Well another 12 hour shift done and only 3 full ones to go, I’m really looking forward to getting home to see my wife and the little one. Had to leave for work too soon after he was born but now I get to have a full month with him. It will be also a full month of working on the cookbook and YouTube cooking channel as well. Can’t wait to get some updates done and improve on the video making. I can’t give up on myself, it’s the one thing that always happens and it sets me back. Gotta kick it into high gear and work towards giving my family the best life possible with the skills I have. Tired of moving backwards, it’s time to launch forward. Anyway lets get to the recipe.

Pea Soup is a Saturday tradition on the boats here in Newfoundland. Some people would get confused on what day it is if the soup is not on when it’s supposed to be. The Dumplings are also called “dough B’y’s” if you’re ever in Newfoundland and you see it around. If you don’t have access to salt beef you can substitute with a ham bone. I hope you enjoy making this and let me know how it works out for you in the comments below. Please subscribe to my channel so I can keep making even better videos.

Pea Soup With Dumplings (Dough B’y’s)
1 lb salt beef (soaked overnight)
250g split peas
1/2 a medium turnip
1/2 a large onion
1 medium carrot
3 or 4 ribs of celery
4 L of Water
1 bay leaf (optional)
1. Dice up your beef and trim all the fat and bones off. Toss it in a medium soup pot. Place in your bay leaf if you choose.
2. Add your split peas and pour 4L of water over it. Then lay it on the stove uncovered at high heat to bring to a boil. Stir occasionally so the peas don’t stick.
3. In the meantime dice up all your veggies. after about 1 1/2- 2 hours toss in the diced vegetables and bring to a boil again.You may need to add more water so it doesn’t stick and burn. let it cook for another 40 minutes or so.
Now for your Dumplings:
1 3/4 cups flour
1 tbsp baking powder
3 tbsp butter or margarine
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
3/4 cups milk
1. Whisk together in a bowl the flour, baking powder, salt and pepper.
2. Add the butter and whisk again until the mixture resembles course crumbs.
3. Next pour in the milk and switch to a rubber spatula to mix it all together and a soft dough forms.
4. Pinch off small chunks of the dough and drop them into the boiling pea soup. Cover the pot and remove it from the heat and let the dumplings cook for 20 minutes.
5. Remove the cooked dumplings and add pepper to taste then serve.
