Another childhood fav! This one takes me to my nanna's house in NZ!

Ingredients (serves 6)

  • 4-8 Pork bone peices
  • 6 Thick Sausages
  • 4 Large potatoes
  • 1 Large Kumara or Sweet Potato
  • 3 Carrots
  • 2 Large bunches of Watercress Or Cabbage
  • 8 Dough boys ( see My other recipe's for how to make )


  1. Place meat & watercress in large pot and boil until tender. Meat is cooked when it is almost falling off the bone.
  2. 1/2 Hour before serving add chunky vege's.
  3. Make dough boys ( see recipe ) and add to pot about 5 mins before serving.
  4. Served traditionally with lots of buttered bread. ( not so traditionally in my family also with tomato sauce lol )
