Stew peas and Rice is one of Jamaica’s favourite comfort foods. My family loves it, but because I usually have to prep some ingredients overnight it’s not what I would call a quick-fix dinner … until now! I have created a Quick Stew Peas recipe that tastes so good you won’t remember it was only made in an hour. I replace the traditional salted pig’s tail with cooked ham and use canned instead of dry kidney beans. In my traditional Stew Peas recipe you have to soak both of these ingredients in water overnight. Now you don’t have to do that! Instead just put all the ingredients in the pot and simmer … and in 20 minutes it’s ready to eat!
