For boiled shin of beef

  • 500 g beef (shine or brisket)
  • 1 onion (small-sized)
  • 1 pinch mixed herbs
  • 1 pinch curry powder
  • 1 pinch garlic powder
  • 1 pinch turmeric
  • 1 pinch ginger powder
  • 1 pinch all-purpose seasoning
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 1 cube knorr chicken

For the pepper sauce

  • 3 tbsp sunflower oil (flavored with the fried meat)
  • ½ sweet pepper (finely chopped)
  • 1 scotch bonnet
  • 1 tbsp meat liquid stock
  • 1 pinch curry powder
  • 1 pinch mixed herbs
  • 1 pinch all-purpose seasoning
  • 1 tbsp onion (from the boiled shin/brisket)

For garnish

  • ½ red bell peppers (equally diced)
  • ½ green bell peppers (equally diced)
  • ½ yellow bell peppers (equally diced)


Prepare the beef.

  • Slice the beef into small chunks, rinse, and place them in a pot. Without turning on the heat, add the onions and seasonings. There is no need to add water, so proceed to cook the beef over medium heat until tender.
  • After 20 to 25 minutes, check the meat by piercing it with a fork. Set the onions and beef stock aside. For the beef, you can either grill or fry it.
  • For grilling, arrange the chunks on a baking tray and cook them in the oven at 200°C for up to 20 minutes. On the other hand, fry the beef in a pot with hot oil and once cooked, transfer the chunks into a lined plate to drain the oil.

Cook the sauce.

  • Heat cooking oil or the oil from the fried beef in a pot. Then, sautee the sweet pepper and scotch bonnet. Pour in the beef stock and season with curry powder, mixed herbs, and all-purpose seasoning.
  • Next, incorporate the onions from the beef stock. Toss in the grilled or fried beef and mix it into the sauce until fully coated. Let it simmer for 2 minutes and set it aside.

Prepare the bell peppers.

  • Rinse, de-stalk, and deseed the bell peppers.
  • Dice the mixed bell peppers.


  • Pierce the beef and bell peppers into toothpicks or skewers.
  • Arrange them however you prefer. Place them on a plate and serve!



  • If you don’t have skewers or toothpicks, serve it on a plate with sauteed bell peppers and drizzled sauce.
  • Consume up to 4 ounces of meat on a daily basis.
