Ethiopian raw beef dish what doctor ordered if you’re low on iron

When Ethiopians need an iron health boost, they don’t turn to supplements – they eat kitfo, says Bebeta Asfaw.

Kitfo is a traditional Ethiopian dish that consists of marinated minced raw beef and is usually eaten with a sourdough-risen flatbread called injera.

Ms Asfaw, who owns and operates Cafe Abyssinia in Mt Roskill, said kitfo was also somewhat like “a happy meal” in Ethiopia.
