This takes the flavour of beef up a notch.

Cuisine: African
Author: Precious of preciouscore.com
  • ½ pound beef (about ¼ kg) - cut into slices
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  1. Arrange beef on a prepared baking tray. I usually line the baking tray with aluminium foil or parchment paper. Arrange the meat on top in a single layer then sprinkle with salt. Place in oven and broil for about 15-20 minutes until the meat develops colour. 

  2. When it is all smoky, you can add to the other meat or fish you are using in your meal and boil for a few minutes before using in whatever meal you choose to use it in. Alternately, you can let it cool then put in a ziplock bag and store in your fridge or freezer.

Recipe Notes

For this recipe, I purchased the beef part labelled, "beef for stew" but I have made this with sirloin and it works well. Most soft and boneless beef parts will be fine.

Leave the meat in the oven longer (about 5 more minutes) if you want the meat darker in colour. Don't leave it too long though so it doesn't become too dry and hard to chew when eventually used in a meal.
