5. Add the onions, leeks, and potatoes. Continue to simmer until the meat is tender and the vegetables are cooked. The potatoes should break down somewhat and thicken the stew.

7. Garnish each portion with chopped parsley.
Carrots and white turnips may be cooked with the stew or cooked separately and added as a garnish.
