Cream Peas

On the last night of June, we had our friends Andy and Heather over for a BBQ. We had wonderful Hanger Steaks which if you haven't yet found the joy that is a Hanger Steak, I suggest you seek them out. It's the meat under the jaw of a cow and there is only one Hanger Steak per cow. Trevor's brother, Bryan, first introduced them to us and we've had them several times since. A little hard to find, but well worth the effort. We served the Hanger Steaks with some grilled potato packets, salad and Cream Peas. The peas were an after thought and we weren't sure if Andy and Heather liked peas... hence the salad just in case. However, the peas turned out great! I'm sure the healthiness of the peas is washed out by the butter and cream, but at least it's a "wash" instead of a loss right?!

You can find the recipe I used here. They were very easy. I think next time I might try using milk instead of cream to make them a tiny bit healthier. 

Finished product read to serve!
They do seem to get cold rather fast, so it's not a make ahead dish.

Letting the peas come to a boil in water and salt.

Added in the butter, and cream/flour/sugar mixture.
