SUYA BEEF FRIED RICE


As I opened my fridge, I saw my leftover rice and Beef Suya and decided on making fried rice for my packed lunch. 
Realistically, I could've made a simple egg fried rice but I craved for the Beef Suya I had the night before. 
The Suya gives the dish a spicy and nutty flavour which is perfect to enjoy in this cold weather.
If you're lucky enough to have a charcoal grill use it to cook your meat for a smoky flavour. 
Enjoy this easy to follow recipe and share your pictures.

Ingredients 

300g of cooked Jasmine Rice 
40g of Suya spice mix
2 tablespoonfuls of Coconut oil / Olive oil
30g of Spring onions 
20g of chopped Coriander 
600g of Rump steak
10g of chopped Oregano (optional)
1 tablespoonful of Chipotle chillies 
2 sliced Green Peppers
2 large finely sliced Onions
Salt to taste


 Method 

Suya spice is readily available in most African shops and online. 

Mix the Suya spice with Chipotle chillies (readily available in most supermarkets) and warm it up in a frying pan, as shown below. 
Warming your Suya spice mix releases the oil and flavours. 


 

Using a meat tenderiser (available online) beat the meat to break down its fibres (this makes the meat tender when cooked).

 If you don't have a meat tenderiser use a rolling pin instead. Your meat should look flattened after been tenderised.

 If you're using a tough cut of meat, this process of tenderising ensures you have a soft and tender meat. 

 

Place your sliced Onions and Green Peppers in a baking tray.
Sprinkle your meat with Suya spice mix and rub it on both sides. 
Sit the meat on top of the Onion and Green Pepper slices (as shown above). 

Place your Suya spiced meat in the fridge to marinade for at least an hour. This allows the meat to absorb the flavours of the Suya spice. 

When you're ready to cook your meat, take the meat from the fridge and bring it to room temperature for about 15 minutes. 

Pre heat your grill to 200*c.
Drizzle the meat with 1 tablespoonful of Coconut oil or Olive oil and Oregano (optional).
Place your meat under the grill and cook for 6 minutes.
Take the meat out of the grill and leave it to rest. 

In a Wok or frying pan add the remaining Coconut oil and place on a medium heat.

Add the rice and fry for 4 minutes, ensuring you consistently stir it. 

Add the juices from the meat, mix and fry for another minute.

Slice the meat into sizeable chunks and add it to the rice. Fry the rice for a further 2 minutes and add the grilled Onions and Green peppers. 

Mix everything together, sprinkle the chopped Spring Onions and fresh Coriander over the rice. 

Serve immediately and enjoy with a Pineapple and Ginger smoothie. The perfect remedy for this cold weather. I managed to capture the Suya fried rice on my frozen glass table, as shown below.
