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 )

  • Is the liquid discarded. Reminds me of my dad’s vege soup. We’d eat the broth with pasta and add the soft meat and veges to it.


  • Never heard of if before, interesting!


  • So interesting! I’ve always wanted to try boil up as hubby said he grew up eating this so I’m going to attempt to make it and hopefully it’s how he remembers it to be.
