The "beef spice" looks a lot like coriander, and a similar recipe from a famous chef does use it. Possibly a mix of coriander and cumin.

yes it looks like coriander but it is different I think the beff spice is a mixture of Cardamom , cloves, curry and Cinnamon .

Hi Sara. Thanks much for the more detailed explanation! Do you know the ratio of cardamom, cloves, curry and cinnamon? Is it about 1 to 1 on each?
