Note: I've cooked the peas on the stovetop for 4½ hours, the meat will fall apart, but if you're wondering why I didn't start cooking the peas earlier is if you cooked the peas for 4 hours on the stovetop they would become a mush. I added them half way through to keep them firm and buttery.

Enjoy !!!
