Nigerian suya is a very popular Nigerian street food snack. It is simply skewered meats covered with a spicy peanut spice mix and roasted to perfection. Beef or Chicken can be used for Nigerian Suya. I already have a recipe for the chicken version, click HERE to view it.
500g Boneless Beef (Sirloin Steak preferably)
1/2 Cup Suya Spice
1/4 Cup Vegetable Oil
1 Seasoning Cube
Soak your Skewers in water for at least 12 hours. This process ensures that your skewers do not burn during the grilling process.
Wash your meat thoroughly and slice against the grain into thin pieces. You’ll need your Beef slices to be as thin as possible for fast and even cooking. Then, cut into small strips..
Loop your beef slices onto the skewers…
Now, arrange the skewered meats in a deep dish or a tray. Then pour some Vegetable oil into a bowl, add the seasoning cube and mix thoroughly…
Then, with a brush, brush some oil on all the meats, ensuring they are well coated. The oil helps the Suya spice stick to the meat so be sure to be thorough…
Now, dust the oiled meats with the Suya spice, you’ll need to give each meat a good pat down with your fingers to ensure it sticks well, then set aside..
When all the meats have been covered with the spice, arrange them on an oven rack…
Now, place them in a preheated grill or oven, you’ll need your oven set to 200 degrees Celsius and grill on each side for 13-15 minutes each. you may wish to drizzle a bit of oil on the Suya sometime during the grilling process so it doesn’t come end up too dry.
And it’s done…
