How To Prepare Delicious Nigerian Style Meat Pepper Soup.

How To Prepare Delicious Nigerian Style Pepper Soup 

Nigerian Peppersoup is one of the most delicious Nigerian foods. I want to talk about the assorted meat recipe I have come to learn, in the last few years that several recipes exist This one, however, is made with assorted meat, although we have different recipes in Nigeria that are made with different kinds of meat and fishes. The most popular is goat meat recipe followed by the assorted cow/goat meat recipe (which includes shaki [cow tripe], pkomo, fresh meat, intestine, liver, and kidney), also we have the cow tail version, Catfish Pepper Soup which is fondly called ‘point and kill’. and I'll also teach and list the ingredients used in the preparation process of this meat pepper soup.

Complete list of Pepper soup Ingredients and spices

1 kg of assorted meat (goat or cow)

Seeds of Ehu

Scent leaves (a handful)

Sliced Utazi Leaves (optional)(a handful)

2 stock cubes ( according to preference)

3 Tablespoons of ground crayfish (optional)

1 cup of sliced onions

Salt and pepper to taste

1 teaspoon Beef seasoning spice

2 garlic cloves

Half-finger of ginger.

Half teaspoon lion Peppersoup spice.

paprika – teaspoon.

The glass plate contains a seasoning cube and paprika powder(optional). I like my pepper soup a little red, hence the paprika powder.

Assorted goat meat on the other plate. the rest are utazi leaves, pepper (Scotch bonnet) and ehu seeds.


Clean the ginger and garlic, pound or blend together.

The seed of ehu is one of the most relevant ingredients just go ahead and break away the outer shell, then go ahead and blend/pound together with the uziza seeds and half cup of crayfish

Slice the onions and utazi leaves and set aside in a plate.

This same ingredient (ehu) is used for making several other Nigerian foods, like the African salad and Nkwobi.

If you are preparing pepper soup with assorted meat you want to wash the meat properly with hot water (optional).

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 (Optional).

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 In colour/appearance.

Add the sliced utazi, salt and (ordinary) pepper to taste. Allow to boil for another 5-10 minutes and you just made yourself 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 (pepper)

You can serve alone with a chilled bottle of your favorite drink. Although, it is better enjoyed with boiled white rice or yam.

So this is how to prepare pepper soup with intestine, tripe, liver and plain red beef – Assorted meat.
