1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 carrots, peeled and chopped
1 small onion, chopped (1 1/4 cup)
1 stalk celery, chopped
2 (15.5 oz.) cans black-eyed peas, drained and rinsed
1 small smoked ham hock (about 12 oz.)
Salt and pepper
2 1/2 cups cooked white rice
Hot sauce, optional


Warm oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add carrots, onion and celery. Cook, stirring often, until slightly tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in peas and 1 cup water. Bring to a boil, scraping up any cooked bits.

Put ham in a slow cooker and pour pea mixture over it. Cook on low for 4 to 6 hours.

Remove ham and set aside. Season pea mixture with salt and pepper. When ham is cool enough to handle, shred it; discard fat, gristle and bone. Stir meat into peas and spoon over rice. If desired, sprinkle with hot sauce.
