Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Place the beef into a container and cover with water. Soak overnight in the refrigerator to remove excess salt. Drain, rinse, and cut into small cubes before using.

  • Bring the cubed beef, peas, and water to a boil in a large pot over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the peas have softened and mostly dissolved, about 30 minutes. Stir or whisk frequently to help the peas dissolve, and to keep the soup from burning on the bottom of the pot. Stir in the carrots, turnips, and black pepper, continue simmering until the vegetables have softened, about 15 minutes more.

I usually make this soup after I've had a ham cooked. I use the large bone from the ham and some leftover cubed ham to add to the soup. Gives it great flavour. Read More

I love any recipe that helps me recreate that back home feeling and salt beef is always a winner. For those that don't know of it, it is like corned beef (and cabbage) brisket. Salt beef is sold as "Naval beef" in 5 and 10 lb plastic tubs filled with brined chunks of beef in the chilled grocery section. Make sure you soak it well for a number of hours to remove the salt (change the water mid way if you really want to remove all salt). I prefer it a bit salty, because the way my mother would always cook it. Thank you Carolyn. (Any chance for Fish and Brewis?) Read More

I make "newfie pea soup" all the time...I would like to add that I also put chicken wings in mine my Nan always did when I was a child and all my family members back home still cook it this way. Also I have never heard of anyone soaking the salt beef before hand. I always just throw it in the pot with the peas and let it cook up for about 2 hours before i start putting in the veggies. It's important to keep adding water. Also I always finish with dumplings (or doughboys as we call em' back home:) Read More

I thought this recipe was delicious. I found "salt beef" at my local grocery store as "naval beef". It came frozen in a big tub. I used about 5 pieces of the beef but off all the fat and was left with a bit less than a pound of small cubed beef. I used 3 cups of split peas instead of two and also used about 12 cups of water. I added water every 20 min or so everytime it seemed to simmer down a lot. I didnt soak the peas or the meat. I had to boil the meat and peas for 2 hours before adding the vegtables. Read More

I used this recipe for my first attempt at pea soup. It was awesome. I added a little celery and onion and it was fantastic. My 10 year old told me it was the most amazing pea soup ever. Quite the compliment. It was a little runnier than I was used to growing up so the only thing that I will do next time is cut back slightly on the water. I found a recipe for dumplings on another site and the combination was great. This is a true Newfie pea soup. Yummy! Read More
