Beef Soup

I know that today is Sunday, and everyone is looking forward to that buffet style recipes, but I am still on soups, and today, I want to share a great beef soup recipe with you. Enjoy.


2lbs beef
1 lime
1 onion, chopped finely
3 pimento pepper, chopped finely
2 cloves garlic, chopped finely
1 tsp. salt
2 leaves big leaf thyme
8 leaves chadon beni
3 potatoes, peeled and diced
2 carrot, diced
1/2 cup split peas, soaked overnight

Wash the beef in water with lime juice. Cut into 1 inch cubes; season with onion, garlic, Pimento pepper, Salt, big leaf thyme, and chadon beni. Mix and marinate for 1 hour.

Pressure cook the beef, carrot and split peas in about three cups of water for about 25 minutes or until the beef is cooked and the split peas “bursts”.

In a separate pot boil the potatoes. One can use other types of provision such as yam, dasheen, green bananas/figs, cassava and other types of provisions, but I love potatoes best of all.

The beef looks cooked now.Add the potatoes, and simmer for another five minutes.
Adjust salt to taste. Serve hot.
