Brown butter in a saucepan with a few rinsed and well dried sage leaves, add the meat pieces, salt, pepper, and brown evenly.
Remove the sage and wet with a small glass of cognac, then pour a cup of broth where you have diluted the tomato sauce and extend the cooking time by 1 hour. At this point, add the fresh ginned peas, diced ham, and lean bacon, mix well and leave on the stove for another 1/2 hour.
