Yield: 8 Servings
Categories: Rice, Vegetarian, Stews, Low-Fat


-Dried black-eyed peas
1/2 Onion

1 x Lipton Rice 'n' Sauce Cajun 1 tb Pepper 1 x Stew Meat 1 ts Creole or
Cajun seasoning 1 x Bell pepper
Cayenne pepper or hot sauce

Look thru peas for rocks and wash through 3 waters. Soak peas in water
overnight in fridge. The next day, throw out water they soaked in; some
claim this keeps beans from giving you a problem, but stay on this diet a
couple weeks and you won't have a problem anyway. It goes away. Wash stew
meat and put stew meat and pre-soaked peas in big pot on stove and bring to
boil, with PLENTY of water. Add seasonings to taste. If you use Cajun
seasoning it contains salt; so don't add extra salt!!!! Otherwise, add salt
to taste. When stew meat and peas come to a boil, reduce to Medium and
keep watching to add water so they don't scorch. After about 40 minutes add
packet of Rice and Sauce, preferably Cajun flavor. Start watching the water
really carefully now, and add a pint from time to time. After about 20
minutes of rice cooking, add bell pepper, onion, and more seasonings if you
need. (This dish is good hot and peppery) Everything should be ready at
the same time. When test bite shows all is ready, eat!
