Let me start by saying I didn't use veal because of dietary restrictions, I substituted a nice little pork roast, and sadly I forgot to purchase Vermouth so I used a nice dry white wine. I had a lot of trouble getting the carrots to cook, and the parsnips weren't cooperating very well either. The turnips did great though! I think I might recommend cooking the parsnips and carrots a little longer before adding the turnips. The end product was VERY tasty we enjoyed it greatly.
I was surprised that there were no potatoes in this recipe. I made it as stated and didn't even miss the potatoes.
EXCELLENT!! This was well appreciated at my house.I had a smaller veal roast than the recipe stated (mine was only 1-1/2 lbs) but I kept the sauce amounts the same. I also added a little rutabaga, just because I love them. We will have this dish again! Thanks Baby Kato! This was great!!
