Asun is a grilled spicy assorted goat meat well known amongst the Yoruba’s. It is usually served at almost every Owambe(party) as an appetizer alongside other finger food.

So, if you’re a big fan of asun, you want to surprise your friends and loved ones with unusual small chops in your event, I will advise you follow the steps below.


Goat meat (the size depends on the quantity of asun you want)

1 big onion.

Salt and stock cubes to taste.

1 tablespoon each of thyme and curry

1 tablespoon black peppers

Goat flavoured Benny

Green pepper, yellow and red bell pepper(to garnish your asun)

Pepper (quantity of pepper is dependent on individual taste).

½ cup of cooking oil.

White vinegar

Garlic and ginger


Blend together onions, ginger and garlic

Wash the goat meat thoroughly and marinate with the stock cube, salt, vinegar, thyme, Benny, curry and the onions mixture.

Chop the coloured bell pepper into rectangular shapes and place aside

Cook the goat meat till its tender, then chop into your desired size and grill using the oven or a barbecue stand for few minutes till it is a bit dry.

Heat up oil in a pot pour in ground pepper, and sauce it.

Now you can pour in the grilled goat meat, chopped bell pepper, and stir-fry for 5min on medium heat.

Your delicious Asun is ready!!!

Serve and enjoy with a glass of juice or wine.
