veal stew

Veal Stew

  • Author: Fluffy


Every once in a while I’ll like to make veal for my family. The taste of veal is very unique and everyone seems to really like it. It’s not every day that I will break out the veal so when I do everyone makes comments on it being “veal time” again. I’ll usually source the veal from my local butcher to ensure that it’s top quality as I can’t find it in every store. This meal will feed a family of 6-8 people.


  • 2 medium slices salt pork
  • 1 1/2 lb. veal stew meat, cut into 1” cubes
  • 4 cups tomato juice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 to 3 dashes Tabasco
  • Dash of pepper
  • 1 cup diced potatoes
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • Corn Meal Dumplings
