Dice and fry the potatoes until golden brown. Set the potatoes aside. Cut the meat in half portion size and season with salt and pepper. In a large Dutch oven, brown the meat in olive oil. Once the color is achieved, add the minced onion, garlic and parsley. Cook for 3 minutes, until the onion is translucent. Incorporate the brandy to deglaze the bottom of the pot with it. Once the alcohol has evaporated add the stock and the fried potatoes. Let the dish simmer covered for about 40 minutes or until the meat is tender. Add sweet peas, uncover and cook for five more minutes. Serve garnished with fresh parsley.
