got the pork part covered. I used to have a black eye pea salad recipe years ago that had onions red vinegar some pepper and stuff. It has disappeared with one of my previous live-ins. :emoji_stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
any good recipes out there? ribs take 5 hours so should fit that time frame. I'm not all that bitchy bout canned because it's too late to soak and cook.

I just did some last minute ham and beans a couple days ago . I used an instant pot . If you have one , that makes short work of it with great results . I used dry beans and some home cured and smoked hocks .

While I usually soak black eyed peas overnight, it isn't absolutely necessary.

I cook them with an onion, some garlic and black pepper. Don't add salt until about 3 hours in.

Anyway, slice up some ham or bacon and pork sausage. Throw them all in, bring to a boil and simmer for at least 4 hours. Add the salt about 3 hours in, otherwise, I feel it dries out the peas too quickly.

Good Luck with your search. I've been meaning to look up a recipe for that. This thread spurred me to do just that. Wow, the variations on the theme are mind boggling. It all looks and sounds so good. She-Beast loves blackeyed peas from the can, straight up, maybe a little bacon grease. I like to cook them from dry with lots of onion and bacon bits and the grease from the fried bacon bits. Not exactly heart healthy. The more you dress them up the more I like them, hence my interest in the salads.
OP, here's a couple of recipes for roadmaps. They are of the some of this and some of that variety. They are intended to be dips but could be called salads too I think.
