  • 600 g assorted meat (beef, abodi, tripe)
  • 5 tbsp suya spice (contains salt)
  • 1 pinch peanut oil
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 pinch ogarlic powder

  • Mix groundnut oil, salt, and garlic powder in a small glass bowl.
  • Brush the meat with the oil mixture.
  • Distribute the suya spice on a flat surface.
  • Rub the meat skewers on the suya spice.
  • Place the skewers on a tray lined with aluminum foil.
  • Wrap the tray with cling film and marinate for about 45 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven between 120°C to 150°C.
  • Cook one side of the assorted meat in the oven for 20 minutes.
  • Cook the other side for another 15 minutes.
  • Garnish the dish with onions and suya spice!



  1. Soak the skewers in water for 30 minutes to 1 hour to prevent them from burning in the oven.
  2. Brushing the oil with the oil mixture helps the suya spice stick to the meat properly.
