Happy new month my fellow foodies, I can’t believe we are in the second month already. Today’s recipe beef  kebab or stick meat could pass for a snack or brunch. Typically, it is eaten in Nigeria as beer-mate after a stressful day, mostly a reward after a long day at work or served at as small chops at parties. Valentine is around the corner and this beef kebab (stick meat) 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). Truth be told, this beef kebab is not just about satisfying your man’s belly but yours too, it a recipe for the whole family.
