My thoughts
This recipe was inspired by Nigerian beef suya. Now I hadn’t heard of this until I made this recipe, yet this mix I make quite along, just without the peanuts. This made it an obvious stand out recipe for me. The combination was easy and palatable to any guest. This make great leftovers and is visually pleasing when presenting to your dinner guests.
