This was the only recipe that has not worked out for me from the site. I was very disappointed as I was really looking forward to it. I thought perhaps a portion of the recipe may be missing (ie; add this ingredient and turn up medium heat) and repeatedly looked over the recipe to make sure I didn't miss something. Since others made out fine, then I assume it was user error! (Though mine did come out looking exactly like the picture)
Quick Pepperpot Soup
From EatingWell: January/February 2010
Jamaican pepperpot soup is usually a long-simmered preparation made with tough cuts of meat and vegetables. This version uses quick-cooking sirloin instead to get it on the table fast. If you’re not a fan of beef, try the soup with shrimp instead.

I am on a weekly food program with my neighbor (an organic farmer, lucky me :) ) who apparently has an abundance of okra (think zucchini), and I found this when looking for ideas of what to do with it. At first this recipe looked OK but bland with too much meat and liquid - however it used up a lot of aging items I had in stock, so I gave it a try. I was happily surprised. It is wonderfully flavored & filling. I used buffalo stock instead of water and spaghetti squash instead of potatoes, a little extra spinach and a little less beef.
I made this vegetarian by substituting a 15 oz can of red beans in place of the beef. It was very good, the beans' flavor blended well with the others. I love okra, and the amount the recipe calls for is barely enough to get a couple pieces in each serving. I think you could triple the okra in the recipe safely. I also served a 1/2 cup of brown rices with each bowl, making it more of a hearty stew. It is definitely worth making.
