Strictly speaking, Guyana pepper pot is a rich meat or fish stew introduced by Guyana's native peoples. An authentic Guyana pepper pot must have casareep. Pepper pot without casareep is like jerk chicken without jerk sauce. Guyana pepper pot does not have (a) fry oil, (b) onions, (c) thyme, and (d) vinegar. Casareep looks like mollases and it made by boiling down the juice of bitter cassava with a bit of sugar. The result is an excellent seasoning and preservative that the ancient Amerindians discovered. They use meat or fish, whatever they hunted, for this stew; however, in most homes across Guyana, people use meat, salted and fresh, along with the animalís tails and feet. Guyana pepper pot is not something you can rustle up in fifteen minutes, but it's worth trying this gourmet dish.

The recipe above is called Pepper Pot (PP) but is NOT Guyana pepper pot. Guyana MEAT pepper pot does not have (a) thyme, (b) fish sauce), (c) fry oil, (d) onion and (e) vinegar. That recipe is a witches brew! Guyana PP has casareep -- the distinctive ingredient -- made from bitter cassava and PP is the traditional dish of the aboriginal people of Guyana. The extraction of the cassava juice and the procressing speak to the sophistication of these people and their culture. When you find the right recipe, try it and you would know there is nothing like it. It is truly gourmet cooking. By the way, you could use fish as the Indians do to this day. They use any meat they could find and they eat PP with cassava bread, another of their marvellous invention.

The recipe for making pepperpot (Guyana) outlined above is totally incorrect and shows the author's lack of awareness of what pepperpot is in the Guyana context. The mere fact that you included Grace products points in that direction - it is not that I have anything against Grace products.
Pepperpot is made with cassreep, made from casava, and not with fish and meat sauce.
I would advice the author to read a cooking book from Guyana to understand what is pepperpot.
