Happy New Year’s Eve!

It is almost time for a new year and growing up in the south that usually means having a serving of black eyed peas for good luck. As a kid, I clearly remember my mother stocking up on dry black eye peas and serving with a side of pork and some greens. This tradition has stuck with me through adulthood with the exception of making it as simple as possible.

The first day of the new year is when the frantic holiday season begins to slow down. It is also not a day that I want to spend loads of time in the kitchen preparing a meal. So I opt to pull out the slow cooker and create this dump and go meal.

For this recipe, you will need canned black eyed peas, boneless pork chops, and a few other ingredients. You will layer everything in the slow cooker to ensure that everything cooks evenly and the meat is not overdone. This meal is comforting, flavorful, and a great way to start off the year.
