Braised Veal Shanks with Fresh Herbs

We don’t serve hamburgers and hotdogs when our lake friends are invited over for dinner… I go for the gusto and prepared Braised Veal Shanks with Fresh Herbs from my garden and served over parsnip puree! The only thing left on every ones plate was the bone! I guess that means – enjoyed by all…

This is a great Paleo Recipe and of course Italian Recipes prepared especially for yoy…..

Last minute I decided to chop up more fresh herbs and top with a gremolata. A gremolata is a herb (parsley) condiment that is chopped with fresh parsley, lemon zest, garlic which is traditionally accompanies braised veal but I love to add to braised short ribs and even chicken milanese.

Cubanelle and Veal Bolognese

I have found myself to have daily visits to Joseph's Classic Market theses days and creating new recipes.

Not only do we have amazing markets here in Palm Beach Gardens but our farmers markets are spectacular spectacular and only 2 miles from my house each Sunday.  How perfect is that for me!  At the market I always go to Benders tent as they have everything I need and it's fresh.  The prices are great and it's per items so there is no waiting to weigh.  They had cubanella peppers 4 for $1.00.  Of course I got 4 and grilled 2 with our steak dinner.  Looking at the remaining 2 this dish came to me and I served it with sweet potato pasta!  YUMMY Paleo dinner....

Cindy's Tip!  I marinated the veal for 2 hours in the refrigerator then let them come to room temperature while the grill was heating up.

Herb Crusted Veal Chops

I have so many herbs growing in the garden and when my husband came home with Veal Loin Chops this recipe was created. I combined all of my herbs together and this dish was delicious! This was served with my Sweet Potato Pie

I did however take the loin chops out of the package and season them with salt and pepper on both sides then put into a plastic bag and add minced garlic and olive oil. Seal and refrigerate for 3 hours.

You can make this a paleo recipe by omitting the parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs.

I love Italian dishes! Of course I do....  However when it's just Glenn and I preparing a great meal in one pot makes me very happy!  That means I get to spend more time with Glenn enjoying a glass of wine and catching up from our busy days.

I hope you enjoy this dish and you can do the same with eggplant or chicken!

Enjoy

Veal Chop Milanese

Veal Chop Milanese

As an Italian a "cutlet" or "milanese" are very common for a quick meal.  I love how some people get so excited when they see a Milanese on the menu as it does sound sexy and fancy but it is so easy!  

This recipe is very traditional. Some chefs like to add parmesan cheese in the breadcrumb mixture but I don't with the veal but I do with chicken.  I just like a simple veal cutlet then topped with a salad and drizzled with extra-virgin olive oil.

 

My 2 cents:  If you want to make this Paleo you can omit the breadcrumbs and combine mixed nuts and almond meal but to be honest with you it burns during the cooking process.  It is really worth wasting a good piece of meat?

I have tried it several times and it's really not that good!  I suppose "real" paleo caveman didn't dredge their veal in eggs then a nut mixture anyway but just cooked over a fire.  Therefore if you want to enjoy a true Italian Veal Milanese then enjoy it..  If anyone tells you they are 100% Paleo - they are full of crap!  This recipe is so yummy and I hope you enjoy.

Veal Medallions Over A Pea Salad With A Lemon Sauce

As I was planning my post for Veal Made Easy, the perfect recipe came to me!  Veal medallions over a pea salad with a lemon sauce. I love easy dishes that are full of flavor and perfect for everyday to gourmet.

Many of my favorite ingredients are included in this healthy veal dish.  This recipe and opinions from this post are solely mine. 

I am a proud Italian and grew up in my Nana’s kitchen. We loved cooking our weeknight meals but more importantly our Family Sunday dinners.. She and I would talk about what we should make 3 days before. I cherish all of the memories with her and still love to share them with my readers on www.CindysTable.com. One of our family favorites is veal and that made writing this post extremely exciting to me.

My husband and I love cooking veal dishes and some of the ones you can find on my blog are herb crusted veal chopsveal scaloppini with sage leavesbraised veal shanks with fresh herbs, Veal chop Milaneseveal stuffed meatballs to name just a few.

Many of my friends tell me they don’t care for veal so I always ask if I could prepare a veal dish for them. Each and every time I have they’ve been delighted!  

There are many different cuts of veal and, depending on the recipe, it’s important to buy the appropriate cut. I always call the butcher to make sure the right cut is available.

I love sharing good cooking tips with my readers. Here are the different cuts of veal and how best to use them. 

  • Breasts: The veal breasts are great for slow cooking. I love to prepare the breast in my slow cooker with vegetables and lots of herbs.
  • Chuck: The chuck cut is also great for slow cooking and especially for a stew.
  • Leg: The leg is a perfect cut for roasting. This is considered a premium cut.
  • Loan: Another great choice for braising or stews. Low and slow cooking!
  • Rib Chop: This cut of veal reminds me of a tender steak. You can find these either bone-in or boneless.
  • Rib roast: Great for roasting, perfect for a family gathering.
  • Scaloppini: One of my favorite cuts to prepare cutlet style dishes. They can come thin or as a thicker cut where I would use a mallet to pound nice and thin. These also pan sear up very quickly.
  • Shank: Osso Bucco is one of my favorite braised dishes. I start this dish on my stove top with vegetables, sauce, wine and bay leaves then place in the oven on a low heat for 6-8 hours.

When cooking with a rib roast or rib chops be sure to cook until the internal temperature is 140 degrees F.

PS

I always use at least 2 pounds of meat when making meatballs for left overs!
