I wanted to make something that we haven't had in a long time. Veal stew...try it. Serve with mashed potatoes, rice or noodles, or pasta.
1 lb lean veal chunks, salted and peppered
1 lb quartered mushrooms
1/2 cup white wine
1/2 onion, chopped
1 carrot, sliced
3 cloves garlic, sliced
1 TBS tomato paste
1/2 cup chopped tomatoes
1 - 15 oz can tomato sauce
1/2 cup chopped parsley or basil
Salt and pepper to taste
Dry the veal with paper towels. Salt and pepper the pieces and flour lightly.
In large saucepan add a few TBS of olive oil. Let it get hot, then lower the heat when carefully browning the veal chunks on both sides. Create a space to add the onions, carrot and garlic. Saute and combine with the browned veal. Splash the white wine and let it simmer until you don't smell the alcohol, approximately 5 minutes. Add the tomato paste, cook the paste into the veal mixture before adding the tomatoes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Stir the veal and combine the tomatoes.
I added cooked prepared mushrooms to my veal. Cover with heavy lid and let simmer checking to stir every 15 minutes. It will take approximately 1 and 1/2 hours or until the veal is tender.
I served it over bow-tie pasta.
