Sometimes veal is too expensive, so i prefer to but a good chicken instead. This dish is economical. We are still eating the rice with the sauce and adding different veg 3 day\'s later.
3 lbs veal (stew meat cut into 2-inch cube)
1 or 2 carrots
18 white/pearl onions (peeled)
1/2 lb mushrooms
Herbs: 2 sprigs thyme, 3 parsley, 1 rib celery, 1/2 bay leaf
2 egg yolks
1/2 cup whipping cream
1 lemon juice
6 / 7 cups water
Cut the veal into 2-inch cubes. Stick the onion with a clove. Tie together the celery, thyme, bay and parsley.Melt 3 tablespoons of butter with oil in a casserole. Add the veal. Brown on all sides.
Add the carrots, onion, herbs and salt. Add water to cover the meat.
Cook over high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 45 minutes.
Peel the white pearl onions. Clean the mushrooms and cut them into quarters. Melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a pan. Add the mushrooms, salt and pepper. Sauté until lightly browned.
Remove the mushrooms. Add 2 tablespoons of butter in the pan, add the onions and sauté for 1 or 2 minutes. Return the mushrooms to the skillet and keep warm.
Combine the egg yolks with the cream and half of the lemon juice in a bowl.
Remove the meat, the mushrooms and onions and place them in a serving dish.
Pour the cream with the egg-yolk in the meat juice in the casserole. Cook over very low heat for 10 minutes. Do not let the sauce boil. Add the lemon juice, salt and pepper if needed.
Pour the sauce over the meat in the dish.
Serving: Veal stew is usually served with rice.
