Quick Pepperpot Soup

January/February 2010

Your rating: None Average: 3.4 (19 votes)

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.

Sad this did not work for me!

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)

Okra, sweet potatoes, coconut milk

surprisingly yummy

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.

quick & easy

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.
