Barolo-Braised Veal

  • ACTIVE: 15 MIN
  • TOTAL TIME: 11 HRS 15 MIN
  • SERVINGS: 8

The veal marinates overnight in Barolo, so plan accordingly. If you can't find an affordable Barolo, try a Nebbiolo d'Alba; it's made from the same grape.

  1. 1 1/2 bottles Barolo (4 1/2 cups)
  2. 3 celery ribs, coarsely chopped
  3. 3 bay leaves
  4. 2 medium onions, coarsely chopped
  5. 2 carrots, coarsely chopped
  6. 2 whole cloves
  7. One 4-pound boneless veal shoulder roast, tied
  8. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  9. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  10. 1 cup veal or beef stock or low-sodium broth
  1. In a bowl, combine the wine, celery, bay leaves, onions, carrots and cloves. Add the veal and marinate overnight in the refrigerator, turning a few times.
  2. The next day, remove the veal from the marinade and pat dry; reserve the marinade. Season the veal with salt and pepper. Heat the olive oil in a large enameled cast-iron casserole. Add the veal and cook over moderately high heat until browned, about 4 minutes per side. Add the reserved marinade and the veal stock and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer the veal, skimming as necessary and turning the meat halfway through, until it’s tender and an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center registers 140°, about 2 1/2 hours.
  3. Transfer the veal to a carving board and cover loosely with foil. Strain the cooking liquid into a medium saucepan and boil until reduced to 2 cups, about 8 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Discard the strings from the roast and carve it into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Serve with the braising liquid.
Serve With Cooked carrots and creamy polenta.
