1 Hr 45 Min

Two former presidents found this comforting recipe for Pepper Pot Soup to be one of their most requested soup recipes for their cooks to make. Yes, both George Washington and FDR enjoyed a bowl of this soup along with crusty bread for dunking.

What You'll Need:
  • 2 pounds boneless beef bottom round roast, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 8 cups water
  • 2 large onions, diced
  • 3 beef bouillon cubes
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tomatoes, diced
  • 1 large green bell pepper, diced
  • 2 potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 2 carrots, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup frozen corn, thawed
What To Do:
  1. Place beef chunks, water, onions, bouillon cubes, and black pepper in a soup pot. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 1 hour, or until beef is tender.
  2. Stir in remaining ingredients and simmer, partially covered, for an additional 45 to 50 minutes, or until vegetables are tender.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Thanks for the recipe, probably will re-name it, however, since it does not compare to the canned Campbells' pepperpot that we so loved in the 50's! Thanks for trying though.

like all the rest,where is the tripe,the chili powder.Campbells never put green pepper in theirs,neither did my grandmother.

That's why they call it pepper pot.And the geen,red,yellow or orange pepper to it.

this is almost like my vegetable soup and yes where is the tripe?

This isn't the real thing. where's the tripe?
