I made this minus the ham hock (we were having Kalua Pork made in my other IP). I used all the remaining bean liquid in lieu of the water (had to add a little bit of water) and pressure cooked the rice to ensure that it would be cooked (instructions do not clearly state to pressure cook the rice). Ended up seasoning with some Cajun seasoning (in addition to salt and pepper) and my family really enjoyed it!
This was beyond amazing! We used fresh black-eyed peas, so the first cook time was about 10 minutes. I made a wee bit more rice, because we're from Savannah and that's how we roll ... added more liquid from the beans. Fabulous! All had seconds.
Why would you throw away the onion and garlic? I never do that, just put them back in with the peas. And one green onion isn't nearly enough.
Other than that, it's a great recipe.
This is a good recipe, it makes more than 4 cups, but very pleased with it. The short little video also helped. Thank you.
I loved the recipe. I prefer my beans less mushy, so I recommend staying on the short end for cooking time there. But the flavors came together great. Took a little longer than expected to cook because of the time to get pot up to proper heat on each step. Thanks for sharing!
This was a first attempt at both the recipe and my new CPE. It turned out wonderful. Recommend watching the video. Was unsure of the releases as to whether they were quick or natural. They were both quick.
I've never had good Hoppn' John until I made this recipe. Very flavorable and tender. Excellent recipe.
