    Nigerian Peppered Meat Recipe with Beef Tongue

    Chef notes

    No occasion or celebration among Nigerians is complete without Nigerian peppered meat! Whenever you attend a Nigerian party, if you don’t see peppered assorted meat, you will see peppered snails, or peppered chicken or Nigerian peppered goat meat, or Nigerian peppered fish. Sometimes you will see every kind of peppered recipe at one party, lol, Nigerians sure know how to party, and when they do, our food is always represented. So, it is normal to hear people refer to this recipe as party peppered meat.

    Peppered meat is gluten-free, dairy-free, and keto-friendly; this recipe is packed with high-quality protein. The best thing about making Nigerian peppered meat recipe is that you can use any meat, and today I am using beef tongue, aka cow tongue.
