Soak the beef for 4 hours in cold water. Peel and cut up the vegetables roughly. Put into large pan with the drained beef, peppercorns and cloves. Cover and simmer for 6 hours. Lift out the meat, drain it well and wrap in a clean piece of cloth or muslin. Put on to a board and put a flat plate or tin on top.
