This is for all of the hunters and their wives out there in the Zaar world. Being from Louisiana, everyone I know hunts SOMETHING, so I do love game. Rabbit, gator, squirrel, etc. I am now in Louisville and with a NON-hunter so I haven't tried this one.....YET!! I found it in Gourmet and the picture of it looks sooo good! The list of ingredients and directions may look long, but if you read them you will see it is not difficult at all. NOTE: This can be made with 1 1/2 lbs. boneless veal shoulder, cut into 1" pieces. Use a heavy 6-qt. pot, and when veal is no longer pink on the outside add 4 cups water and simmer until liquid is reduced to about 1 cup and veal is tender - about 1 1/4 hours. Then proceed with recipe.
