 Ingredients List

  • 3 lb Boneless veal stew meat
  • 1 md Onion, cut in half
  • 2 Celery stalks; cut in half
  • 1 md Carrot; cut in half
  • 6 c Low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 ts Salt; or as desired
  • 1/2 ts Whole black peppercorns
  • 1/4 ts Ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 Lemon
  • 5 tb Unsalted butter
  • 5 tb All-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 c Cauliflower florets
  • 3/4 c Sour cream


COMBINE THE VEAL AND 4 CUPS broth in a 5-quart heavy pot over high heat on
top of the stove. Cover and bring to a boil. Remove any scum that comes to
the top of the pot, then add the remaining 2 cups broth, the onion, celery,
carrot, salt, pepper, nutmeg and lemon. Reduce heat to low and let simmer
for 1 1/4 hours, or until meat is just tender. Meanwhile, melt the butter
in a medium pot over low heat, and whisk in the flour. Cook, stirring, 2
minutes and remove from heat. Set aside until the meat is cooked. When the
meat is done, remove it from the liquid, using a slotted spoon. Pick off
and discard any vegetables that cling to the veal. Replace the butter-flour
mixture over medium-low heat on the stove and strain the cooking liquid
into it, whisking vigorously. Discard vegetables in the strainer. Cook,
stirring, until mixture thickens, about 3 to 5 minutes. Add cauliflower and
continue to cook an additional 15 minutes. Skim off any residue that rises
to the surface. When it's time to serve dinner, add the veal to the
cauliflower and sauce and heat through. Place sour cream in a mixing bowl,
whisk in 1/2 cup of the hot sauce, then add this to the stew. Do not reheat
the sauce after adding sour cream. Pour the stew into a serving dish and
accompany with rice pilaf or buttered noodles.
