LaBelle's Home Made Gizzard Suya

Whenever 'the man in my life' goes shopping, I just know that he would buy the whole shop, both the things we need and the ones we don't need. I am not a fan of peanut butter (PB), neither is he but he still got it from the shops. This PB has been in the fridge for like forever. One saturday morning, I was cleaning the fridge, I decided to throw the PB away, as it has been there for so long instead of occupying space but then the taught of suya (Nigerian beef kebab) just came to my mind. I know one of the ingredients is ground peanut. So to achieve that taste, I used the PB.


3 kg chicken/turkey gizzards {spiced and cooked to your taste; drained and allowed to cool}
4 tablespoons of peanut butter
2 tablespoons of ground hot pepper
2 tablespoons chili flakes
1 tablespoon powdered garlic
2 tablespoons ground ginger
3 tablespoons onion powder
2 tablespoons barbecue sauce
3 tablespoons hot maggi liquid seasoning
1 tablespoon knorr Aromat
2 tablespoons olive oil

For garnishing

Bamboo skewers {soaked in water for about 30mins before use, this is to prevent it from burning}

Cherry tomatoes
Onions {roughly chopped}
Green bell pepper {roughly chopped}


Turn on the oven to 200 degrees celsius

In a blender or food processor, add the olive oil, peanut butter, barbecue sauce, and maggi seasoning. Blend until well combined.

Put the gizzards into a bowl, add all the ingredients including the blended mix. Wear your gloves and get dirty. Mix properly until well combined.

Let your artistic nature manifest at this moment; put in the gizzards, the onions, pepper and cherry tomatoes on the skewers as you want them or as seen on the photos.

Once done, use foil to cover the skewers showing and pop into the oven. Roast for about 30-40 minutes or roast to your taste; just as you love your meats {remove after 20 minutes, drizzle ground/vegetable/sunflower oil on them and put back in the oven}.

Serve with hot pepper or rice...
