Suya kebab instructions
- I usually soak the Suya sticks in cold water for at least 2 hours.
- Cut the beef into very thin fillets.
- In a bowl add ur beef fillets add ginger and garlic paste.
- Add ur seasoning, kuli kuli, chili powder,bell peper & onions.
- Marinate the beef for atleast 1 hour.
- Bring the skewers and thread the beef on the stick.
- Once the beef has marinated for 1 hour, set your oven to preheat for 10 minutes..
- Place the beef flat on the oven rack and put in the oven to roast.
- After 15 – 20 minutes, flip the beef to roast the underside as well.
- The length of time you’ll roast each side depends on how thick the fillets are.
- So total roasting time for both sides of the beef is 30 – 40 minutes.
- Rub some of the remaining groundnut oil on both sides of the beef.
- That's it enjoy.
It's not quite the grilling season in Northern Indiana. Suya is one of the them, although we called it Seree in Sierra Leone. It's basically spicy skewered beef that's made with a tomato and peanut blend. This dish originated in Nigeria and they call it the epitome of West African street food. The beef kabobs are very popular in Nigerian barbecue.
