1/3 c olive oil

1 large onion, peeled and sliced

3 lbs veal cubes

1 c flour

1 c white wine

1 garlic clove

2-3 cups chicken broth

Salt and pepper

1/4 cup fresh chopped parsley

Zest of 1 lemon


Heat the olive oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the onion and cook a few minutes.

Meanwhile coat the veal cubes in the flour and add to the Dutch oven with the onions. Brown the veal on all sides, about 5-6 minutes.

When the veal has browned add the wine, scraping up the brown bits on the bottom of the pan. When the wine begins to bubble and thicken add 2 cups of the chicken broth and season with salt and pepper.

Cover the Dutch oven and simmer on low for about and hour until the veal is very tender. Stir occasionally and add more chicken stock if needed.

When the veal is tender, stir in the parsley and lemon zest.

Serve over toasted bread or pappardelle pasta.
