Rice and Pigeon Peas

Rice and Pigeon Peas

Get Ready

Servings: Serves 8

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 50 minutes

Ingredients: Add ingredients to List

3 oz salt pork
1 each small yellow onion, finely chopped
2 cups long grain white rice
1 15 oz Can pigeon peas (gandules), rinsed and drained
3 1/2 cups Water
3 sprigs Fresh thyme
8 each lime wedges

directions:

1. In a large saucepan, bring a couple of inches of water to boil. Add salt pork and blanch for 1 minute. This removes some of the saltiness. Drain and rinse under cold water.
2. Return salt pork to empty pan and heat over medium heat until the fat begins to render, about 10 minutes. There should be about 2 tablespoons melted fat. Add onion and saute until translucent, about 5 minutes.
3. Stir in rice and cook about 2 minutes.
4. Stir in pigeon peas, water, and thyme sprigs and bring to a simmer. Cook,uncovered, over medium to medium-high heat until almost all the liquid is absorbed, or until the liquid level is just below the rice, about 10 to 15 minutes.
5. Stir the rice well, then reduce heat to low, cover, and cook (without stirring) for 20 minutes, until water is absorbed. Fluff the rice with a fork and transfer to a serving bowl. Serve with lime wedges on the side.
