  • 500 g beef
  • 4-5 tbsp of Yaji spice
  • Salt to taste
  • Sunflower/Vegetable oil
  • 1 onion
  • 2 to matoes


  • Preheat oven at 175C/347F. Start by preparing the beef. Soak skewers in water for 30 minutes. This will prevent the skewers from burning when in the oven. Chop beef into equal sized chunks.
  • Add suya spice to a bowl. You may need to add salt to taste to the suya spice as some do not contain salt.
  • Then, coat each beef chunk in suya spice and add them to wet skewers (as shown).
  • Pat or drizzle oil on the beef and grill for 25-30 minutes or until done. Make sure you turn the beef halfway through.
  • Finally, serve as with suya spice, tomatoes and onions.
