Let me clear the air before I talk about this recipe, this is not nkwobi. I usually make peppered chopped cow skin (ponmo) for hubby and his friends but this time I decided to make it with cow legs with another twist. This cow leg recipe can serve as an alternative to cow leg pepper soup and you can adjust the chilli to your own taste.

UPDATE: The hotter you make this peppered cow leg the better I tell you, this is one of the easiest recipes I have whipped up in my little kitchen. Boy I still love and cook it till date….
