This will surely tickle your taste buds.
Suyas…which are somewhat similar to Americans’ shish kabobs are one of those delicious snacks Nigerians love. You can turn them to a meal when you eat them with Garri (cassava), corn, or a side of rice.
Here is how to make your own tasty suyas.
– Suya spice or Suya pepper
– Canola or Peanut oil
– Suya sticks or skewers. (Note, thick chopsticks will work well too)
- It is best to soak the Suya sticks in warm water for at least 2 hours before use. It avoids the sticks getting burnt while roasting the Suyas.
- Cut the beef into thin fillets or buy some at the store.
- Now put the fillets of beef on the Suya sticks
- Next pour some peanut oil into a bowl. Add a small amount of salt and stir.
- Use your cooking brush to rub the oil on the fillets; it helps the spice stick to the meat.
- Spread the suya spice into a wide dish. Roll the fillets around the bowl so they are fully covered with spice.
- Place the spiced beef in a flat plate, cover with a thin plastic film, and allow them to marinate for one hour.
- After marinating, set your oven on Grill and preheat oven at about 300°F.
- Place the beef flat on the oven rack and put in the oven to roast.
- After 15 to 20 minutes, flip the beef to roast the opposite side too. The length of time for each side will depend on the thickness of the fillet; so, allow more time, about 2-5 minutes if needed.
- Rub the some peanut oil on both sides of the beef. Increase the oven temperature to 375°F and roast either side of the beef for 5 minutes each.
- Allow suya to cool. Serve and enjoy.
