* Start with Parboiling meat with salt and maggi
* Use hot water and washed dry fish, stock fish and add to the cooking pot of meat, add more water then add palm oil, grinded crayfish, pepper, seasoning, Stir and allow boiling.

At this point it should give a good soupy taste (even though it would be watery). Then add the pounded cocoa yam, add the "ogiri".

Cook till the cocoa yam dissolves, (this would likely take about ten minutes) then add the bitter leaves, stir, taste, add more salt if necessary then cook for three to two minutes and you are done with the making of Nigerian Bitter Leaf Soup (Ofe Onugbu)

Serve with Eba, Fufu, Semo, Wheat or pounded yam
