So, you need to try this. Don't soak the beans overnight. Black eyed peas don't need to soak. I used pork blade steaks (2) and one piece of bacon. I browned the pork with salt and pepper. I adde...

These were really good but waaaaaaaaaaay too spicy (and I like spicy). I would cut the spicy spices in half or just serve cayenne or tabasco on the side. I had to add apple juice and brown sug...

There's a thin line between watery & brothy. I like my black-eyes brothy (thick). I soaked mine for 6 hrs. Cooked them on high 6 1/2 hours in the crock-pot. Used 1 can of chicken broth in place ...

I absolutely loved this meal. At the start of the year I found out I have extremely high cholesterol and came seeking healthy foods. I switched out the four strips of bacon for a couple of ext...

I followed the recipe to the tee. It cooked all day and turned out great. He said it got better and better as it sat. WILL be making this one again, I'm sure!

This will be the 2nd New Years Day I have made this recipe and have also prepared it many times for our backyard BBQ's. I also use chicken broth and not so much liquid. Black eyes don't absorb...

This was great! I used turkey bacon and a can of Rotel Extra Hot! Threw in a sprinkling of Tony Chachere's More Spice and let it go!! Amazing!
