Nigerian Suya

One of the nigerians most delicious and interesting delicacy is the Nigerian suya, and it is really easy to make. Nigerian suya is literally sold in every part of Nigeria and outside Nigeria.

here is a simple recipe on how to make nigerian suya

you will need:



suya spice(pepper)

ginger powder

maggi cubes,




I start by soaking the Suya sticks in cold water for at least 5 hours. This ensures that the sticks do not burn during the roasting of the Suya. Cut the beef into very thin fillets, thread the fillets of beef on the Suya sticks Putting the beef on sticks is optional though.

Put some groundnut (peanut) oil in a bowl, add a small quantity of salt and stir. Using a cooking brush, rub the groundnut (peanut) oil on the threaded fillets of beef. This is what helps the Suya spice stick to the meat.

 spread the suya spice and dab the threaded fillets of beef in the spice so that the beef takes up as much of the spice as possible. All the beef should be covered with the Suya spice when it is ready.

Place all the spiced beef in a flat plate, cover with a thin plastic film and leave to marinate for 1 hour. put beef in the fridge to marinate but the Suya which is (optional). Once the beef has marinated for 1 hour, set your oven to preheat for 10 minutes. The settings should be Grill at 150°C or about 300°F

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. Increase the oven temperature a bit and roast either side of the beef for 5 minutes each.
