Pea Soup with Corned Silverside

Pea Soup with Corned Silverside

Posted 2018-08-05 by finyfollow

This is a recipe that I have had for many years, and handed down by my mother.

It is an unusual soup which is both healthy, delicious, and a complete and filling meal.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 6½ hours in slow cooker or
2½ hours on top of stove
Serves: 6 - 8

Ingredients
250 g split peas
2 large potatoes, peeled and cut in half
Piece of corned silverside (about 1½ kg or larger)
2 carrots
1 tomato
Celery (optional)
5 brussel sprouts (optional)
Flour
Onion

Method
  • I made it this time in my slow cooker and have not done this before. It is so easy as you just turn it on and forget it!

  • Put the split peas, potatoes, corned silverside, carrots, tomato and celery in a pot or slow cooker, and cover totally with water.

  • Turn on the slow cooker to high for about and hour and then cook for about 5 more hours on low or medium.


  • Meanwhile, when it is nearly done, fry a large onion in oil or butter until it is starting to brown.

  • Add about 4 tbsp flour, and then a bit of cold water. Stir and add a few scoops of the soup, at bit at a time until it thickens and is a thin mixture.


  • Take the meat out of the soup, and cut it into pieces. I did not cut it all as I bought a slightly larger piece so that I could have some left over to use in sandwiches for lunches (delicious with mustard)


  • Stir the onion mixture into the soup and then add the chopped meat back in. Mash the potato, and let the soup heat for a few minutes.

  • Serve either with or without the vegetables. I also added about 5 Brussel sprouts to mine which gives it a nice flavour.
