"This is a family variation of a Lebanese green bean and meat stew. I grew up eating this every New Year's, and it is the only way my family will eat their peas! I try to include 1 bag of frozen field peas with snaps in my recipe.

onions, sliced into thin slivers
cubed beef stew meat
salt and pepper to taste
garlic, sliced, or to taste
3 (16 ounce) packages
frozen black-eyed peas
We did not have any stew meat, but did have a ham bone left over, so used that instead. Because we didn't need to cook the ham, it did not take as long to cook as the original recipe. We think the butter is really the secret ingredient here.
It was OK. I have come to the conclusion that I am not a big fan of black-eyed-peas in general. I don't really like the "earthy" flavor...kind of reminds me of eating dirt! This recipe is sooooo not healthy. While butter based anything is sure to be delicious, healthy, it is not! So while it tasted OK, I would not make this again because of too many calories.
This is delicious and filling. However, it had a lot of meat in comparison to the black-eyed peas, even though I decreased the meat down to 2 lbs. I think an extra package of black-eyed peas could be added since this is called Mom's Black-Eyed Peas" and not "Mom's Beef with Black-Eyed Peas". The butter is the key to this tasty dish!
Hey this is really good! The beef is a nice change from the same old ham or pork. I will make this again and it will be before next new years! Thank you L. Milfon for sharing.
Awesome. My version had 1 1/2 T butter, handfull of shallots from the garden, I had leftover roast and basmati rice and rosemary too, held the garlic (just didn't feel like it today)...mmmmm yummy. THANKS!!!
Everybody loved and very Tasty..I added 1 beef bouillion cube
The second time I have made this for New Year's Day. My family loves it.
This was a good recipe, but very high in fat, cholesterol, sodium and carbs.
