My recipe is basically the same, I don't add potato. Also, just before the peas start to break, just nice and tender, I pull out a cup of the peas and reserve them for the final flair. When my soup is done I add the reserved peas so it has some alternate texture. I love it this way, but if I miss that point...I still have gorgeous pea soup.

I love a good boiled dinner. I have to corn some more beef so I can make it again.
