This is a very old soup popular in the North of England and Scotland. Here
the "hough" of the animal is used.
Cut the meat into small peices. Melt fat in a saucepan and add the meat
and vegetables. Fry slowly until browned. Add the water. Bring to the boil
and skim off excess fat. Cover and simmer gently for 3-4 hours. Skim and
then strain soup into a clean saucepan. Add sago to soup. Quickly bring
soup to the boil. Cover and simmer gently until Sago is cooked. Season with
salt and pepper to taste. Serves approx. 4.
