I made this by the recipe for friends and they raved about it. Butter peas are easy to find in most Southern states in the freezer section. John Boy and Billy's BBQ sauce is great to add extra spice.
Very nice, although my husband wanted a little more meat so I did that and liked it better the second time around. I guess the fact that fresh vegetables were called for gives it the name of "Summer" Stew but frozen ones could be substituted in the winter and it would be just as great.
One of my family's favorite stews, though I'm not sure what makes this a "summer" version. It's still quite heavy. I couldn't find lady peas or butter peas, so I used lima beans. Buying smoked pulled pork from a BBQ place makes this really easy. I highly recommend.
I used a pound of BBQ turkey from Whit's in Nashville instead of pork. I also used baby Lima beans, as I was not familiar with lady peas. It was fantastic.
