Spicy Mixed Beef Kebab and Plantain…

Happy new month my fellow foodies, I can’t believe we are in the second month already. Today’s recipe could pass for a snack or brunch but typically, it is eaten in Nigeria as beer-mate after a stressful day, mostly a reward after a long day at work. Valentine is around the corner and this recipe can grace your table on a date night. It is spicy and full of flavour and would definitely give your man that same feeling he gets when out and about with friends at their cold drinks spot. This is a sure bet of having him at home at those times (wink).

Things you need (serves 2-3 adults)

600g mixed beef (I used goat meat and beef shoulder)

2 medium size red onions

1tsp curry powder

1tsp curry thyme

2 seasoning cubes (I used knorr)

2-3 Scotch bonnet chilli


3 tbsp veg. Oil

2 cubed size Ginger

2-4 cloves garlic

Vegetable oil for frying plantain


Boil meat until tender with 1 seasoning cube, half onion, curry, thyme, ginger, garlic and salt.

Drain meat from stock when done and grill in the oven on high heat till dried/golden brown

Process in a blender/ food processor on pulse one and half onion and scotch bonnet chilli, garlic and ginger if using

On a medium heat, add vegetable oil to a wok/ shallow pan

Add blended onion and chilli to hot oil and stir (keep the heat on a low medium, burnt onion taste can be quite bitter)

Add grilled cubed beef

Add seasoning and salt according to taste/preference

Stir until all is well combined

Serve with fried plantain

How to fry plantain

Peel plantain and slice into desired thickness (I seasoned with pinch of salt, ginger and cayenne pepper)

On a medium heat, place a frying pan, Pour about 500ml vegetable

Carefully put plantain one at a time in the hot oil until but do not overcrowd the frying pan.

Fry until golden brown

Turn plantain to the other side to ensure both sides are cooked
