Mishkaki: The Essence of Tanzanian Skewers

Mishkaki’s Culinary Journey

Mishkaki, reminiscent of kebabs, is Tanzania’s answer to the world’s love for grilled meat skewers. Juicy, marinated chunks of meat grilled to perfection – Mishkaki is a street food favorite and a must-try for any meat lover in Tanzania.

Key Ingredients for Flavorful Mishkaki

  1. 500 grams of beef or chicken, cut into cubes
  2. 3 tablespoons of soy sauce
  3. 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
  4. 1 tablespoon of garlic paste
  5. 1 tablespoon of ginger paste
  6. 1 teaspoon of ground black pepper
  7. Salt to taste
  8. Wooden skewers, pre-soaked in water

Crafting the Perfect Mishkaki

  1. Marination: In a large bowl, combine soy sauce, lemon juice, garlic paste, ginger paste, black pepper, and salt. Add in the meat cubes, ensuring they are well-coated with the marinade. Let them marinate for at least 3 hours, preferably overnight in the refrigerator.
  2. Skewering: Thread the marinated meat cubes onto the pre-soaked wooden skewers.
  3. Grilling: Preheat a grill or barbecue. Place the skewers on the grill, turning them occasionally, until the meat is browned on all sides and cooked through.
  4. Serving: Serve hot with a side of tamarind sauce or chili sauce.
