Why we love it

Roasted veal is a dish that comes together quickly. Since veal is so young, the meat that naturally remains tender juicy. As long as you don’t over cook it, that is.

Cooked delicately with a handful of vegetables, roasted veal can be served as a main dish for a special occasion or as an elegant weeknight dinner. With the juices running between the veal and the veggies, this is is a one-pan dish that everyone is going to want more of.

Let the roasted veal rest for a few minutes after removing it from the oven to allow the meat to redistribute its juices and keep it tender. You can then Carve the roasted veal into thin slices and arrange it on a platter, garnished with rosemary and ready to serve.

What to serve with it?

This delicious French-style roasted veal can be served with a side dish like this cheesy cauliflower gratin or mushroom and potato gratin.

For starters, consider this tomato tartare or these perigord salad.


What drinks to serve with it?
