Season the outside of pork with More Spice Seasoning. In a medium to large sauté pan, heat olive oil on medium heat. Brown pork loin on all sides and remove from pan. Add onion, celery, and garlic to the pan. Cook one minute before adding black eyed peas and stock. Stir and bring to a boil. Re-add the pork to the pan, nestled in the peas. Cover and cook about ten minutes or until loin is cooked through. Meanwhile, heat a fry pan and render fat from the bacon. Remove the crisp bacon pieces to the side. Add Brussels to the pan and cook two minutes. Add cabbage and anise, and stir. Splash with stock to lightly steam and adjust seasoning with Creole Seasoning. Serve peas and cabbage with sliced loin drizzled with the pan gravy from the peas. Yummy!
