Foodie Fridays - One Pot Dish of Veal & Mushroom Stew

I am sharing another one pot dish that DinoPapa cooked; Veal & Mushroom Stew, this recipe is taken from the same cookbook as the Spicy Chicken and Chilli Soup which I shared last week.

* 750g stewing veal, sliced about 5mm thick
* 3/4 teaspoon salt
* 1/4 cup plain flour
* 1/3 cup of olive oil
* 8 small onions (optional)
* 400g mushrooms, quartered
* 1/3 cup dry sherry
* 1 1/2 cups chicken stock
* 2 1/2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh tarragon or 1/4 teaspoon dried tarragon
* 250g broad egg noodles
* 300g frozen green peas. thawed and drained
* 1/2 cup cream
* 2 tablespoon lemon juice

1. Sprinkle the veal with 1/4 teaspoon of salt, dredge it in the flour and shake off any excess.
2. Heat 3 tablespoons of the oil in a large flameproof casserole over moderately high heat for 1 minute.
3. Brown the veal in batches - about 5 minutes per batch.  Transfer the meat to a bowl and set aside.
4. Preheat the oven to 180°C.  Add the onions (if desired) and mushrooms to the casserole (add more oil if needed).
5. Reduce the heat to low and saute, shaking the pan occasionally until the onions and mushrooms are slightly softened - about 5 minutes.
6. Add the sherry and cook for 2 minutes, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of pan.
7. Pour in the chicken stock, then add the tarragon and veal.  Bring to a boil over high heat, cover, transfer to the oven and bake until the veal is tender - about 30 mins.
8. Cook the noodles according to packet instructions.
9. Transfer the casserole to the top of the stove and stir in the peas, cream, lemon juice and remaining salt.
10. Cook, uncovered over moderate heat until the peas are heated through and the sauce slightly thickened - about 5 mins.
11. Serve over the noodles.

Again, DinoPapa modified the recipe, the dish still taste great even without the dry sherry, peas and onion.  He did not put noodles in it too since we are having this with rice.  

The kids love it too, the veal is chewy but not too tough and the sauce adds flavour to the plain white rice which probably is the reason they finishes off their meal faster the usual that night.

Note : In case you are wondering (like me) according to wiki veal is the meat of young cattle (calves).
