Ingredients

  • 1 pound dried black-eyed peas (rinsed, but not pre-soaked)
  • 6.5 cups stock (chicken, ham or vegetable - I used 6.5 cups water, plus 2 Tablespoons Better Than Bullion Chicken Base)
  • 5 ounces diced ham

Instructions

  1. Add all ingredients to the Instant Pot, place the lid on and lock it.

  2. Cook for 30 minutes at high manual pressure. (Note: It will take a little while to come to pressure)

  3. Allow the pot to release naturally. Mine took about 30 minutes, FYI.

  4. Salt and pepper to taste. (Note: Mine did not need any salt since the ham and the Better Than Bullion was so salty.)

Recipe Notes

I like my black-eyed peas really soft and well-done, with a few falling apart. These were perfect for me! If you like yours more firm, reduce cook time by a few minutes.
