  • 1 Veal knuckle
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 lb Chicken
  • 1 1/2 lb Topside top round of beef
  • 6 Black peppercorns
  • 2 Bay leaves
  • 1 1/2 tsp Dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp Dried thyme
  • 2 Leeks coarsely chopped
  • 2 Celery stalks chopped
  • 1 lb Carrots sliced
  • 12 Small white onions peeled and left whole
  • 1 Medium white cabbage quartered
  • 2 lb Potatoes sliced
  • 1 Italian boiling sausage


  • Put the veal knuckle into a very large, heavy saucepan and half-fill the pan with water.
  • Add the salt and bring to the boil, skimming any scum from the surface.
  • Boil the knuckle for 45 minutes. Add the chicken, beef, peppercorns and herbs, and bring to the boil again.
  • Reduce the heat to low, cover the pan and simmer for 1 1/2 hours.
  • Add the vegetables and boiling sausage and top up the water if necessary so that it almost covers them.
  • Bring to the boil again. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for a further 1 hour, or until the meat and vegetables are cooked through and tender. Remove and discard the veal knuckle and bay leaves. Remove the meat, chicken and sausage to a chopping board. Carve the meat into slices, the chicken into serving pieces and the sausage into bite-sized portions. Arrange them on a heated platter and surround them with the vegetables.
  • Moisten the meat and vegetables with about 5 tablespoons of the stock and serve at once.
