6 Veal Recipes That Everyone Loves

Game night or a romantic dinner for two, veal is the perfect option to prepare a homemade, specialty cuisine. The soft, tender burst of meaty merriment in your mouth might fill up your belly but it definitely leaves your taste buds craving for more.

So if you’re looking for some veal recipes, below are our top 6 picks that everyone loves:


  • Veal Shanks Paprika


Simply sauté onions, tomatoes and frying pepper in a pan until golden and then toss in the veal shanks. Once the meat starts browning, pour in the dry white wine, or stock along with generous amounts of paprika. Season with your favourite spices and stir well. Then transfer in a baking dish and place in the oven for 40 minutes until the gravy dries out slightly. Pull out and serve.


  • Veal Cutlets Gravy


The steps to preparing this winning meal are quite simple. You need to season the veal with salt and pepper and cover in flour. Then fry it in a deep skillet in oil and butter for a creamy taste. Once the cutlets are ready, pull them out and pour in wine and stock in the skillet with leftover oil. Squeeze in a lemon and add your seasonings along with parsley. Place the cutlets back in when the sauce thickens and serve.


  • Crispy Veal Strips


Slice the veal in long, equal strips and marinate it in a mixture of different seasonings such as garlic powder, red chilli powder, a tinge of cumin, Italian seasonings, onion powder and, salt and pepper. Cover in flour, then in a whisked egg and coat again in flour. Place in a pan and fry. Serve with your favourite sauce.


  • Veal Pasta


All you need to do is to have lean veal meat. Cut it up in small pieces and fry in olive oil. You can add minced garlic for aroma and improved flavour. Pour in tomato purée and season with salt, pepper, and your favourite spices. Toss in boiled penne pasta and serve.


  • Slow Cooked Veal


Marinate veal with salt and black pepper. In a crock pot, toss in the veal and cook until its brown and beautiful. Now is the time to add your veggies so be generous with your options, add onions, garlic, carrots, tomatoes, potatoes, green onions, corn and peas. Pour in the stock and cover the lid to slow cook for at least 2 hours. Serve with rice.



In a bowl, combine parsley, lemon, polenta and breadcrumbs and set aside. In another bowl, add flour, and set aside. In a third bowl, whisk an egg and set aside. Take the veal schnitzel and place it in flour. Cover it well then dip in the egg and then toss it in the breadcrumb mixture. Refrigerate for 20 minutes. Heat the oil and sauté garlic and onion before adding tomato paste and tomato cubes. Let it simmer and season with your favourite herbs and spices. Pour the mixture in a baking dish and place in the fried veal. Place in an oven pre-heated at 200 degree Celsius and bake for 20 minutes. Sauté veggies in a pan, pull out the veal and serve a hefty potion with veggies as a side.
