I love Black eyed peas! and this is one of my favorite ways to make it. First I throw a bag of uncooked black eyed peas into a crock pot and add cut up onion; my guys like the onion sliced this way, but you can slice anyway you would like. I add a bit of salt and pepper into the pot also.
Second I begin browning the elk meat in a small frying pan with about a tablespoon of real butter and I add celery salt to this for more favoring to the meat and stew later on.Once the meat is browned I just toss it all into the crock pot and add 3 cans of veggie broth or stock and 2 cups of water and I set the crock pot on high for half the day and low for the rest of the day, so start this in the morning and by evening time it will be ready. The done stew should be thick and the peas nice and tender, then I serve it with hot corn on the cob and corn bread muffins with cheese baked into the muffins.
