1 1/2 cups
instant white rice
ground beef sirloin
chopped green bell pepper
3 (15.5 ounce) cans
black-eyed peas with liquid
1 (10.5 ounce) can
condensed beef broth
2 (10 ounce) cans
diced tomatoes and green chiles
water, or as needed
We loved this! I cooked all ingredients (except the rice) as directed with the beef broth and no water added. I was afraid the rice would get "starchy" in the slow cooker all day. Just before serving I cooked the rice in beef broth, put a scoop in each soup bowl and topped with the peas. My husband and I ate on this all week long till the leftovers were gone. Definitely a keeper!
I'm afraid I don't see the need for putting this in a slow cooker for 6 hours. Everything is cooked and I would think that a 30 min slow simmer on top of the stove would blend the flavors perfectly.
A very good crockpot recipe. I replaced the white rice with 2 1/2 cups of cooked brown rice.
This makes an enormous amount of food - to the top of the slow cooker! I would use frozen black eyed peas next time and low sodium beef broth to cut down on the salt content. Very filling and tasty.
I was a little concerned about this having much flavor with no spices or anything really, but it turned out amazing. I have to say I did change it up a little big. I did add one whole large green pepper. I used only two cans of beans in fear that it would be far too many beans. I added 3-4 diced garlic cloves and cooked them with the onions and beef. I also served it over rice instead of adding it to the crock pot. I don't really like my rice all soggy like that. It was amazing. I really really loved it so much. It was a nice meal for us on a cold winter night. Very hearty. I am looking forward to the leftovers.
I've changed the recipe a bit in that I don't cook the rice first, I use hot italian sausage instead of ground sirloin, and instead of diced tomatoes with green chiles I use diced tomatoes with jalepenos, plus sometimes some more for good measure. Way to spicey for me (heat can easily be regulated), but my husband loves it. I make up a big batch and freeze into meal size portions for him to take for lunch. Healthier and cheaper than a meal out! Thanks!
REALLY GOOD,I ADDED A LITTLE CAJUN SEASONING TO IT,IT REALLY SPICED IT UP..
This was very good! I used black beans instead of black-eyed peas and only 1 cup of rice. We served it with sour cream. Yum!
