Place the meat in a casserole and add the water and salt. Bring to a boil uncovered over medium heat. Let simmer about 30 minutes, removing any surface impurities. If the water boils too rapidly, add 125 mL (1/2 cup) of cold water to slow the boil and help the remaining impurities rise to the surface. Remove the additional impurities as required.

Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Partially cover to keep the bouillon clear. Simmer until the meat is tender (about 2 to 3 hours).

Remove the meat and serve with the vegetables and boiled potatoes.
