Who does not like it the savoury and spicy taste of pepper soup? It is a huge staple and it also serves as an appetizer for Nigerian parties.
1/2 cow leg cut into small pieces
1 medium-sized onion
2 thumb sized ginger
1/2 cup oil
2 spoons ground fresh pepper (ata rodo) OR MORE
2 seasoning cubes
4 cups water or enough to almost cover the meat
4 Scent leaves
1. Pressure cook the cow leg with water, 1 seasoning cube, salt, a pinch of thyme and curry. Once the pot starts wheezing, wait for 10 minutes (Depending on your pressure cooker) before turning off the heat.
- Pound the ginger together with onion, pepper, the remaining seasoning cube, then stir-fry for about a minute with another pinch of thyme.
- Add the pressure cooked soft cow leg and stock, then stir. Check for salt and general taste. Cover and leave to simmer for about 2 minutes. Let the taste and aroma of the meat and sauce come together and mesmerize you and neighbours.
