How to make Pepper soup
Start cooking the meat with some simple ingredients. (A seasoning cube, a teaspoon of beef seasoning spice, a teaspoon of salt and half cup of sliced onions).
Cook the meat for just 10 minutes then add about 3 cups of water and cook for 30-50 minutes until the meat becomes tender and easy to chew. You can add another cup of water.
Add the pepper soup spice, the ground ehu, uziza, crayfish, and remaining onions.
Add the Paprika – a teaspoon. Paprika is a spice made from the dried fruit of red bell pepper. It makes my pepper soup somewhat reddish.
Add the sliced utazi, salt and (ordinary) pepper to taste. Allow to boil for another 5-10 minutes and you just made a delicious pot of pepper soup, One of Nigeria’s most popular evening meals.
NOTE: Uziza seeds are very pepperish, be sure to taste before adding scotch bonnet (ordinary pepper).
You can serve alone with a chilled bottle of your favorite drink. Although, I enjoy it better with boiled white rice or yam.
