For US to UK equivalents see this rough guide

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 2 cups peas
  • Water
  • 2 finely chopped onions
  • 1 piece (1/2 kg) pork
  • 1/4 tbsp Majoran powder
  • 1/2 tbsp thyme
  • Salt to taste


Boil dried peas in water on high heat for 10 min. Turn off the heat and simmer peas for 1-2 hours or until soft.

When peas are cooked, add the chopped onions, pepper, salt pork, thyme, marjoram and boil it on medium heat until the peas are completely cooked.

Add one whole onion. Once the peas are cooked remove the onion.

Remove pork form the cooking bowl and cut the meat into pieces, discarding the fat.

Serve the soup in a bowl with the pork slices on side. Garnish the soup with chopped dill or parsley if desired.

As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
