Suya Ingredients

Suya made from beef – There are many ways to make suya, but the key ingredient is high quality meat. I try a lot of different cuts, but I use the best quality meat I can find at the market. I use mainly sirloin and chuck roast. It’s best to use tender, fatty, beefy meat that is easy to cut into uniform shapes.

Peanuts – Roasted peanuts have a distinct nutty taste that distinguishes authentic suya. If you are allergic to peanuts, almonds and sesame seed can be substituted.

Spices – Garlic and onion are great additions to peanut sauce and make it irresistible.
