Small Kitchen Stories: Baked Veal Steak "Granny-Style"
Pulling out of the oven fragrant Lemon Squares; I wanted to make further good use of the oven energy. I was way too tired for anything complicated. I wanted a Sunday Dinner thrown back to the 1950's!
That did it! The Veal Steak that was to be simmered was now to be baked.
This is a Two Way Recipe: The second day, boil up Egg Noodles and top with the leftover gravy, meat, and vegetable bits with a swirl-in dollop of ricotta cheese.
Our favorite Giant, Route 1, provides the ingredients.
Baked Veal Steak "Granny-Style"
Veal Steak, "cubed" and pounded with a meat hammer.
Red Sweet Peppers, sliced
Potato: diced small
Mushroom Soup thinned with White Wine: I used the "Organic" Pacific brand.
Second Day: Ricotta Cheese and Egg Noodles.
In a ceramic baking dish smeared with olive oil, lay on the veal steaks. Layer on the vegetables. Pour on the Mushroom Soup which has been thinned with the wine. Sprinkle with the herbs. Bake at 350 degrees for ~ 50 minutes.
Dessert: Lemon Squares!
