Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It was very good, but with my substitutions it could have easily been a non-slowcooker recipe. It was very good, but with my substitutions it could have easily been a non-slowcooker recipe. I used canned black eyed peas because I feared getting them well cooked in time. I forgot to add the cummin, but it had good zing without it. I used some sandwich ham that I already had on hand, and remembered ham doesn't really do well in the crock pot; it kinda takes on a weird texture. And I used some kale greens I froze from last fall. So next time with the canned black eyed peas I'll just cook the bacon a little more before adding veggies and then heat it all up on the stove and maybe just keep warm in the crockpot. But overall, it was super tasty! Even the kids liked it on rice.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I made this with a few additions, i.e., minced garlic, salt/black pepper. I made this with a few additions, i.e., minced garlic, salt/black pepper. The dish was cooked on low for 6 hours and the peas were still crunchy and so were the carrots. I have a high end slow cooker so it was not the cooker that this dish was made in. I tried cooking additional 2 hours on high and still not done so I put the stuff in a pot and next day cooked on low for 1 1/2 hours to complete the cooking. I soaked the peas, etc. like instructed. Won't make in cooker again but this can be made on the stovetop so since husband liked it and on vitamin K diet I will make again.

I used the pinto beans I had on hand, used all of my Christmas ham & threw the bone into the pot too. We like it spicy here at mynhome so I used fire roasted Tex-Mex canned tomatoes and 2 jalepenos finely chopped. I also didn't have any bacon I put "pork jowel bacon" aka salted pork in but only 4 slices that I nicely panfried to a crisp:)~.......super Flavorful great paired with jalopeno cornbread!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this recipe for New Years Day and I was very happy with the results. I made this recipe for New Years Day and I was very happy with the results. I made a few changes such as using a 1lb. ham steak chopped up. I also added a bay leaf, a little of my favorite seasoned salt, and served it over brown rice. But these were minor changes. The recipe as it's written is very flavorful and trustworthy. My guests loved it. I will probably make it an annual tradition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this recipe for dinner tonight. I made this recipe for dinner tonight. Oh my gosh, it is so wonderful! Talk about real Southern comfort food!! I made jasmine rice and jalapeno cheese cornbread to go with it. I made a couple of changes to the recipe, though. I have never had much luck with the "quick" method of preparing dried beans, so I soaked the black-eyed peas overnight. I used 4 Tbsp of real bacon bits instead of cooking sliced bacon, and I just cooked the vegetables and bacon bits in a little bit of margarine. I used a quart box of chicken broth--easier than two cans--and cut down the water to compensate. Instead of the ham, I pulled the meat off some baby back ribs I had leftover from a dinner out the other night--ooh, that made them good! I'm sure the ham is just as yummy though. And I couldn't find mustard greens, so I used a 16 oz bag of collard greens instead. That was quite a bit, so I steamed them in the microwave to cook them down a bit before I stirred them into the stew. My husband pronounced it "deli

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The pot liquor alone is delicious! The pot liquor alone is delicious! Even my picky husband enjoyed this! We ate it over rice and we tried it alone with some crumbled cornbread in the bowl. It's fabulous either way. I neglected to add the cumin and ham..... seasoned at the end of cooking with some ground black pepper.

I made this yesterday and it was my first experience with mustard greens and black eyed peas! It was easy to make! I left out the ham and I used boxed tomatoes instead of canned. I'm going to add more greens and more spices as eat it as we like our food spicy.
