bacon, black eyed peas, instant pot
Natural release time
(Makes about 6 cups)
dry black eyed peas
(1 lb bag usually has 2-2 1/4 cups of peas)
fresh cracked black pepper
Rinse peas and set them aside.
Dice raw bacon into small pieces. Make sure your knife is sharp and bacon is cold to make it easier to cut.
Turn Instant Pot to Saute and let it heat up. Add a little bit of oil to the bottom of the pot and add bacon. Saute bacon until browned.
Add peas to the pot and mix.
Add water, chicken stock, some salt, and fresh cracked black pepper. (Don't add too much salt since bacon is salty.)
Stir and close the lid and make sure it's latched. Turn the valve to "seal" and set the Instant Pot to cook on
pressure cook mode for 30 minutes.
Let it do a natural release for 10-15 minutes.
Fluff up peas and serve.
