Suya is a spicy skewered meat, which is a popular food item in Western Africa. It is traditionally prepared by the the people of Nigeria, Cameroon, Niger, Ghana and some parts of Sudan.
Have you ever wanted to make your own homemade suya but can’t seem to lay hands on a good recipe? Well, the secret is out! Precious Kitchen has released an exclusive recipe on how to make suya with tasty homemade spice!
Check it out below:
- 1 pound beef – top sirlion steak 1/2 kg
- 4 tablespoons homemade suya spice
- 2 tablespoons oil of choice – I used canola oil
- 1 large onion cut into big slices
- Bamboo skewers
1. Soak bamboo skewers in water at least 30 minutes before preparation.
2. Cut meat into very thin and flat slices. If your cut of meat is not thick enough, you may cut it into chunks instead.
3. Place meat in a bowl and add in suya spice and salt. Note that you may or may not need to add salt depending on how salty your suya spice is. So be sure to taste the spice before deciding whether extra salt is needed. Mix thoroughly to ensure that the spice coats the meat all over.
4. Place 3-5 slices of meat on each bamboo skewer, placing a slice of onion after every piece of meat.
5. Brush the skewered meat generously with oil.
6. Place them on a tray lined with aluminium foil and generously greased with oil.
7. Grill in a 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) oven for 20 minutes – 10 minutes on each side. Half way through the cooking, flip skewers to the other side.
1. You could omit adding the onions to the beef if you prefer.
2. If you like, you could add chunks of bell pepper to the skewers.
