    jdoerck's Note:

    I can't remember where the original for this recipe came from; the original called for a ham hock. As with most stews, its better to refrigerate overnite before serving, but who wants to do that? To compensate for the lack of hog jowl I usually add quite a bit more thyme. Usually at least a second teaspoon towards the end of cooking the peas. Adding a jalapeño when cooking the vegetable can add some kick.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 4-6

    Yield:

    Big Pot

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Rinse peas and pick over for bad or discolored peas and small stones; transfer to a medium saucepan. Cover with stock or water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and continue cooking for 5 minutes; set aside.
    2. 2
      In a large stock pot heat vegetable oil over low heat. Add the onion, diced carrot, and garlic. Cook, stirring, until tender, about 6 to 8 minutes.
    3. 3
      Add peas and enough stock or water to cover by 2 inches. Add pepper flakes, black pepper, thyme, and oregano. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium and simmer, covered, for about 1 hour. Uncover and cook for 30 to 45 minutes longer, or until peas are tender - the longer you cook them, the better they will be. Add more wateror stock as needed to keep them moist.
    4. 4
      Serve with olive oil, Tobasco, hot baked cornbread and a tossed salad or steamed collards.
