Originally intended as a geographically appropriate main course to serve with a batch of Jollof rice, this incredibly flavorful West African-style skewer quickly became my new favorite beef marinade.

How to Prepare Suya

Below is the comprehensive suya recipe, along with some chef’s notes:

The secret to the entire process is peanut butter, which may not be the first ingredient that comes to mind when thinking of traditional meat marinades, but it truly shines in this recipe.

Perfect caramelization: To be honest, I was a little skeptical when I first tried it because I was afraid the peanut butter would burn on the hot grill. Burnt nuts don’t taste good. However, it manages to caramelize and brown beautifully rather than burning. Sure, I thought this looked fantastic, but the flavor and texture were even better.

Taste that appeals to a crowd: The flavor is distinct, yet it also feels cozy and familiar. I mentioned in the video that grilling brings back memories of some of my favorite foods from some of my favorite places, and I plan to do it again soon.

In addition, I would like to try the more traditional approach, which substitutes ground peanuts for peanut butter. However, I thought this version was fantastic in the interim. I sincerely hope you will try it shortly. Have fun!
