Pepperpot Beef (Trinidad and Tobago)

“A touch of the islands! Mixed peppercorns are a mixture of black, white, green, and pink peppercorns.”

Yield: 4 Servings


2 -3 quarts beef stock
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup vinegar
2 large onions
2 lbs boneless beef roast
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
1 pinch ground allspice
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
2 -4 fresh red chilies
1 tablespoon mixed peppercorns


Put the beef into a large pan, add enough stock to cover, and bring to a boil, skimming off any scum that rises to the surface.Lower the heat, cover, and simmer for 1 1/2 hours or until the meat feels just tender when pierced with a skewer. Add the onions, chilies, and half of the parsley, vinegar, sugar, Worcestershire sauce, mixed peppercorns, cinnamon, thyme, allspice, and salt to taste.

Cover and simmer for 2 hours or until the beef is very tender. Transfer the beef to a carving board, cover, and keep warm. Skim any fat from the cooking liquid, and boil for about 10-20 minutes or until reduced to 1 1/4 cups.

Season, adding more vinegar and crushed peppercorns if needed. Slice the beef thickly, discarding any fat. Pour the sauce over the beef and sprinkle with the remaining parsley.
