Kebat is new to me. I read about it in Burma Superstar (excellent book, buy it) decided to make it and oh my. This is good. Better than good, awesome.

Delicious steak, soft but crisp onions, juicy tomato, beautiful spice blend with a bit of kick to keep you company. Try this once, and you’ll be making it again and again and again and…..
