This got a two thumbs up from the family and will be made again very soon! Our butcher frequently has veal breast for $3.99 a pound and so I pick one up a few times a month to cut up and use in spaghetti sauce or stews. The only changes made were to omit the leeks (I forgot them when I went grocery shopping) and to add a few more cloves of garlic. I also just simmered it on the stove for about 2 hours. (4)

Delicious! I used half veal and half beef and more of the regular mushrooms and only a small amount of the shiitake mushrooms. I also used large mushrooms which I sliced instead of the button mushrooms. I also used a little less cream than called for (just used what was left in the cream carton - did not measure). I did not know how much thyme to use, so just shook some from the jar.Very successful meal! Thanks for sharing!

Tender delish! I did season the veal generously with pepper before flouring. I used only 1 pound meat leaving the rest of the menu as called for. Added 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce. I also added the mushrooms the after after adding the onions. Served over leftover penne. This would be yummy over mashed potatoes. Merci Made for ZWT #8
