How to Make Ethiopian Tibs Wet/Wat

In the last blog, I introduced you to Adane.

Here is another recipe that came out really delicious!! Really, really.

Tibs Wet.

Her instructions can be found here:



Here is what my process looked like.

I used the same spice combination, but made 2 dishes.

One with Beef and one with chicken.


Here is a picture of the 2 pans cooking.



Sorry, no pics of the finished product, I got too busy serving and eating :)

I served them with salad, yellow peas (Kik Alicha), and the Ayib (ethiopian cheese).

Ayib (Ethiopian Cheese) Recipe

Ayib is a fresh Ethiopian cheese that is actually pretty perfect to balance out a spicy meal. Sometimes, people use sour cream or plain yogurt to balance out the spices.

However, the perfect pairing is really make Ayib. 

I have had it served with Kitfo, or collard greens, but it is also just good on the side of any berbere based meal.

So, with Covid, I have been cooking a lot more at home and trying new things.

I have started to follow Adane on Youtube.

She is pretty amazing.

Her is her link to her Ayib recipe- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AC3KDTuHEr0

Her website is: howtocookgreatethiopian.com

However, I just tried to access it and had problems. Not sure what is going on with that.


In any case, her recipe was pretty easy, and it came out really good.

I like this recipe because it was simple and did not require any special equipment.

I did not need to use Vinegar, not did I need a cheesecloth or anything special. I just used a strainer/colandar.


Here are a few of my pictures:

  • started with 1 quart of Cultured Buttermilk
    • Red ginger Spices
  • simmered on low
    • Red Ginger Spices Ayib cooking
  • after about 40 minutes, you can see the water separated
    • Red ginger spices Ayib separating
  • I let it cool on top of another pot that contained cold water. I only did this, like her, to speed up the cooling
    • Red Ginger Spices Ayib Cooling
  • here is the final product, draining in my colandar, and ready to eat
    • Red Ginger Spices Ayib final
  • the quantity was small enough to finish in 1 setting with my family.

Good Luck. Share you pictures as well.

Ethiopian Coffee

For all the coffee aficionados, I am pleased to highlight our Trio of coffee, suited to please every palate.

All of our coffee originates in Ethiopia where it grows pretty much everywhere. However, for large consumption, they are grown on coffee farms.

All coffee starts out as green. The coffee is in the berries that grow on the plant. 

We import the coffee in its raw, unroasted state and make it available in various forms. Many home roasters prefer to obtain the coffee in its raw form to enable them to roast it in the comfort of their home. This is optimal for the Ethiopian Coffee Ceremony.

For others, they prefer to purchase coffee roasted, but whole bean. This enables them grind the coffee close to the time they plan to consume it. Nothing like a freshly ground morning cup of coffee. We roast the coffee locally ourselves.

For the majority of us, we prefer to get up and make a fresh brew that is already ground, this enables us to start our day quickly. This works great for me.

We offer all 3 varieties. Please check us out often.
