Place all of the ingredients (except peas) in a 7 quart dutch oven or crock pot cook in a 325 oven for 4 hours, or 7-8 hours in a crock pot. Check to add more beef stock if necessary 3/4 through the cooking time.
Remove the potatoes and stir the peas in the pot and let them cook for only another 10 minutes. Add lots of fresh pepper and salt if necessary.
Mash the potatoes with sour cream, butter, cream and a few tablespoons of the beef broth from the crock pot. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Serve each plate with the stew topped with the mashed potatoes and a bit of broth on top.
