For the Bone Broth

Place the beef bones in a Dutch oven. Cover the bones with cold water, bring to a boil. With heat still on high, allow bone to simmer aggressively for 20 minutes. Remove from heat, and drain the liquid and scum away.

Preheat the oven to 350°C. Place all of the bones that you have just blanched on a baking sheet. Roast until bones are well-browned (40 - 50 minutes).

Transfer the bones to the Dutch Oven and add 4 litres of water, along with the spices (alligator pepper, negro pepper and jamaican nutmeg). Bring to a low boil, skimming any scum that rises to the surface. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 6 - 12 hours, adding water as needed to keep the bones covered.

About 3 hours to the end of the simmering, add the garlic, onions and carrot. Simmer for another 3 - 4 hours.

Discard the bones and strain through a fine sieve. Allow to cool completely, and then transfer to storage jar or bowl and refrigerate. If you making a batch for use later than a week, then transfer the cooled broth to a freezer storage bag, for freezing. This should last about 6 months, if unopened.

For the Peppersoup

Prepare your fillet of beef for cooking, by rubbing a teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil over the meat and then sprinkle some salt and black pepper (optional).

Place a medium-sized skillet on the heat. Add a teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil to the skillet and when hot, transfer the beef to the pan and fry for approximately 5 minutes while turning the meat in the pan to ensure all sides are thoroughly browned. Remove from heat, cover and set aside. Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees Fan-assisted or 200 degrees celsius.

Add the chopped onions and garlic to the skillet and fry for 2 - 3 minutes to release the aromas. Add a little bit of the bone broth to the skillet to deglaze the skillet, and then transfer the contents of the skillet to a Dutch Oven.

Add all the bone broth, stock cube, scotch bonnet pepper, and salt. Reduce the heat to medium and allow to simmer covered for 15 - 20 minutes. Transfer your browned fillet to the oven and roast for 10 minutes.

While the meat is roasting, prepare the ramen noodles according to the package instructions. Do not overcook the ramen. They should be slightly al-dente. Remove from the oven and slice the beef into 1cm - 2cm thick slices. The beef should be cooked rare at this point.

Transfer the beef slices, chopped basil, and ramen noodles into the Dutch oven. Allow to simmer for another 3 - 5 minutes.
