Veal Stew Recipe Slow Cooker – I’m cooking a veal Marengo recipe. Loin veal chops are in the crock pot for a 6 hour slow cook.
I can hear the chef mumbling as I write. “You don’t prepare Marengo with loin chops! Or with veal for that matter.”
Today, in my kitchen, I improvised much like chef Dunant did that day.
I will admit to the recipe being “Marengo style” but I’m positive Napeleon would not object to my tampering with the original. He may have pronounced my version just as “formidable!”.
To make things even more interesting, the only ingredient I purchased was the veal. You can, of course, replace the veal with chicken. Every other ingredient came off the pantry shelf.
Not only is this an easy recipe, it is extremely versatile.
During my shopping expedition earlier this afternoon, I came across discounted veal loin chops.
Veal is an expensive cut of meat and veal loin chops rank right up there as one of the most expensive cuts – $13.49 a pound. The discount? 30%.
I bought 3 packs which gave me six large veal loin chops. The recipe? None.
I opened the pantry and grabbed ingredients I have used in other veal recipes – chopped and seasoned tomatoes, tomato paste, white wine.
You can easily add mushrooms to this dish but this is one rare case where I did not even have canned mushrooms. The original recipe supposedly included shrimp and eggs.
Onions, garlic, olive oil, parsley and a generous helping of Italian seasonings including basil and oregano. Preparing the tomato sauce was the most time consuming part of the entire recipe.
Instead of adding the flour to the liquid, I coated the veal loin chops and simply placed them in the crock pot. Then I poured the onion, garlic and tomato mixture on the chops.
Vite! A Table. I am officially hungry – The whole house is filled with the aroma of Veal Marengo!
