At Edi & The Wolf, chefs Eduard Frauneder and Wolfgang Ban serve goat-cheese-stuffed veal in individual-size portions. Prepared as a whole roast, as in the recipe here, it's a great way to feed a group. To give the braising liquid an even richer flavor, substitute 1 cup of veal demiglace for 1 cup of the beef stock.

  1. 1/2 cup fresh goat cheese, softened (3 ounces)
  2. 1/4 cup chopped celery leaves
  3. 1 tablespoon chopped marjoram
  4. 1 teaspoon chopped rosemary
  5. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  6. One 3-pound butterflied veal shoulder roast
  7. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  8. 2 shallots, thinly sliced
  9. 1 large carrot, thinly sliced
  10. 1 small celery rib, thinly sliced
  11. 1 cup dry red wine
  12. 4 cups beef stock
  13. 1 bay leaf
  14. 1 garlic clove, smashed
  15. 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  16. 2 tablespoons chopped tarragon
  17. 2 tablespoons chopped dill
  18. Spring Vegetables with Pickled Onions, for serving
  1. Preheat the oven to 300°. In a small bowl, mix the goat cheese with the celery leaves, marjoram and rosemary and season with salt and pepper. Lay the veal shoulder on a work surface, boned side up, and season with salt and pepper. Spread the goat cheese mixture over the meat, then roll it up and tie at 1-inch intervals with kitchen string. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. In a large, enameled cast-iron casserole, heat the olive oil. Add the veal roast and cook over moderately high heat, turning, until browned all over, about 10 minutes. Transfer the veal to a plate. Add the shallots, carrot and celery to the pan and cook over low heat until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the wine and simmer until syrupy, about 10 minutes. Return the veal roast to the casserole. Add the beef stock, bay leaf and garlic and bring to a boil.
  3. Cover the casserole and braise the veal in the oven until tender for 2 1/2 to 3 hours, turning once or twice.
  4. Transfer the veal to a carving board and cover loosely with foil. Strain the cooking liquid into a saucepan and spoon off the fat. Boil the liquid until reduced to 2 cups, about 15 minutes. Stir in the parsley, tarragon and dill and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Remove the strings from the roast and slice it 3/4 inch thick. Serve with the jus and the Spring Vegetables with Pickled Onions.
