On New Year's day, I am always looking for a unique recipe to spark up black eyed peas. As the name suggests, these dirty black eyed peas are a little naughty and a little nice.
Here's to your good luck!
In a large pan over medium heat, render bacon until crispy.
Add onions and saute for about 3 minutes and season mixture with salt and pepper.
Stir in pickled pork meat and ham hocks and saute for about 2 minutes.
Stir in garlic, bay leaves, thyme, black eyed peas and chicken stock and adjust seasoning to taste.
Bring mixture to a boil and reduce to simmer. Cook for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until peas are tender.
Remove the ham hock from the peas, thinly slice and add back to the peas.
Serve with jalapeno cornbread.
