All the authentic Ethiopian recipes that I found during my weeks of research always called for Korerima - a black cardamom that is not to be confused with the green cardamom that one finds in ordinary grocery stores. Black cardamom has a more earthy and smoky flavor that fans of Ethiopian cuisine will instantly recognize. Truly a must-have spice for lovers of Kitfo and other Ethiopian specialties!
