Heat the oil in a saucepan over high heat. Add the onions and sautČ for 1 minute. Add the tasso, garlic, peas, and Creole Seasoning and stir-fry for 1 minute.
Add the stock and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium, cover, and cook for 15 minutes. Uncover, stir once, re-cover, and simmer for 15 minutes. Add the salt, stir, cover again, and simmer for a final 10 minutes, or until the peas are tender. Remove from the heat.
