These Instant Pot Black-Eyed Peas are super simple to make. I like to add a can of chopped tomatoes containing spicy chopped green chiles for a little extra sumpin’. These could actually be the best blacked eyed peas you ever tasted! #TexasHomesteader
Press the SAUTE button, then add 1 Tablespoon bacon grease. When the grease is melted add the chopped onion and cook stirring occasionally with a wooden spatula for about 3 or 4 minutes or until translucent. Add the minced garlic and cook another minute. Cancel the sauté function.
Pour in 5 cups chicken broth (or water), add 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper, the rinsed, unsoaked black-eyed peas and an undrained can of chopped tomatoes.
Close and lock the lid, set the pressure release valve to the SEALING position. Press PRESSURE COOK and HIGH PRESSURE and use the + or - buttons to select 16 minutes. (NOTE: Instant Pot can take about 8-10 minutes to come to selected pressure, so be sure to add that to your estimated serving time.)
I used a 6-quart Instant Pot Duo-60.
IP could take 8-10 minutes to come to pressure, be sure to allow that time in planning your serving time.
