Best Dishes Beef Tibs

What makes the fried chicken at your favorite Southern kitchen irresistible has nothing to do with tricks—just generous seasoning and a vigilant eye on the fryer. Think of that and order the beef tibs at this restaurant/bakery. The pan-fried meat is perfectly seasoned, crusty, and tender on the inside. This is what Dama does—takes familiar dishes and gives a little more attention to the seasoning and the stove.
