Bring 3 litres of water to the boil. Add salt to taste, then add your washed and diced beef. Add bay leaves, beef stock cubes and black pepper allow to simmer for 90 minutes so meat becomes soft.
When meat is soft add sweetcorn, kidney beans, celery sticks, leek, chorizo, cabbage, garlic and carrots, and allow to cook for another half an hour. Then add vinegar, tomato puree, sugar and parsley then leave to simmer for another half hour.
