This will be the 3rd New Years Eve that I have used this recipe. I serve it over white rice and Honey Butter Cornbread on the side and my family loves it!!

Super flavor!
Used smoked pork and sauteed onions in butter.
Cooking time for me was quite different -perhaps the type of slow cooker I used.
2 hours on high and 1 hour on low.
I will definitely make again.

I made this exactly as directed and it turned out very good. The peas were very tender. I made it for a bbq we had last weekend and everyone liked it very much.
