Cawl - it's Welsh for soup

Yummy soup
Auntie Anne has been to Wales and tasted some very yummy soup called lobscows, but it's also sometimes known as cawl.  (pronounced 'cowl')
A nice bit of brisket
Basically it's a thickened vegetable stock with pieces of meat, usually lamb or beef. You can either start with a piece of meat, such as neck of lamb, or a bit of brisket, and boil it with vegetables to make a stock; or you can make a basic veg soup and add bits of meat to it afterwards. 
Cut out the fatty bits from the meat
It's a great way to use up leftover meat and to make sure you don't waste tail-ends of vegetables in your cupboard.
