Preparation: 20 minutes
Cooking: 2 hours
Total: 2 hours 20 minutes



  • 1 ½ pounds of veal stew meat, cubed
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 carrots, peeled and sliced

  • 4 cups of chicken or veal broth
  • ½ cup of flour

  1. In a large pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the veal cubes and cook until browned on all sides.
