Ghanaian Kebabs – Kyinkyinga


  • 250 to 280 grams of high quality slow matured sirloin steak
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • tankora spice
  • 1/2 a red onion
  • 1 fresh salad tomato
  • 1/2 a small cucumber


  1. Get 4 bamboo skewers and soak them in water 1 hour prior to grilling. Slice up the sirloin steak into bit sized pieces then season them with a little salt and pepper, coating the pieces with the oil. Add 2 tablespoons of the tankora spice and coat well. Allow to marinade whilst you prepare the other ingredients.
  2. Slice the onions into large cubes, as these will be skewered with the meat. Slice the tomatoes and cucumber, season with salt and pepper and set aside. Now begin to skewer the meat, alternating between the onions and beef until you have filled the 4 skewers.
  3. Now place the skewers under the grill, turning frequently for about 5 minutes. You can do this on a griddle pan as well, turning quite frequently. Once ready, the outside should be charred. Place into a plate to rest. Cover the skewers with a fresh dusting of tankora spice rub. I am very liberal with this spice. Then serve with chinks of tomato and cucumber.
