Veal Roast with Pureed Vegetable Sauce

If you are looking for a dinner roast recipe, this one is for you: juicy homemade veal roast with pureed sauce prepared from carrots, onions and tomatoes stewed in dry red wine and meat juices.

Pureeing vegetables makes sauce more homogeneous (and looking and tasting more like a sauce), however you can also pour cooked meat with cooked vegetable mix without pureeing it, that may save you some time if needed.

Meat roasted this way tastes great served straight from the oven as well as cooled down.

Ingredients:


How to prepare, step-by-step:

  1. Prepare ingredients: if you choose to substitute tomato paste for tomatoes, dilute it with cup of water and add them later in the process:

  3. While onions are cooking, rinse meat and pat it dry with paper towel and tie it with cooking twine (mine was already sold tied up); warm up other pan with 2-3 table spoons of oil over moderate high heat and fry whole piece from each side until colored (you can actually do this step in the pan you will be cooking meat in that will reduce amount of dirty pans):

  6. While onions and carrots are cooking, blanch tomatoes to remove their skin; then chop them and add to the frying pan and stew all vegetables together for 10 mins or so (if you use tomato paste – skip this step and add tomato paste closer to the end):

  10. Season with salt to taste, cover pot with a lid, turn heat under it on moderate, bring to slow boiling, adjust heat if needed for slow boiling and stew meat with vegetables for 2.5 hours (if piece of meat is bigger than 3.5lb, you may need to increase cooking time), whole cooking pour produced juices over whole meat piece from time to time with a spoon:

  13. Remove meat from the pot, portion by portion strain sauce from vegetables into sauce pan, remove bay leaves and as much pepper corns as you can see, put vegetables to the sauce pan and chop them together with sauce using hand blander (you can also puree them using colander, but that takes much more time), add more salt if you feel like it:
