Meat Pepper Soup

Pepper soup is simply meat in a spiced broth, the peculiar taste comes from the spice mix. you can make meat pepper soup ( usually contains goat meat) or Fish pepper soup ( widely made with catfish). Making pepper soup is extremely easily, as far as you have the pre-mixed spice blend.



Ingredient;
3 Table spoons Pepper soup spice mix
2Table spoons dry blended hot chilli
Goat meat ( 10 small pieces)(cleaned)
3 cubes Maggi
salt to taste
small onion, small ginger and garlic (peeled, not cut)

    Your pepper soup is ready to serve. Click HERE for a post on Fish pepper soup.
    I used shaki (beef tripe) + goat meat in the soup presented above 


    To make your own pepper soup mix you will need equal portions of ;  allspice seed, anise pepper, anise seeds, cloves, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, dried ginger, fennel seeds, tamarind pulp and ground pepper. (blend)
    This post is dedicated to Honeydame. Thanks for the recipe request!

    As a peppersoup connoisseur, this tickles the taste buds. I've been wanting to do some food posts for a while now, including a peppersoup one. Will do soon.

    In place of dry chilli pepper, I use fresh chilli (either shombo - the long thin ones or scotch bonnet/ata rodo will do. I put them in whole from the beginning for spice and taste and they cut into colourful shreds that also garnish the peppersoup after cooking. Really nice fresh taste to it.

    Yeiii.. looking forward to your food posts! fresh pepper is definitely a great twist. I will try it the next time I make some.

    You are a darling!!! Thanks a bunch!!!

    Lovely

    Like Adura, I also use fresh pepper (scotch bonnet). However, I do add a few finely cut leaves to mine (I cant remember the English name for the leaves)

    My 2 peppersoup variations:
    (1) UKODO - a meal of small pieces of yam, spices and meat peppersoup cooked in the same pot

    (2) Pepper soup thickened to eat with pounded yam: Thicken the peppersoup with a little crushed boiled yam or starch powder.

    Yum yum

    Ibhade said...

    @9jalines :DD yes, but i no sabi cook well well o!..hehehhe

    9jaFOODie said...

    @Nikki... I will like to say yes, it starts to taste bitter after a while (depending on the blend) try mixing a teaspoon in some hot water to get a taste.

    @Ibhade.. chaiiii.. pepper soup is golden jere. even with some roasted plantain as late afternoon snack. I don't use akaun to soften, I prefer to use pressure cooker.

    @Enybees-Hub; Pls do... it is great for any occasion.

    Surprise said...

    The Relentless Builder said...

    I always happen to visit your blog when I am hungry...And that doesn't help! This looks good though (I like the size of those meat chunks). I think it'll make a good appetizer.

    I want to cook pepper soup for my husbands b-day. I just want to know when do I have to put the beef tripe? I've heard that it doesn't have to boil a long time.

    9jaFOODie said...

    Depending on the type of tripe you buy, some require more cooking time than other. Try boiling the tripe for 20-25 mins, when it's ready, you should be able to cut through it with a knife without much effort.
