Frozen Beef Snout & Skin

"Pomo" is a term used in Nigerian cuisine to refer to a type of cowhide or beef skin that has been processed and prepared for consumption. It is also known as "ponmo" or "kanda" in some regions. Pomo is a common ingredient in Nigerian and West African dishes, where it is used to add texture and flavor to various meals.

Pepper Soup: Pomo is often added to Nigerian pepper soup, a spicy and flavorful broth made with a variety of meats and spices. The chewy texture of pomo complements the other ingredients in the soup.

Okra Soup: Pomo is a popular ingredient in Nigerian okra soup, a thick and hearty soup made with okra, vegetables, and a variety of proteins. The chewiness of pomo adds an interesting contrast to the soup's texture.

Stews: Pomo is used in various Nigerian stews and sauces, such as tomato stew and egusi stew. It is often simmered in the stew, absorbing the flavors of the sauce and contributing to the overall taste.

If you plan to use beef snout within a few days, you can store them in the refrigerator. Place them in an airtight container or resealable plastic bag. If you want to store beef snout for a more extended period, freezing is the best option.
Pomo, or processed cowhide or beef skin, is a traditional ingredient in Nigerian and West African cuisine. It is used for its unique texture and flavor, but it is not typically consumed for its nutritional value. In fact, pomo is primarily collagen, which is a protein found in connective tissues like skin and tendons. Collagen is not a significant source of essential nutrients, such as vitamins and minerals, like other meat cuts.

Here's how to prepare beef snout:


  • Dried or processed pomo pieces
  • Water for soaking


Place the dried or processed pomo pieces in a large bowl or container. Add enough water to cover the pomo completely. The pomo will absorb the water and expand as it rehydrates.

Allow the pomo to soak for several hours or overnight. The exact soaking time may vary depending on the thickness and hardness of the pomo. Thicker pieces may require longer soaking to become soft and pliable.

After soaking, check the pomo for softness by attempting to bend or tear a piece. It should be soft and pliable. If the pomo is still tough or chewy, it may need additional soaking time.

Drain and rinse the rehydrated pomo pieces with fresh water to remove any impurities or excess salt. Some processed pomo may be salted, so rinsing helps reduce the saltiness.

Once the pomo is soft and clean, you can use it in various West African dishes. It is often added to soups, stews, and sauces. Simply chop it into smaller pieces or slices and cook it with other ingredients. The pomo will absorb the flavors of the dish and add its unique texture.
