Recipe Wednesday: Tsegna Zigni (Spicy Beef Stew)

Hello folks!

It’s another Recipe Wednesday and we are glad to see another week to serve you with fantastic dishes from all around Africa.

This week, we are in the Eastern part of Africa, in the largest city of the  capital of the country also known as ‘little Italy’.  We are in the city of Asmara, well known for its modernist Italian architecture. To see more and explore this city, click here.

Our recipe today is called Tsegna Zigni, which in English is a spicy beef stew.

If you like to try new things like I do, whip up your cooking tools and let’s get to work!
