My aunt gave me this delicious recipe years ago, and it's still my favorite veal dish! This tomato and white wine sauce keeps the meat tender and moist during cooking. Serve over buttered noodles. Hope you enjoy it as much as our family does.

Deeeelish! I altered the recipe a bit: Add (1) bay leaf, 1/2 C. chicken stock,(2) carrots, (2) celery, (2) potatoes, dash of oregano, and 1/2 canelli beans (optional). Words of advice: Sautee onions, carrots, celery, and garlic together. And add the potatoes and the beans in the last 1/2 hour so they don't get too mushy. I like this dish served over white rice. Great recipe; thanks Marie!!! Read More

Really bland uninteresting. Needs something more. I would not make this again without embellishing it somehow. Really dull! Read More

This recipe was AWESOME! My husband, daughter and mother enjoyed it immensely. I made a few changes though: I added 4tps Worchestchire, roasted my garlic as well as my diced tomatoes, and added a spring of thyme and rosemary in the last 30 mins. HINT: This stew is even better a day after cooking. So with that in mind, cook today and SERVE tomorrow. Crusty bread and white wine round out this hearty stew. Read More

This recipe was extremely easy to make and the veal was so tender. I think next time I will add some vegetables such as carrots and celery and perhaps a bay leaf because hubby and I felt like the recipe needed something else. Definitely will try again. Read More

Before adding the veal I tossed in some flour salt pepper and paprika. Quickly browned the meat removed then added onions garlic and 1/2 cu red wine. After cooking for a few minutes & scraping up brown bits reintroduced the meat and other ingredients. Also added 1T of tomato paste to deepen flavor. Absolutely delicious! Read More

I always hate when I read reviews and people mention how they changed the recipie but that's just what I did. I had no white wine in the house so I used red and made it in the crockpot with mushrooms and peas. Everyone Loved it!! Read More

This veal dish was excellent! When I added the white wine I was worried because I didn't like the aroma but as it simmered it became heavenly! The meat was tender and melted in your mouth. I let it simmer an extra half hour than the recipe called for and served it over noodles. This one will become a favorite at my house! Read More

My husband's favorite! I do not change a thing. I just add some sliced carrots when I put everything together. I let that simmer on the stove for few hours. With about 20-30 minutes left I add some sliced mushrooms. YUM! Serve over egg noodles or if you want a real treat mashed potatoes. FYI...Finding veal stew meat at first was a huge challenge. Whole Foods sells it and it reasonable. Read More

First of all this recipe is delicious and we will be making it again soon and for company. We did add fresh sliced mushrooms near the end of the cooking time and it was a good addition. I would like to think of a different name for this dish because it is not a traditional stew. I mixed the leftovers with the leftover noodles and the next day after having it for lunch my husband said it was even better if that's possible! Read More

I don't cook veal that much because I'm just not used to the flavor - but this recipe is fantastic. My meat-picky kids liked this too. It smells heavenly cooking. Read More
