You would definitely be thumbing your nose at this before it gets cooked. This spicy cow leg pepper soup with yam is a delight! The yam makes it a complete meal and we decided to show our own creativity by adding chopped carrot. Give this meal a go!
Firstly chop the onions, spring onions, carrot and basil. Set aside. Mince the fresh garlic and rodo then set aside. Peel the yam, wash and chop into chunks.
Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat, add in the chopped onions and spring onions and saute for about 2 minutes. Add the minced garlic and rodo, pepper, thyme, paprika, white pepper, seasoning cubes and salt to taste and stir for about 2 minutes.
Add 1½ kilograms of cow leg (washed and chopped) and continue stirring. Add little water if needed and allow to simmer for a minutes. Add about 8 cups of water to boil and allow to boil for about 2 hours.
Add the yam and carrot about 20 minutes before the cow leg becomes tender. Adjust the thickness and taste of the soup as desired. Add in the chopped basil and allow to simmer to a minute.
Serve and garnish with thyme sprigs (optional).
