Presoak cleaned dried black-eyed peas by covering with cold water and allowing to soak overnight.
Or use the quick soak method: cover dried black-eyed peas with water and bring to a boil. Cover with a lid and turn burner off. Allow beans to soak at least 30 minutes.
Drain and dispose of water for either method.
Add all ingredients to your pressure cooker pot. Seal with lid and cook depending on your pressure cooker's directions. I used an electric pressure cooker, which included a preheat and then cooked the beans for 7 minutes once the preheat was over.
For those wanting to use the traditional cooking method: Add all ingredients to a large pot. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer, cooking until beans are tender.
Remove beans from either pot. Adjust seasoning and serve.
