Roast Veal Recipe


For people who love roasting, the choice is always to go with roast veal for a wonderful roasting and dining experience. Take any other piece of meat and it will pale in comparison. So just what makes this particular cut of meat a popular favourite?

Simple Yet Tasty

Veal is a meat that comes from young cattle, making this kind of meat both tasty and tender. By itself roast veal is already a delicious dish. Rub some salt and pepper on your veal and maybe a couple of cloves of garlic and you’ll end up with a pretty tasty veal roast. Add some more pizzazz and flair and you’ll end up with one big reason why your in-laws will want to stay.

Quick and Easy

And since veal isn’t as tough as meat that comes from older animals or heavier animals, cooking time is pretty short. It’s one of the reasons why veal roast is very popular. You have to be careful not to overcook the meat as your veal will end up dry and chewy. Just be particularly conscious about the amount of time it takes to roast your veal and you will be all set.

Roast veal nut with whole garlic cloves

If you want a veal recipe that is pretty easy to make, this is definitely it. You should be careful when cooking this cut though, since it comes from the leg, which makes it pretty lean and delicate in flavour.

Another thing that you have to remember is to make sure that you let the veal roast rest before serving it. Letting the veal roast rest will give the juices inside ample time to redistribute. Letting the roast veal rest also gives the meat the time to relax. As a result, you will be serving tastier and meat that is tender.
