      So how does a redneck from Mississippi cook black-eyed peas Korean style. Here we go.

      1lb black-eyed peas
      4oz diced ham
      4 cups water
      1 yellow onion diced
      1 green bell pepper diced
      4 cloves garlic diced
      4 cups water
      3 tbs fermented soybean paste
      1 tbs gochugaru
      1 tbs soup soy-sauce
      1 tbs mirin
      3 green onions chopped up nice

      I start soaking beans just before going to bed and cook them when I get home from work.

      You probably should saute the onion and garlic but I did not.
      Put the water in the pot and turn heat to med high, as it is warming add the peas, garlic, onion, bell pepper and ham. Chop as you go.

      By now you should be starting to simmer add the soybean paste, gochugaru, soup soy sauce, and mirin. Use sugar or rice syrup if you do not have mirin.
      Once it starts to boil turn heat to medium and cook until the peas are done to your preference.

      When the peas are cooked to perfection add the chopped green onions and allow to rest for 5 minutes or so.

      Four cups of water is a lot but it cooked down nicely and I want juicy peas on lots of rice.

      If you don’t know about hoppin john google it, it is a southern tradition on new years day for good luck.
      I really like this recipe, next I’m going to see if I can come up with a jambalaya Korean style. It can be done I know it can.
