Originally called "Hoppin' John" this is a southern dish usually made with ham. This is Iowa, we want beef so I swapped it for the ham and changed the name.
1 pound ground beef
1/2 c green (or mix of red and green) pepper, diced
1/2 c onion, diced
1 can blackeye peas, undrained
Cooked brown rice
In large skillet cook peppers, onions, and beef until the vegetables are tender and the beef is thoroughly cooked.Stir in blackeye peas (you may or may not want all of the liquid.)
Serve over cooked brown rice.
