Here is the recipe of the stew with potatoes from my childhood, the only meat dish that I ate when I was a kid again. I prepared my grandmother, I was preparing my mom the same way you can do that: a simple dish made of veal into small pieces, potatoes, parsley, a little white wine. And pretty much anything else. The meat is very tender and the flavor is just amazing. Maybe it's because I remember the winter evenings in Messina, everyone sitting around the living room table, to argue with the last bite. Try it and let it try to your children, especially to those who do not eat meat: so eat it.
Ingredients for 4 people:
- a kilo of veal into small pieces
- 6 medium sized potatoes
- a clove of garlic
- a glass of white wine
- a golden onion
- two cups of vegetable broth or veal gravy
- extra virgin olive oil as required
- parsley as required
- salt and pepper
Wash the potatoes and cut them first in half and then into quarters. Saute the potatoes in a pan large enough with olive oil, turning them often: When just browned, remove them and set them aside. In the same pan, with hot oil, Fry the chunks of veal, turning them often and rosolandoli on each side. Take them off and put them aside.
Coarsely chop the onion and a clove of garlic. In the same Pan, lightly Sauté onion and garlic with a little olive oil and vegetable stock. Put the meat in the Pan, raise the heat and deglaze with a glass of white wine. Cook for five minutes. Meanwhile, Add the stock to the meat without covering it entirely. Season with salt. Add plenty of chopped parsley and leave one apart to use them in the future. Cook for 30 minutes over medium heat, covering the Pan half and stirring occasionally.
Arrange the potatoes on meat, always over medium heat. Add salt and cook for 20 minutes with the lid, without stirring. Check the cooking meat and potatoes with a small skewer. After 20 minutes, Add the rest of the parsley, mix and finish cooking. Add the freshly ground pepper.
Serve piping hot stew, with its sauce and abundant homemade bread toasted to make, Obviously, the Slipper. Bon appétit!
