The first step in Suya making is for you to cut the beef into small sizes. The sizes would depend on how big you want it to be. However the smaller they are, the easier they will be to cook.

2: Soak the Suya stick:

A secret ingredient I will give you when making your Suya is for you to soak your Suya stick for about two hours. This will prevent it from getting bun when making your Suya. You can do this before like two hours before you start making your Suya avoid it delaying you unnecessarily.

3: Thread your beef:

After soaking your Suya stick and cutting your beef into small size, the next thing is for you to thread the beef into the Suya stick. This will involve you arranging like 6-7 pieces of meat onto a stick depending on how long your stick is.




4: Add your Groundnut oil:

After threading your Suya onto the stick, take an empty bowl and pour a little bit of Groundnut oil. Add a pinch of salt and stir well. This step will help the spice to stick well to the beef.

5: Add Suya spice:

After completing the step above, the next thing is for you to add the Suya to your beef. When doing this, you have to make sure the spice surrounds the beef. So a solution I would give you is to pour the Suya spice into a flat tray. After that day, each Suya sticks inside and makes sure the spice covers the meat well.


6: Marinate:

This step is very important to allow the beef to absorb the spice. You can leave for about an hour to marinate. You can also put it in the fridge if you want. This can help to marinate your beef.

7: Arrange into the oven:

After marinating, put foil paper on the oven racks and arrange your beef carefully on it. The setting of the oven should be about 150°c to 300°c.

8: Roast your beef:

After about 15-20 minutes of roasting, flip the beef to the other side and roast it again. This is important to make sure all the parts of the Suya are fried. The amount of time your Suya will spend in the oven will depend on how thick the beef is. The total amount of roasting shouldn’t exceed 40 minutes to keep your Suya eatable.
