Add the ham, bacon and pork, pour in the wine and the stock, add salt and pepper to taste, then cover, bring to the boil and cook over a gentle heat for 1 1/2 hours. Peel the potatoes, and place them on the choucroute, add the Montbéliard sausages and leave to cook a further 30 min.

Place the choucroute in a serving dish in a mound, surrounded by the meat and vegetables.
