black-eyed peas

9 Feb

I’m not usually a fan of black-eyed peas, but I made these and they were delicious. I didn’t keep track meticulously, but this is pretty close to exactly what I did.

1# dried black-eyed peas, soaked overnight
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 onions, sliced thin
2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp sugar
6 cups water
dash of kitchen boquet gravy browner
dash of liquid smoke
6 cloves garlic, minced
2 bay leaves
1/2 tsp Goya Adobo, or to taste
1/2 tsp Italian seasonings, or to taste
Generous squirt Sriracha

Soak the peas overnight, if you haven’t done so already, and drain and rinse them. Heat the oil in the pressure cooker (no lid yet!) over medium heat. Add the onion, salt & sugar and reduce heat to low. let the onion cook, stirring occasionally, until dark brown and mushy (about 10-20 minutes??). Add the peas, water, gravy browner, liquid smoke, garlic & bay leaves. Put the lid on and turn heat to high. Bring to high pressure for 4 minutes, turn off heat and let pressure drop on it’s own accord. Add Adobo, Italian seasonings and Sriracha to taste.
