Suya Recipe


  • 500g Boneless Beef (Sirloin Steak preferably)
  • 1/2 Cup Suya Spice
  • 1/4 Cup Vegetable Oil
  • 8-10 Skewers
  • 1 Seasoning Cube
  • Onion slices
  • Tomato slices
  • Wooden or Metal/Iron Skewers
  • Cooking Brush (for oiling the meat)


  • Soak your Skewers in water for 1-2 hours.
    • Doing this 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.
  • Pour some Vegetable oil into a bowl, add the seasoning cube and mix thoroughly.
  • 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 brush it thoroughly.
  • 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..
  • After all the meats have been covered with the spice, grill them for 13-15 minutes each.

And boom! its done.
