Remove meat and rub with mustard powder and crushed peppercorns.

Add the remaining vegetables to the onions in the base of the pot and place the meat on top.
Cover the meat with the slices of spek.
Add the capers, bay leaf and lemon zest.
Heat the wine and lemon juice and pour over the meat.
Cover with a tight-fitting lid, reduce heat and simmer until tender, or cook in a preheated 160 °C oven until the meat is tender, turning it over once or twice if cooking on top of the stove.
