The African way to BBQ is Suya – give the recipe a go to show off your global foodie credentials to your guests!

Whether at the beach, a party suya is the go-to celebration food for Ghanaians worldwide. Tender beef with warming spices and crunchy peanuts.


For the Suya Powder:

*Maggi cubes can also be substituted for all purpose seasoning or chicken seasoning


  1. Toast the peanuts in an oven at 150°C/ 302°F/ Gas Mark 2 for 45 mins turning every 10-15 mins. Blend the peanuts to a crumble and place in a clean dry dish cloth. Put a heavy weight onto the cloth to press all the oil out. Blend the peanuts with all of the suya ingredients to a powder consistency.
  2. Marinate the beef with the Rapeseed oil, all-purpose seasoning and the ‘rub rub’ seasoning and allow to marinate overnight.
  3. Skewer the beef with onions and peppers and cook on the BBQ.
  4. Finish by coating the skewers with the suya powder.
