Nutritional values

The Austrians use beef in the original, but with veal\'s it becomes much lighter and less fat. The lean meat also provides plenty of high-quality protein and iron.

If you don't mind a few extra calories, put 1 teaspoon of pumpkin seed oil per serving on the dish: This way the body can better utilize the provitamin A from the carrots.

Kitchen utensils

1 Skillet, 1 Aluminum foil, 1 large Pot, 1 Small bowl, 1 Measuring cups, 1 Cutting board, 1 Large knife, 1 Tablespoon, 1 Teaspoon, 1 Peeler, 1 Fine grater, 1 Fine-mesh sieve, 1 Bowl, 1 Small knife, 1 Wooden spoon, 1 Small pot with lid

Preparation steps

Boiled Veal preparation step 1

Clean the soup greens (carrot, leek, parsnip) and coarsely chop.  Cut the onions in half. Line a pan with a piece of aluminum foil, then add onion halves, cut side down, and char until lightly browned. Squeeze juice from lemon. 

Boiled Veal preparation step 2

In a large pot, combine 3 liters of water with the soup greens, charred onions, the bay leaves and 2 teaspoons salt. Bring to a boil. Rinse the veal, pat dry and add to pot. Cook over low heat until veal is cooked through, about 1 1/2 hours.

Boiled Veal preparation step 3

Peal and core the apples and cut into large pieces. In a small saucepan, simmer apples with 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 1 tablespoon water and a pinch of salt, stirring occasionally. Cover and cook until the apple pieces are very soft, stirring often. Remove from heat and let compote cool completely.

Boiled Veal preparation step 4

While the apples cook, wash and peel the carrots and potatoes and cut into 1/2-inch pieces. Place in a bowl with cold salted water to cover. Wash the leek, drain well and cut into 1/2-inch rings.

Boiled Veal preparation step 5

Remove the veal from the pan and keep warm.

Boiled Veal preparation step 6

Strain the broth through a fine sieve, return to pot and bring to a boil. Add potatoes and carrots and cook for 4 minutes. Add leek and cook for an additional 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Boiled Veal preparation step 7

Wash, peel and finely grate the horseradish. Add to apple compote. Season with salt and pepper.

Boiled Veal preparation step 8

Rinse the chives, shake dry and cut into slices diagonally. Slice boiled veal and divide among soup bowls. Pour broth and vegetables over veal, sprinkle with chives and serve with apple-horseradish compote.
