  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Soups

 Ingredients List

  • 2 lb Best end of neck Welsh lamb
  • 1/2 lb Carrots
  • 2 Large leeks
  • 1/2 oz Flour
  • 1 Small swede (Turnip)
  • 1 lb Potatoes
  • 1 oz Parsley
  • Salt and pepper


Put the meat into the saucepan, cover with cold water, add salt and pepper,
bring slowly to the boil and skin carefully. (This can be done the night
before and the fat allowed to set on the surface. This makes it easier to
skim off.)

Then add the carrots (cut in half), the swede (sliced) and the white of the
leeks, and simmer gently for 2 - 2 1/2 hours.
Add the potatoes (cut in four) and continue to simmer for another 30

When the potatoes are almost cooked, thicken with flour and a little water.

Lastly, add the green of the leeks and parsley (chopped) and simmer for
further 10 minutes and serve in basins while hot.

Cawl was the dish most commonly served for dinner on the farm during the
winter months in th ecounties of South and West Wales.

The broth itself would be served in basins or bowls, with bread, and the
meat and vegetables served as a second course.
