Taalib Adanse Beef Suya Recipe Tropical Sun All Purpose Seaasoning

Whether at the beach, a party or celebrating Ghana Independence, suya is the go-to celebration food for Ghanaians worldwide. Tender beef with warming spices and crunchy peanuts – what could be better?! 


1 kg beef, cubed 
100 ml Tropical Sun Rapeseed Oil
1 tablespoon Tropical Sun Rub Rub Meat
3 tablespoons Tropical Sun All Purpose Seasoning
2 red peppers
2 green peppers
2 red onions

For the Suya Powder:
1kg Tropical Sun Red Skin Peanuts, peeled
5 cloves
3g Maggi Cubes
3 negro peppers
30g ginger powder
30g Tropical Sun Garlic Powder
30g Tropical Sun Ground Coriander
50g Tropical Sun Cayenne Powder
30g Tropical Sun Onion Powder
2 teaspoon Tropical Sun Seasoning Salt
5g Tropical Sun Ground Black Pepper 
20g Tropical Sun Pimento    
20g fennel powder
15g Tropical Sun Sweet Paprika


  1. Toast the peanuts in an oven at 150°C/302°F/Gas Mark 2 for 45 mins turning every 10-15 mins. Once toasted, blend the peanuts to a crumble and place in a clean dry dish cloth. Put a heavy weight onto the cloth to press all the oil out.
  2. Press the peanuts for at least a day, changing the cloth every few hours or so. Reserve in the fridge until ready for use.
  3. Blend the cloves, maggi cubes and negro pepper to a powder. Then add the remaining ingredients and blend again to a powder consistency.
  4. Blend the peanuts and the spices together to a powder and reserve.
  5. Marinade the diced beef with the Rapeseed oil, the rub and the all purpose seasoning.
  6. Skewer the beef alternating the onion and peppers in between each piece of beef.
  7. Roast the beef in a preheated oven or barbecue for 5-10 minutes turning regularly.
  8. Finish by coating the skewers with the suya powder and serve.
