Veal Pot Roast



1 servings



3 tbsp. bacon fat
2 cloves garlic, halved
3 to 4 lbs. rolled veal shoulder
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. thyme or
1/2 tsp. savory
1 bay leaf
6 potatoes
6 onions


Heat bacon fat in cast iron saucepan. Stuff the 2 cloves of garlic into incisions made in the veal. Place the meat in the hot fat and brown well on all sides. Don't rush this as the colour and flavour of the finished gravy will depend on how well the meat has been browned.

Add the thyme or savory and the bay leaf. Place the potatoes and onions (whole) around the meat. Don't add any liquid. Cover tightly and cook over medium heat until meat is tender, about 2 hours. The potatoes and onions will not break as there is no liquid added. The veal will make its own gravy.

When cooked, remove the meat from the pan to a heated platter. Place the pan over high heat and stir gently, so as not to break up the vegetables. When they are well coated with gravy, boil another minute or so until the gravy has a nice consistency.
