Chicken Fried Steak with Gravy

Chicken Fried Steak:
1 1/2 cups whole milk
2 large eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons seasoned salt
Freshly ground black pepper
3/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3 pounds cube steak (tenderized round steak that's been extra tenderized)
Kosher salt
1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil
1 tablespoon butter
Gravy:
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
3 to 4 cups whole milk
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Mashed potatoes, for serving

For the steak: Begin with setting up an assembly line of dishes. Mix the milk with the eggs in one; the flour mixed with the seasoned salt, 1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper, paprika and cayenne in another; and the meat in a third. Then have one clean plate at the end to receive the breaded meat.
Work with one piece of meat at a time. Sprinkle both sides with kosher salt and black pepper, then place it in the flour mixture. Turn to coat. Place the meat into the milk/egg mixture, turning to coat. Finally, place it back in the flour and turn to coat (dry mixture/wet mixture/dry mixture). Place the breaded meat on the clean plate, then repeat with the remaining meat.
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the butter. Drop in a few sprinkles of flour to make sure it's sufficiently hot. When the butter sizzles immediately, you know it's ready. (It should not brown right away, if it does, the fire is too hot.) Cook the meat, 3 pieces at a time, until the edges start to look golden brown, about 2 minutes each side. Remove the meat to a paper towel-lined plate and keep them warm by covering lightly with another plate or a sheet of foil. Repeat until all the meat is cooked.
After all the meat is fried, pour off the grease into a heatproof bowl. Without cleaning the skillet, return it to the stove over medium-low heat. Add 1/4 cup of the grease back to the skillet and allow it to heat up.
For the gravy: When the grease is hot, sprinkle the flour evenly over the grease. Using a whisk, mix the flour with the grease, creating a golden-brown paste. Add more flour if it looks overly greasy; add a little more grease if it becomes too pasty/clumpy. Keep cooking until the roux reaches a deep golden brown color.
Pour in the milk, whisking constantly. Add the seasoned salt and black pepper to taste and cook, whisking, until the gravy is smooth and thick, 5 to 10 minutes. Be prepared to add more milk if it becomes overly thick. Be sure to taste to make sure gravy is sufficiently seasoned.
Serve the meat next to a big side of mashed potatoes. Pour gravy over the whole shebang!

3 medium uncooked carrot(s)
2 small uncooked onion(s)
1 rib(s) (medium) uncooked celery, coarsely chopped
1 pound(s) uncooked ground turkey breast
1 large egg(s)
1/4 tsp table salt

Place the chopped carrot, chopped onion, and celery in a food processor; pulse until finely chopped. Transfer to the bowl with the bread mixture. Add the turkey, egg, and salt; mix with hands until combined. Shape the mixture into an oval loaf and place in a slow cooker.

1 tablespoon grill seasoning
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 large egg
1/2 (8-ounce) package sliced baby portobello mushrooms
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Pot Roast with Vegetables

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 boneless chuck roast, 3 1/2 to 4 pounds, rolled and tied
1 onion, chopped fine
4 garlic cloves, chopped fine
3/4 cup canned crushed tomatoes
1/4 cup red-wine vinegar
1 tablespoon firmly packed brown sugar
1 bay leaf
2 1/2 cups water
3/4 pound carrots, cut diagonally into 1-inch thick slices
1 pound small red potatoes, peeled and kept in a bowl of cold water
1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch dissolved in 1/2 tablespoons cold water
Minced fresh parsley leaves, for garnish

In a large heavy flameproof casserole, heat the oil over moderate high heat until it is hot but not smoking and in it brown the beef, patted dry, and seasoned with salt and pepper, on all sides. Transfer the beef to a plate, add the onions and the garlic to the casserole, and cook the mixture over moderate heat, stirring, until the onions are golden.
Stir in the tomatoes, vinegar, brown sugar, bay leaf, and water, bringing the mixture to a boil, and add the beef. Braise the beef, covered, in a preheated 350° F oven for 1 hour, add the carrots and braise the mixture, covered, for 30 minutes. Add the potatoes, drained, and braise the mixture, covered, for 30 minutes, or until the beef and the vegetables are tender.
Pot roast may be prepared up to this point 2 days in advance, cooled, uncovered, and chilled, covered. Discard any solidified fat before reheating the pot roast.
Transfer the beef with slotted spoons to a cutting board and let it stand for 10 minutes. Skim the fat from the top of the cooking mixture and bring the mixture to a boil. Stir the cornstarch mixture and add enough of it to the boiling cooking mixture, stirring, to thicken the gravy to the desired consistency. Simmer the gravy mixture, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes, season it with salt and pepper, and discard the bay leaf.
Slice the beef and spoon some of the gravy over it. Serve gravy on the side, as well. Garnish the beef with the parsley. Recipe Courtesy Gourmet Magazine

Garlic-Studded Pot Roast

1 (4 to 5-pound) sirloin tip roast, netted or tied at 1-inch intervals
10 cloves garlic, peeled and halved lengthwise, plus 4 to 6 garlic cloves, peeled
1 tablespoon Essence, plus 1 1/2 teaspoons
1 1/4 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1 cup dry red wine
3 tablespoons tomato paste
4 large carrots, scrubbed
2 stalks celery, trimmed and cut in half crosswise
2 medium yellow onions, peeled and quartered
1 pound small new potatoes
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup beef stock, or canned low-sodium beef broth
2 bay leaves

With a small, sharp knife, make 30 (1 1/2-inch deep) slits around the outside of the roast. Insert the half cloves of garlic into the slits. Rub the roast with 1 tablespoon of the Essence, 1 teaspoon of the black pepper, and 1 teaspoon of the salt.
Preheat the oven to 400° F.
Heat the oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add the roast and sear on all sides, about 4 minutes per side. Remove from the pan. Deglaze the pan with the red wine, scraping up any brown bits on the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the tomato paste and 1 cup of water. Add the tomato paste mixture to the red wine and cook for 2 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a large roasting pan or Dutch oven, alternate the carrots and celery flat on the bottom of the pot. Place the bay leaves on the vegetables. Scatter the onions, potatoes, and garlic over the bottom. (The vegetables will form a "nest" on which the roast will be placed.) Place the roast on top of the vegetables. Add the red wine mixture and the stock. Cover the roasting pan tightly with aluminum foil and bake for 1 1/2 hours.
Uncover the pot roast, baste with the pan juices, and lower the heat to 350° F. Cover the roast and continue cooking until the meat is completely tender and begins to fall apart, 2 to 2 1/2 hours, uncovering and basting each hour. Remove from the oven, uncover, and baste. Let rest for 15 minutes before carving. Serve each portion of the carved roast with onion quarters, new potatoes, 1 carrot, and 1 piece of celery. Spoon the pan juices over the meat and vegetables, and serve.

Essence (Emeril's Creole Seasoning):
2 1/2 tablespoons paprika
2 tablespoons salt
2 tablespoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon dried leaf oregano
1 tablespoon dried thyme

Combine all ingredients thoroughly and store in an airtight jar or container. Yield: about 2/3 cup

1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
2/3 cup catsup
1/2 cup tomato sauce, plus tomato sauce for serving, optional

Heat the oil in a nonstick frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion and carrot. Sauté until the carrot begins to soften and the onion is almost translucent, 4-5 minutes. Add the garlic. Sauté 1 minute. Remove from the heat and cool.
Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly oil a 9x5x3-inch loaf pan. Whisk eggs, salt, pepper, thyme, parsley, Worcestershire sauce and catsup in medium bowl to blend. Combine the beef, bread crumbs and cooled vegetable mixture in a large bowl. Add the egg mixture. Using your hands, mix just until blended. Do not overmix or the loaf will be too compact and dry.
Gently pat the meat mixture into the prepared pan. Pour the tomato sauce evenly over the top. Bake until meat begins to shrink from the pan sides and instant meat thermometer inserted into center of loaf registers 150°F, about 1 1/4 hours. Transfer pan to a rack. Cool 10 minutes.
Cut the meat loaf into thick slices. Using a spatula, transfer slices to warmed plates. Serve warm or cold, accompanied with more tomato sauce, if desired.

CORNED BEEF AND CABBAGE

5# corned beef brisket
1 large onion, quartered
4 carrots, sliced lengthwise
4 potatoes, quartered
1 tbl. pickling spice
1 head cabbage, quartered

In a 5qt. crock pot place carrots and potatoes. Put corned beef on top of veggies, sprinkle with pickling spice and cover with onions.
Cover meat with hot water and set on high for 6-8 hours.
Take meat and veggies out and keep warm. Place cabbage in crock pot and cook another half hour or so. You might want to take the water
from the crock pot and place in pot on the stove to cook the cabbage. It won't take as long.
The secret to a tender corned beef in the crock pot is the high temp. If you cook it on low, it will be tough. From Kathy's Kookbook - ref:03/08/98

Guilt-Free Ham Casserole

1 c. leftover lean ham, chopped
1- 8 oz. Pkg. Wide No-Yolk Egg Noodles
1/4 c. onion, chopped
1 Stalk Celery, Chopped
1/4 Small Green Pepper, Chopped

I chopped the ham and vegetables in my food processor (depends on how finely you like it chopped).

Pour meat & vegetable mixture into a well greased (cooking spray) casserole dish.
Dot the top with butter, then top with bread or cracker crumbs. Cover and bake for about 40 minutes.

Ham Steaks with Whiskey Sauce

4 (about 6 oz.) Ham Steaks
3 Tbs. unsalted Butter, divided
2 Tbs. Onion, finely chopped
2 Tbs. All-purpose Flour
3/4 cup Water or Ham Stock
1 Tbs. Brown Sugar, firmly packed
1 Jigger Whiskey (About 2 oz.)
Salt and White Pepper to taste

Trim any excess fat from the ham steaks to prevent curling while cooking.
Melt about two tablespoons of the butter and brush the ham steaks on both sides.
Grill or broil the steaks for about 8 minutes on each side.
To prepare the Whiskey sauce, gently saute onions in remainder of butter in a saucepan over medium heat until cooked.
Remove the saucepan from the heat and gradually whisk in the flour. Add the water or stock slowly,
whisking as you go. Return the saucepan to the heat. Add the brown sugar and bring the sauce to a boil.
Reduce heat and gently simmer for about 2 minutes. Add whiskey, and season to taste.
If sauce seems too thick, add a little more water. Place ham steaks on a warmed plate or platter and
evenly distribute the sauce on each portion. Fantastic when served with peas and carrots as a side dish.Marla

Pancetta Wrapped Pork Roast

8 large garlic cloves
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh rosemary leaves
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh thyme leaves
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 (3 1/2 to 4-pound) tied boneless pork loin roast
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 ounces thinly sliced pancetta
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
1 1/2 cups dry white wine

Blend the garlic, rosemary, thyme, and oil in a small food processor, scraping down the sides of the bowl occasionally, until the garlic is minced. Sprinkle the pork roast generously with salt and pepper. Arrange the pancetta slices on a work surface, overlapping slightly and forming a rectangle. Spread half of the garlic mixture over 1 side of the pork and between the 2 loins that meet in the center of the tied pork roast. Place the pork, garlic mixture side down, in the center of the pancetta rectangle. Spread the remaining garlic mixture over the remaining pork. Wrap the pancetta slices around the pork. Place the pork in a roasting pan. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour and up to 1 day.
Preheat the oven to 400° F.
Pour 1/2 cup of broth and 1/2 cup of wine into the roasting pan. Add more broth and wine to the pan juices every 20 minutes. Roast the pork until a meat thermometer inserted into the center registers 145°F for medium-rare, about 1 hour. Transfer the pork to a cutting board. Tent with aluminum foil and let stand for 10 minutes. Pour the pan drippings into a glass measuring cup and spoon off any fat that rises to the top.
Using a large sharp carving knife, cut the pork into 1/4-inch-thick slices and serve with the pan juices.

Citrus Pork Chops/Fresh Ginger Peaches

Pork:
4 boneless center cut pork chops, about 1 pound

Marinade:
2/3 cup teriyaki marinade & sauce
1/2 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Peaches:
2 medium to large fresh peaches
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

Preheat oven to 375°F. Rinse off pork chops with cold running water and pat dry with a paper towel. Place in a gallon sealable plastic bag. Whisk together all marinade ingredients in a measuring cup. Pour marinade into bag over chops and seal. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours, occasionally turning to cover. Drain off marinade and place chops in a baking pan with a rack.
Cut peaches in half and remove pit. Stir together sugar and ginger and lightly sprinkle over peach halves. Place cut side up on baking pan rack along side of pork chops. Cover tightly with foil and bake for about 40 minutes until chops are well done or register 160-degrees on a food thermometer. Let stand for a couple of minutes. Serve pork chop with a peach half. Yield: 4 servings.
Recipe Lady Tips:

Choose pork chops 1/2 to 3/4 –inch thick. Baking time will vary.
A baking pan with a rack prevents chops from soaking up excess cooking juices.
By covering the pan with foil, the pork chops are steamed and baked.
Choose firm medium to large size fresh peaches.
Canned Cling peaches can be substituted. Canned Freestones are too tender.
Test with a meat thermometer to insure doneness.

Spiced Lamb Chops on Peppers/Onions w/Garlic and Mint Couscous

8 rib lamb chops
Coarse salt and coarse black pepper
1 teaspoon ground cumin, 1/3 palm full
1 teaspoon ground coriander, 1/3 palm full
1 teaspoon sweet paprika, 1/3 palm full
4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil,
3 green bell peppers, seeded and cut into 1 inch pieces
1 large yellow onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 cup grape tomatoes
1/2 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves, chopped
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 1/2 cups chicken stock
1 1/2 cups couscous
Handful golden raisins
5 or 6 sprigs fresh mint, finely chopped, about 3 tablespoons
3 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted

Cover the chops with wax paper or plastic and whack each chop with the heel of your palm to flatten it out. Season chops with salt and pepper on both sides. Combine cumin, coriander and paprika and sprinkle the mixture evenly over chops. Pat the spices in place and wash up. Let chops stand 15 minutes.
Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil, 2 turns of the pan. Add peppers and onions. Season the vegetables with salt and pepper and cook together 5 minutes, then add grape tomatoes and continue to cook until skins begin to burst on tomatoes. Add half the flat leaf parsley to the skillet and toss. Transfer vegetables to a platter and cover with loose foil to hold heat.
Place a tablespoon of oil in a small saucepan for couscous, just eyeball the amount. Heat oil over medium heat and add garlic. Sautee garlic 1 minute then add chicken stock and bring it up to a boil. Add couscous and cover the pot. Let stand for 5 minutes. Over medium-low heat toast the pinenuts in a small pan until they begin to give off their aroma, stirring them frequently to prevent them from burning.
Return skillet to stove and add another tablespoon EVOO, a turn of the pan. Add lamb chops to skillet and sear 2 to 3 minutes on each side for medium rare, cook 4 minutes on each side for medium-well chops. Place chops on top of the peppers and onions.
Fluff couscous with a fork and stir in the raisins, mint, remaining parsley and the pine nuts. Pass couscous at table. It makes a nice bed for the veggies and lamb to catch all the juices.

Easy Moussaka

Meat:
Use left over lamb or beef or ground beef.
The dish was created to use leftover, lean roasted lamb, so ground up leftovers are great.
Slow simmer the meat in seasoned juices.

Take either browned fresh ground meat or ground leftover meat put in a large pot with 1 can tomato paste, ½ cup red wine, 1 cup water, salt, pepper, a little oregano, and cinnamon (cinnamon is the secret) use at least 1 tsp of cinnamon per lb. of meat. Simmer this in an open pot until the liquid is absorbed.
If it is absorbed in less than an hour, add water so that it truly slow cooks for at least an hour. Cool and Mix with a cup or two of bread crumbs or cracker crumbs, and an egg. This is your first layer.
NOTE, You can also add sauteed onions at the beginning. I always do.

Eggplant:
Peel and discard peelings. Slice in ½ in. slices crosswise.
Cover all slices with salt and let sit under pressure for ½ hour.
I do this by putting all the salted slices between 2 plates and weighing down the top with cookbooks.
This is so important. It is what keeps your eggplant from making a wet mess of your Moussaka.
When time is up, rinse the eggplant and pat dry.
Then either lightly saute slices or spray with pam and brown in oven (easier).

Topping:
Make a white sauce* and cool enough to whisk in 4 or 5 eggs and a cup of parmesan cheese.
You can use any alternative white custard for this, just be sure to put in a dash of nutmeg, salt pepper, and a little parmesan.
Now spray your casserole with Pam, lay in the meat mix, then layer the sliced, browned, eggplant, and then pour on the sauce. Bake at 350°F until custard is set and dish is bubbly.
Usually about an hour. Then let it rest and cool down. Best after 20 minutes of ½ hour.

1/2 pound suet, minced
3 medium onions, minced
1/2 pound dry oats, toasted
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon dried ground herbs

Rinse the stomach thoroughly and soak overnight in cold salted water.
Rinse the liver, heart, and tongue. In a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook these parts over medium heat for 2 hours. Remove and mince. Remove any gristle or skin and discard.
In a large bowl, combine the minced liver, heart, tongue, suet, onions, and toasted oats. Season with salt, pepper, and dried herbs. Moisten with some of the cooking water so the mixture binds. Remove the stomach from the cold salted water and fill 2/3 with the mixture. Sew or tie the stomach closed. Use a turning fork to pierce the stomach several times. This will prevent the haggis from bursting.
In a large pot of boiling water, gently place the filled stomach, being careful not to splash. Cook over high heat for 3 hours. Serve with mashed potatoes, if you serve it at all.

VEAL

My Favorite Veal Chops

4 bone-in veal chops, each about 12-ounces
2 teaspoons plus 2 tablespoons Essence, recipe follows
1 cup bleached all-purpose flour
1 cup fine dried bread crumbs
2 large eggs
1 cup milk
1 bunch arugula, washed, patted dry, and chopped (about
1 1/2 cups)
4 ripe Roma tomatoes (about 1 1/4 pounds), cored and chopped
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup clarified butter, or vegetable oil
1 lemon, cut into 4 wedges

With a thin, sharp knife, cut a slit about 3-inches across and 1-inch deep into the meaty side of 1 of the chops, being careful not to cut all the way through to the bone. Gently pry open the slit and place the chop between 2 large pieces of plastic wrap on a work surface. Using a meat mallet, pound the chop to a 1/4-inch thickness. Season both sides of the chop with 1/2 teaspoon
*Essence. Repeat with the remaining chops. Combine the flour with 1 of the remaining ablespoons of Essence in a shallow bowl. Put the bread crumbs in another shallow bowl and season with the remaining tablespoon of Essence. Combine the eggs and milk in another shallow bowl and whisk to blend.
Dredge the chops in the seasoned flour and shake off excess. Dip in the egg wash, and then coat both sides with the bread crumbs. Toss the arugula, tomatoes, olive oil, lemon juice, salt,
and pepper in a large bowl.
Heat the clarified butter in a large, heavy nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chops, 2 at a time, and cook until cooked through, about 3 minutes per side. Remove and place on 4 serving plates. Mound a portion of the arugula salad on top of each chop, and serve with
a lemon wedge on the side.

*Essence (Emeril's Creole Seasoning):
2 tablespoons salt
2 tablespoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon dried leaf oregano
1 tablespoon dried thyme

Combine all ingredients thoroughly and store in an
airtight jar or container.

Veal Milanese

4 large eggs
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups plain dry bread crumbs
2 teaspoons dried basil
1 teaspoon dried thyme
2 pounds thinly sliced veal scallopine
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 cups vegetable oil
1 lemon, cut into wedges

Preheat oven to 175°F.
In a shallow dish, beat eggs and season with salt and pepper. Pour flour into another shallow dish. Mix together the bread crumbs, basil and thyme in a third shallow dish. Have ready one large plate.

Veal Loin Stuffed with Roasted Bell Peppers, Goat Cheese, and Basil

2 large yellow bell peppers, roasted
1 (3-ounce) package cream cheese with chives, at room temperature
1 (5.3-ounce) package basil and roasted garlic goat cheese,
or 6 ounces soft fresh herb-flavored goat cheese, at room temperature
1 bunch arugula, stems trimmed
16 large fresh basil leaves
1(3-pound) boneless veal loin
House Seasoning, recipe follows
14 oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, drained
8 bacon slices
2 tablespoons butter
Olive oil
Salt and pepper

Char the peppers over a gas flame or in the broiler, turning until blackened on all sides. Place peppers in a paper bag for 10 minutes to loosen the skins. Peel, seed, and stem the peppers. Cut lengthwise into strips. Set aside. Stir the cream cheese and goat cheese in a small bowl until blended. Set aside.
Plunge the arugula and basil into hot water with tongs. Remove immediately, drain, and place into a bowl of ice water to blanch and shock.
Slice the veal open like a book and cover with plastic wrap. With a meat pounder or rolling pin gently pound the veal to approximately a 10 by 12-inch rectangle of even thickness. Season with House Seasoning, as desired.
Overlap the arugula leaves down the center of the veal forming a 2-inch wide strip. Cover with half of the pepper strips, skinned side up. Arrange the sun-dried tomatoes in 2 rows on top of the peppers.
Set aside 1/4 cup of the cheese mixture for the sauce. Spoon the remaining cheese mixture in an even log over the tomatoes. Arrange the remaining pepper strips, skinned side up, over the cheese. Arrange the basil leaves over the peppers.
Fold 1 long side of the veal over the filling. Roll up the veal jelly roll style and secure by tying with string. Wrap the string lengthwise around the veal to secure ends. Cover the ends of the veal with aluminum foil to enclose the filling completely. Cover the veal and the reserved cheese separately and chill for at least 6 hours. Can be prepared 1 day ahead.
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Melt the butter and olive oil in a heavy large shallow roasting pan over medium-high heat. Season the veal with salt and pepper. Brown the veal on all sides, turning frequently, about 10 minutes. Remove the pan from heat. Drape the bacon over the veal and tuck in the ends.
Place the veal in the oven and roast until a thermometer inserted into the center of the meat (not the filling) registers 140°F, about 45 minutes. Transfer to a work surface and let stand for 15 minutes.

House Seasoning:
1 cup salt
1/4 cup black pepper
1/4 cup garlic powder

Mix ingredients together and store in an airtight container for up to 6 months.

Sauce:
2 3/4 cups chicken broth
3 medium shallots, finely chopped
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 tablespoons capers
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, cut into pieces, at room temperature
Reserved cheese mixture
Salt and pepper

Combine the broth and shallots in a heavy medium saucepan. Boil over high heat until the mixture is reduced to 1/2 cup, about 20 minutes
Whisk in the lemon juice, capers, and parsley. Reduce the heat to low; gradually whisk in the butter and reserved cheese mixture. Season the sauce with salt and pepper, to taste.
To serve, remove the tinfoil from the ends of the roast, the bacon and the string. Cut the veal roast crosswise into even slices. Spoon a few tablespoons of sauce onto each plate. Top with 2 veal slices.
