 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1       x            -Dried black-eyed peas
      1/2                Onion
 
   1 x Lipton Rice 'n' Sauce Cajun
   1 tb Pepper
   1 x Stew Meat
   1 ts Creole or Cajun seasoning
   1 x Bell pepper
        Cayenne pepper or hot sauce
   
   Look thru peas for rocks and wash through 3 waters.
   Soak peas in water overnight in fridge.  The next day,
   throw out water they soaked in; some claim this keeps
   beans from giving you a problem, but stay on this diet
   a couple weeks and you won't have a problem anyway. It
   goes away. Wash stew meat and put stew meat and
   pre-soaked peas in big pot on stove and bring to boil,
   with PLENTY of water. Add seasonings to taste. If you
   use Cajun seasoning it contains salt; so don't add
   extra salt!!!! Otherwise, add salt to taste.  When
   stew meat and peas come to a boil, reduce to Medium
   and keep watching to add water so they don't scorch.
   After about 40 minutes add packet of Rice and Sauce,
   preferably Cajun flavor. Start watching the water
   really carefully now, and add a pint from time to
   time. After about 20 minutes of rice cooking, add bell
   pepper, onion, and more seasonings if you need.  (This
   dish is good hot and peppery) Everything should be
   ready at the same time. When test bite shows all is
   ready, eat!
