Instant Pot black eyed peas seasoned with the leftover Christmas ham bone is real good eatin’ for any New Year’s Day feast — and might even bring you good luck! These spotted beans cook up to a wonderfully soft texture in no time. Plus, they don’t require any extra time to pre-soak.
Place black-eyed in a colander and rinse with cool water to remove any debris. Remove any small rocks that may be in the beans. Add the peas to the pressure cooker along with the ham hock (or salted pork), onion, water, and apple cider vinegar.
When finished, allow the cooker to natural release — waiting to open the lid until after the float valve drops.
