I typically do a basic recipe with the collards and blackeyed peas, then mix with rice. This year I did it a bit different and really enjoyed the outcome.
Everything in the Crock!
3 tbsp minced garlic
2 bags black eyed peas
2 boxes frozen spinach or 1 bag frozen collards
2 cups leftover ham + the bone
1 can diced tomatoes
8-10 cups stock (1 used 5 chicken & 5 beef boullion cubes + 6ish cups water)
I added a bag of frozen okra this year (<- Definite keeper!)
Crock 8-10 hours on low or keep warm.
My daughter thought 'poor mans stew' was good enough to have more often than once a year!!!
Steam rice and serve atop.
Happy NEW YEAR!
