style over a spongy flatbread called injera, now famous globally but brown rice or quinoa are also great substitutes. Enjoy!
