EASY Veal Stew with Wine, Peas and Carrots

Sharing is caring!

Easy Veal Stew with Wine, Peas and Carrots. Today, we decided to cook Mom’s delicious Veal Stew!  Tender, juicy, and full of flavor, her veal stew is made with chunks of lean veal, white wine, onions, carrots, and peas.  The veal always turns out incredibly moist and tender, so you won’t need to use a knife.

 

It’s a very light stew and one that practically melts-in-your-mouth because it’s simmered in wine which enriches the flavors of the carrots and peas together, making this an all-in-one meal so deliciously amazing!

Stews are always so comforting and nourishing.  They make a perfect meal after a long day, and they’re very practical for a weeknight dinner.  

Like most stews, they get better the longer they sit, so we always make enough for two nights so we can enjoy it, even more, the second time.

 

 

 
 

Mom prepares this dish in 40 minutes and even less using only a few ingredients.

 

TIP for SUCCESS!

One thing she does recommend when shopping for the veal is to buy the veal from your local butcher rather than at the supermarket.

You pay a little more, but you’re getting a higher quality of veal which comes from the leg of the animal (which is more tender) rather than the neck or shoulder which is what most supermarket sells.  Because it’s a fattier veal, and you will need to cook it much longer to get it as moist and tender.

Veal stew with peas and carrots is a very satisfying meal. You can also serve it with a side of egg noodles, steamed rice, or just plain crusty bread to dip in the juices.  Don’t forget some chilled white wine!

ENJOY!

      That's funny… I did as well, but then we moved to the South, somehow my pressure cooker never appeared again, so I manage to make my stews without it. Its been fine cooking on stove-top ever since! Thanks again!!
