For the veal breast:
- 1 veal breast (with pocket cut into the meat for stuffing)
- 2 eggs (hard boiled)
- 300 g veal bone
- 2 tbsp clarified butter
- beef broth or water (for spooning over)
- 1 tbsp flour (for thickening the juice)
For the stuffing:
- 2 tbsp clarified butter
- 100 g ham (diced)
- 160 g bread cubes (or four bread rolls cut into cubes)
- 2 eggs
- 1 egg yolk
- 125 ml double cream
- lemon peel (grated, untreated)
- 1 tbsp parmesan
- 1 bunch parsley (chopped)
Directions for Stuffed Veal Breast
- Wash veal breast in luke-warm water, pat dry with kitchen paper and rub inside and outside with salt. Boil the eggs.
- For the filling, melt clarified butter, dice ham and briefly sautée. Mix with bread cubes and the eggs, egg yolk, cream, grated lemon peel, parmesan and chopped parsley to make a stuffing. Season with salt and pepper and leave to stand for a few minutes.
- Stuff the veal breast with half of the stuffing mixture.
- Peel the hard-boiled eggs, place in the veal breast and fill again using the remaining stuffing. Close the opening. Evenly distribute the veal bones in a frying pan. Place the veal breast with the “good” side facing downwards on this and pour over the heated clarified butter.
- Roast in a pre-heated oven at 200 °C/ 400 °F for about 45 minutes whilst continuously pouring over the juices. Turn and then cook again for at least a further 1 hour and again pour over the juices during cooking. If necessary, add soup or water.
- Take the veal breast out of the roasting tin and leave to stand. Continue to roast the bones, thicken with flour and pour over a little beef broth or water. Simmer the sauce until you have the desired consistency and strain. Slice the Stuffed Veal Breast and serve the sauce separately.
Don’t use too much stuffing in the veal breast otherwise it will burst and the delicious filling will fall out.
