Cut meats into 2-inch size chunks and place in large bowl. Add the herbs, garlic, bracked peppercorns, and chopped parsley. Pour wine over the mixture and marinate overnight. Remove meats from marinade. Season with additional salt and freshly ground pepper.
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Butter the inside of a 3-quart earthenware casserole. Begin with a layer of potatoes and onions (season each layer with salt and pepper), then add a layer of combined meats. Continue alternating layers, finishing with a layer of potatoes. Pour marinage over all, place the bay leaves on top, and cover the pot. To prevent steam from escaping, seal all around the lid with a dough paste made by mixting flour and water to a dough consistency. Bake for two hours. Serve in the same pot directly from the oven with a green salad.
