Fall into Cooking Featured Recipe: Black-Eyed Pea Soup with Collards and Ham Hocks from Jean Anderson’s Falling off the Bone
As easy as it is economical, this hearty soup takes the chill off those first frosty days of autumn, and once everything’s in the pot, virtually cooks itself. Best of all it can be made in advance and is even better after a night in the fridge. So when friends come over to watch football, serve steaming bowls of Black-Eyed Pea Soup with Collards and Ham Hocks along with chewy chunks of country bread. Nothing more is needed. Note: I use country ham hocks for this soup because of their deep smoky flavor, but "packing house" ham hocks are perfectly good. Whichever you choose, make sure there's "plenty of meat on them bones." --Jean Anderson
1 pound dried black-eyed peas, washed, sorted, and soaked overnight in enough cold water to cover
1/4 cup bacon drippings or vegetable oil
3 large yellow onions, coarsely chopped
3 large garlic cloves, finely minced
1 large bunch fresh collards (about 1 1/2 pounds), washed, trimmed, and sliced 1/2 inch thick
2 1/2 pounds meaty smoked ham hocks (see headnote)
1 quart (4 cups) beef or chicken broth
1 quart (4 cups) cold water
12 black peppercorns
1/2 teaspoon hot red pepper sauce, or to taste
Salt, if needed to taste
Drain black-eyed peas, rinse well, drain again, and set aside.
Heat drippings in a large heavy Dutch oven over moderately high heat until ripples appear on pan bottom—1 1/2 to 2 minutes.
Add onions and garlic and sauté, stirring often, until limp and lightly browned—about 10 minutes. Add collards and cook, stirring now and then, until wilted—about 5 minutes. Mix in black-eyed peas.
Anchor ham hocks in vegetables, add broth, water, and peppercorns, and bring to a boil over high heat. Adjust so liquid bubbles gently, cover, and simmer, stirring now and then, until black-eyed peas are tender and ham all but falls from bones—1½ to 2 hours.
Note: Check pot now and then and if soup threatens to scorch, reduce burner heat to lowest point and slide a diffuser underneath pot.
Lift ham hocks to a cutting board and strip meat from bones. Add to soup along with hot pepper sauce to taste, and salt, if needed. Discard bones.
Ladle into heated soup plates and accompany with freshly baked corn bread or chunks of good country bread. Better yet, cool soup, cover, and refrigerate overnight. Next day, reheat and serve.

If you've ever swooned over a bite of Beef Bourguignon or marveled at your mom's amazing pot roast, you'll love this mouthwatering collection of recipes from six-time best cookbook award winner Jean Anderson. You'll find a world of easy, economical meat dishes here so succulent they melt in your mouth and so good they're off-the-charts delicious.
In our rush to do everything on fast-forward, we forget the slow-and-low cooking methods that can turn the most common and affordable cut of meat into a supremely tender and tasty family meal. The toughest veal shank slowly simmered in broth is magically transformed into a fall-off-the-bone-tender Ossobuco. A bony beef tail stewed with vegetables becomes a deeply flavorful and nourishing Oxtail Soup. All over the world, the most satisfying and soulful meat dishes don't cost a lot of money—they just take a little more time (make that unattended time) and a little more love.
There's nothing like the aroma of an all-day stew or pot roast simmering in the kitchen as it grows more tender by the minute. Falling Off the Bone reminds you just how easy hearty home cooking can be with simple cooking instructions and basic ingredients, as well as gorgeous color photography to whet your appetite along the way. You'll find family favorites from around the world here, all made from the most affordable cuts of beef, veal, lamb, or pork.
Tuscan Veal Pot Roast in Lemon Sauce, Curried Lamb Shanks with Almond Pilaf, Onion-Smothered Chicken-Fried Steak, Spicy Braised Pork Belly with Glazed Carrots—these and oh so many more luscious family meals require just a few ingredients and a few hours of nurturing low heat. Cooked lazily in a stewpot, Dutch oven, or slow cooker, even the plainest, cheapest, most common cuts emerge more flavorful and, yes, more tender than the priciest steak at the fanciest butcher shop.
It's time to get back to the real food that brings the whole family to the table with ready smiles and eager appetites. Falling Off the Bone lets you rediscover melt-in-your-mouth meals that aren't just truly rich in taste but also easy on the budget—and even easier on the cook.
