Just Can’t Get Enough

16 Aug

“I’m addicted and I just can’t get enough” of black eyed peas! The Black Eyed Peas song is a bit catchy, yes but I’m really writing about another crockpot meal that I cooked up this week. It was so simple and the end product was really good. We used 2/3 of a package of black eyed peas and soaked them in water over night. The next morning my husband added some chicken stock and left them alone. Around 1 PM the next afternoon I added a large smoked ham hock amongst the peas and turned the crockpot on to low. I left it alone for about 3 1/2 hours. When I checked in on it, I didn’t think it was ready so I upped the temp to high for the last hour. It was smoking delicious! The meat from the ham hock fell right off the bone and the smokiness wasn’t too intense but added a lot a depth of flavor to the black eyed peas.

I added a youtube clip of the Black Eyed Peas lastest hit “Just Cant Get Enough”
