Get the cow foot from the butcher shop or grocery store already chopped, cleaned, and ready to cook because this will save you a lot of time in the kitchen...pre-preparation.

Wash meat in cold water and then put it and the salt into the pressure cooker with about 10 cups of water and bay leaf. Allow the pressure cooker to boil the foot until the pot starts to make that steaming sound. Wait five to seven minutes after the sound starts and then turn off the pot.

Do not remove the pot from the stove as yet. Let the pot cool down a little bit, wait five minutes. Put the covered pot under the pipe in the sink and let some cold water run ontothe top of the pot to further cool it down.

Pour out the contents into a saucepan and cook the cow foot some more with all the other ingredients, except the butter bean, if the meat is not already soft. You can skim the fat off the top of the pot with a spoon while the pot boils.

Taste the soup 7 minutes after the seasonings are added.. You could also some *spinners” to the stew at this point, it’s your choice. Also the yam, or other ground provision. Add Water to the thickness you want the soup. Taste for saltiness. Add as to your taste.

Let the soup cook on medium and then add the butter bean to the soup 5 minutes before removing it from the fire. Spinners.

*Put flour in a large bowl and add a little water. Knead flour into dough, adding water as necessary, like you’re making bread. Pinch dough into small pieces, about 2” in diameter. Place pieces of dough into bowl and let sit for awhile.

With your palms facing each other, roll a piece of dough between them until the dough looks like a big piece of spaghetti.

Then form the dough so that the middle is wide and the top and bottom are small. This is a spinner. The length of the spinner (dough) should be no more that 4” though.

Repeat this process for all the pieces.
