Directions

Render down the bacon in a large stockpot over medium-high heat until crispy, 10 to 12 minutes.

Add the onions and saute for 2 to 3 minutes. Sprinkle with just a little salt; too much will make the black-eyed peas break up later. Stir in the ham hocks, bringing them to the bottom of the pot to braise for 3 to 4 minutes.

Pour in the chicken stock and stir in the black-eyed peas, thyme, garlic and bay leaves. Bring to a boil, and then reduce to a slow simmer. Cook until the peas are tender, 2 hours to 2 hours 30 minutes.

Remove the pork meat, finely mince it and then return to the pot. Remove the thyme and bay leaves.
