So, I tried making Bludawg's Hop John recipe, but I must have done something wrong. The peas were great, cooked down just short of mushing up absolutely the way I like them. However, the rice wasn't anywhere near done. I ended up adding two extra cups of water and boiling for ten minutes, then resting for ten more. That got it to nearly done and edible. I think next time I am going to cook the rice separately and stir it in when the peas are done. I ate a bowl full last night and will be rewarming the rest for lunch today with the family and the pork loin about to go in the oven (BAD weather, no cooking outside today). Any other ideas as to how I went wrong?
