Southern Black-Eyed Peas
Total TimePrep: 20 min. + soaking Cook: 45 min.
the salt pork belly isn't needed to me, the smoked ham brings enough flavor. I cooked them separately longer in the dutch oven and it was great.
Made this for New Year's Day and it was a hit. Absolutely delicious! I omitted the pork belly, since I didn't have any on hand.....and since I had one in the freezer, I opted for a ham shank with meat still on the bone instead of the ham hocks. Kept everything else the same. This was a rich and flavorful dish and perfect for ushering in 2020! Will definitely keep this one handy!
Loved them. My family ate them in 30 minutes. Gone
The thyme in this recipe was overpowering even though I measured it very carefully. My family, who usually loves the black eyed peas I make for New Years were very disappointed. I think we'll go back to the way my mother made them years ago.
