Mom's Black-Eyed Peas

"This is a family variation of a Lebanese green bean and meat stew. I grew up eating this every New Year's, and it is the only way my family will eat their peas! I try to include 1 bag of frozen field peas with snaps in my recipe. "

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium-low heat; cook and stir the onions in the melted butter until translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the beef and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the meat is tender and the juices have cooked away, about 30 minutes.
  2. Stir in the garlic and peas; pour in enough water to cover. Bring the mixture to a boil, cover, and simmer over low heat until the peas change color and are tender and hot, and almost all of the liquid has been absorbed, about 1 hour.

This is delicious and filling. However, it had a lot of meat in comparison to the black-eyed peas, even though I decreased the meat down to 2 lbs. I think an extra package of black-eyed peas c...

Hey this is really good! The beef is a nice change from the same old ham or pork. I will make this again and it will be before next new years! Thank you L. Milfon for sharing.

This was a good recipe, but very high in fat, cholesterol, sodium and carbs.

This recipe was extremely bland! I wanted to try something different with the peas but I should've stuck with the 'Southern way' pork pork and more pork. There wasn't any flavor to these at all!
