Peel an onion and chop it finely. Cleanse vegetables, wash them and chop.
Cut the pork into halves and interlard it with some bacon.
Cook the prepared meat in oil on all sides.
Throw spices and bay leaf in a pot of water and let it simmer. Mix salt in.
Render remaining bacon left from step 2 in a pot. Take the cracklings out, add onion to the lard and cook. Pour sugar in, stir in mustard, allow it to caramelize for a while.
Mix vegetables in, pour in vinegar and lemon juice. We can even add a little lemon zest from lemon without chemical treatment. Mix, pour water in and braise for 15 minutes covered.
Put meat into vegetables and pour it over with prepared strained salted water in which the spices were cooked. Braise covered until meat becomes tender (for about 1,5 - 2 hours). Pour water in, if necessary, it should cover half of the meat.
Take the tender meat out. Mix whipping cream with flour in milk. Pour it into vegetables, bring to boil and mix with a hand blender. To our taste season with salt, add sugar or vinegar.
Slice the meat, pour it over with sauce and serve with dumpling.
