EMERIL LIVE SHOW #EMIA14 In a large sauce pan, add the beef, pork, chicken, sausage, chorizo, bacon, bouquets, bay leaves and water. Season with salt and pepper. Bring the liquid up to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Cook for about 1 1/2 hours or until the meat is tender. Remove the meat from the pan and set aside. Add the turnips, carrots, and potatoes. Bring the liquid back to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Cook for 20 minutes. Add the cabbage and continue to cook for 30 minutes. Slice the beef, pork loin, sausage and chorizo, 1/2-inch thick. Dice the bacon. In a hot saute pan, render the bacon until crispy. About 5 minutes before the cabbage is done, return the beef, pork, chicken and sausages to the pot.
