  • 1 tablespoon chicken Bouillon
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil to drizzle on the meat

  • Soak the skewers for at least 20 minutes totally submerged in water before using it to prevent burns. You may skip this part if pan grilling.

  • Grind roast groundnuts in a coffee grinder with skin on, until finely crushed. Add the ground peanuts into spice mixture. Or skip this part and just use peanut butter.
  • Pat the steaks dry with a paper towel. You want to have a completely dry steak before cooking. Slice the steak into a diagonal medium thin shape,
  • Thread the steaks onto the skewers about 4 per skewer. Making sure the skewer is fully covered with slices of meat
  • Rub the steak skewer with spice mixture; on both sides.

  1. Sirloin, chuck roast, and rib-eye roast are the best selection for skewered meat. 
  2. When selecting meat, select those that are tender, fatty, and beefy and you can easily cut into uniform shapes. 
  3.  Eliminate cayenne pepper if making for kids.
  4.  You can make this with or without ground peanuts or peanut butter. Tossing maybe ginger? Thyme?  Using fresh ingredients to give it a personal touch.  Feel free to experiment.
  5. Please keep in mind that the nutritional information is a rough estimate and can vary significantly based on the products used in the recipe.
