 cooking pepper soup with washed bitter leaf
Ingredients For Simple Pepper Soup:
  • Internal parts of beef
  • A few pieces of real beef
  • seasoning cubes
  • pepper soup spices. ( sold in powdered form)
  • washed bitter leaf
  • ground pepper
  • salt onion
  • water

 a boiling pot of pepper soup with washed bitter leaf 
Cooking Steps For My Simple Pepper Soup:

  1. The washed meat  is further cut into tiny pieces, before adding with the internal parts. Put in a pot with salt, seasoning cubes and chopped onion. It is covered and brought to a boil..
  2. Once it begins to boil, I check for salt and add ground pepper with the pepper soup spices. Cover and allow to boil again before turning down the heat.
  3. Reduce the heat, add washed bitter leaf sparingly, cover and allow to simmer.
  4. Continue to open and stir, check for meat tenderness, and do not increase the heat until cooking is done.
  5. Let it just continue to simmer until it's as tender as you want it.
