Veal Stew (Or Beef, or Pork) With Olives and Ouzo

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 33 mins

If you don't want to use veal, use a cut of sirloin, or a nice bit of pork. This cooks up quite fast and makes a delicious sauce.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown meat in butter; add onion, season and pour ouzo over.
  2. Add basil, capers, tomato juice and paprika to taste.
  3. Season to taste.
  4. Add a little water, about 1 cup, and simmer, covered 25 minutes (you may need to add a bit more water near the end).
  5. Add olives and simmer 5-6 minutes longer.
  6. Remove onion, puree, and re-add to sauce.

Very easy to prepare dish with a delicious sauce. I made it with pork loin and my husband just loved it. I found, though, that I had to add a bit more water towards the end of the cooking time as even on a low simmer, it boils out.
