I think we all know that the Holiday's are full of good food, and lots of cooking. I mean lots of cooking. From that once a year glorious Thanksgiving Turkey to the New Year festivities with the Christmas dinners and baking in between I hate to admit that I could sometimes use a break from the kitchen. So, why not make the first dinner of the year an easy one? Turn all of those traditional New Year dishes into one and make a delicious good luck stew? Don't wait for the New Year though. This stew is delicious any time. We could always use a plate of good luck!
2 LB Pork Roast (these can be purchased reasonably between the end of November and the middle of December)
1 Small Onion Minced
1 Medium Green Pepper Minced
4 Garlic Cloves minced
2 TBS Kosher Salt
2 TBS Ground Pepper
10 OZ PKG Uncooked Black Eye Peas
1 8 OZ Package Pealed Whole Baby Carrots
3 Cups Fresh Baby Spinach
1 Medium Stalk Broccoli
3 Cups Shredded Cabbage
Place pork roast in a 6 Quart crock pot with onion, green pepper, garlic salt and pepper. Cook on high for 3 hours. After 3 hours add Black Eye Peas and Carrots. Reduce heat on crock pot and cook an additional 2 hours or until carrots began to turn tender. Once carrots have began to turn tender add spinach, broccoli and cabbage. Cover and let simmer in crock for an additional 30 to 45 minutes until broccoli is tender, but not overdone. Serve with fresh baked biscuits.
