Nyama Choma Recipe

Nyama Choma Recipe

Nyama choma, or fire-roasted beef, is very popular and goes well with ugali and a good Kenyan beer.



2-3 pounds of beef short ribs—or any meat suitable for roasting
2 cloves garlic, minced
juice of 1 or 2 lemons
Curry powder (In Kenya, Simba Mbili curry powder, a brand of curry powder, is a favorite)

Salt & black pepper


Combine the lemon juice, garlic, and spices (to taste) in a large glass dish, mix well.

Add meat.
Stir to coat meat with marinade. Allow to marinate at least one hour.

Grill meat over charcoal, or broil it in a hot oven. Use a meat thermometer to check for doneness.

Serve with Irio, or Ugali. Leftovers can be used in Sukuma Wiki.
