Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 pounds boneless veal stew meat, cut into approximately 2-inch pieces
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 2 (14 1/2 ounce) cans low-salt chicken broth

  • 3 medium carrots, cut diagonally into 1-inch pieces
  • 3/4 cup whipping cream
  • 1 (10 ounce) package frozen petite peas, thawed, drained
  • Steamed rice

Instructions

  1. Season veal with salt and pepper.
  2. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in heavy large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add veal to Dutch oven in batches and cook until brown, turning occasionally, about 5 minutes per batch. Transfer veal to plate.
