Anne's Veal St Clements #blog12daysxmas Day 10
One of my all time favourite veal recipes is Veal St Clements from Two in the kitchen by Rita Erlich and my old teacher, Dennis Pryor. This is my take on the recipe, inspired also by the two stage cooking process that Abla (The Lebanese Kitchen) uses for her Chicken wings in garlic recipe. But again it is a modified version where I have reversed the stages so that the veal doesn't dry out. It is also a shorter process than the long, slow simmer suggested by Rita and Dennis, but I think it comes up with the same delicious combination of flavours of veal, orange, lemon and red wine but through a different pathway. Why don't you try both and see which you prefer?
I served the veal on wholemeal rice with sweet potato that had been roasted with whole garlic cloves and rosemary.
