Tasty easy dish to make, and love the colour too. We also liked the added bacon for flavour. I served this with noodles and I added a level tsp of sugar as it was just a little tart for my families liking. Will definitely make this again.

This is the precise recipe from the Pennsylvania Dutch chapter of my old cookbook from 1947. Great served with noodles.

Good. I would bread the veal, and from the bacon/veal renderings, make gravy, and serve with mashed potatoes.
