We are going to focus on Instant Pot black eyed peas today but will share other methods of cooking as well.
Let’s start with a few basic tips:
- Make sure to Bookmark our InstaPot recipes page. We add new ones each week!
- Then LIKE our IP Facebook page for new ideas daily.
- For reference, this is the pressure cooker I have and use for all recipe creations.
We started using dry beans in our pressure cooker first when we made the most amazing no soak Instant Pot baked beans.
Then went on to make pressure cooker bean soup. Now we just can’t stop cooking from scratch because it’s so easy!
Black Eyed Peas and Ham
You can really add as many seasonings as you’d like, or just keep it simple as we did in the instructions below.
You can use just the ham hock too if that is all you have. It will lend to a lot of flavor but it is nice to have some diced ham inside too.
I find you can make it two ways, as a kind of black eyed peas soup and a thicker version where it is more like a baked beans consistency with ham in it. Either way it’s super flavorful and homemade in every way.
This Instant Pot black eyed peas recipe below is thicker but you can thin either one out with just some broth or water.
We are a sucker for soups year round, and especially when it is chilly outside. Of course you can make black eyed peas and ham on the stovetop.
Ever since I bought my Instant Pot I just don’t see the need for that when you can get beans and such tender in 30-60 minutes flat without soaking at all overnight.
Here’s a quick step by step but there’s a printable recipe card at the bottom too.
