A Cameroonian Menu


Beef Brochettes

Suya I wasn't overly optimistic about this dish, as it got only mediocre reviews on the website where I found it, but I couldn't find another Cameroonian meat dish I wanted to make so I decided to give it a try. It was mediocre, indeed. Part of the problem might have been mine, I didn't marinate the meat for very long (and it requires you do it for several hours), and I used salt instead of the onion salt it required. Also, I grilled them on the George Foreman Grill (5 minutes for medium), rather than on the BBQ grill. But I don't think these kebabs would be very good in any case.

The recipe below will serve four people, if you have other sides.




Cut visible fat and discard. Beat the meat with a tenderizer. Cut into 1" wide strips. Place in a bowl.

Add sugar, garlic powder, ginger, paprika, cinnamon, chili powder, salt and peanuts. Mix well.

Thread the steak onto wood sticks, pushing the meat together. Place in a large dish, cover with foil and marinate in the fridge for a few hours. Brush the meat with some oil and grill.
