Asun: Spicy Goat Meat

Alert!!!!! Are you not a fan of chilli or hot foods? Right then, this recipe is not for you !!!!!! :)

Asun is a very famous delicacy in the south western region of Nigeria, especially amongst people from Ondo State. Originally from Ondo town, Asun is usually cooked during any celebration as an appetizer or a side dish. Traditionally, it is made of roasted goat meat and then mixed with scotch bonnet  peppers and onions. By the way, in case you are wondering how I know all these background information, its because I lived my early years in Ondo town.



Ok, so here is a little Ondo town praises I know.... Ondo Ekimogun, omo a mula meji ojuseye. Omo lewu woyi woyi. omo gbalaii gbe oko'la.

Asun is now very popular and served in many bars in Nigeria. I remember the last time I went to an Asun bar in Ondo town. It was the best Asun I've ever tasted but my mouth was on fire..... I nearly died (Ok, now I'm exaggerating...lol)

Anyways, here's my way of recreating this delicious food without the need of using firewood for roasting the meat. I hope it helps

Ingredients
Fresh goat meat (1 lb)
Scotch bonnet pepper (x7)
Knorr chicken cubes (x2)
Onion (x2)
Salt
Vegetable oil (Cookingspoonful)

Instructions
  1. Marinate the goat meat with salt and place in the fridge overnight
  2. Spread the meat in a grilling pan and place in the oven at 200C for 30 minutes. 
  3. Ensure the meat is soft and tender before removing from the oven.
  4. Place a wok pan or frying pan on a stove on medium heat and add the vegetable oil
  5. Let this heat up for 30 seconds and add the chopped onion.
  6. Let fry for 45 seconds and add the blended peppers.
  7. Allow to fry for 3-5 minutes and add the maggi cubes and salt to taste.
  8. Add the grilled goat meat and let cook for another 3-4 minutes.

  10. Voila!!!!! Enjoy :)
