DIRECTIONS

  • Soak peas overnight with water to cover by 2 inches. Drain and set aside.
  • In large Dutch oven, saute' onion and garlic in oil until onion is transparent. Add peas, oregano, chicken stock, and pork.
  • Bring to a boil; lower heat, cover and cook slowly until peas are tender, about 30-40 minutes (I usually cook mine about an hour), adding additional liquid if needed.
  • Remove shanks/hocks, setting aside until cool enough to handle; pick meat from bones and add it back to the peas (discard skin, fat, and bones). Add salt to taste.
  • Serve over rice.
