Asun (Nigerian smoked Goat Meat)

Asun is part of the food recipes we usually refer to as small chops because it’s already cut into bite-size which makes it easy to just throw it into your mouth and enjoy. It is made with Goat meat which is pit-smoked or smoked on a barbecue grill, it’s then stirred in a chopped or roughly blended spicy pepper.

In this recipe, I will be recreating the smoky taste of Asun without the use of a barbecue grill.

Ingredients

  • 1 Lb Goat Meat Boneless with the skin on
  • Salt To Taste
  • 1 Bouillon Cube
  • 1.5 Onions Diced
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper Med Size
  • Habanero To Taste
  • Little Water To boil the meat
  • 1 Tsp Paprika Smoked
  • 2 Tbsp Vegetable Oil
  • Serving suggestions: Serve hot warm or cold

Instructions

  • Cut the Goat Meat into bite size and wash it thoroughly.
  • Add the Meat, salt Bullion Cube(s), half of the diced Onions and a little water then stir it all together and leave it to boil until it's about 80 percent done
  • Lay out the Meat into the baking pan and place it in a 350°F preheated oven for about 20 to 30 minutes or till it's browned to your satisfaction.
  • Chop the Bell peppers, Habanero, and the remaining Onions and set aside.
  • Add the Vegetable Oil into a Pan together with the diced peppers and Onions.
  • Stir-fry for a few seconds then turns off the cooker because we still want to retain the crunch in the peppers and onions.
  • Stir in the Goat meat (adjust for seasoning) and place a small metallic/stainless steel bowl in the middle of the pan.
  • Heat up a charcoal on your stove top until it's hot and red, then carefully use a pair or thongs or a spoon to lift the charcoal inside the metallic/stainless steel bowl, immediately pour about 1 tablespoon of oil over the coal and cover up the pan immediately, then leave it covered until all the smoke is gone.
  • open up the pan and enjoy the aroma of a freshly smoked Asun without the Grill.
  • Serve over a plate of Rice, eat as is or serve or eat as desired.
