Healthy Spicy Veal Roast Recipe

Healthy Spicy Veal Roast Recipe

Both Veal and Spicy things can be a decisive dinner option in most households. However, if your household has no problem with either, then this should be a shoo-in for a Sunday night dinner. For a better browning of the meat, it's encouraged that you leave the roast out for 30 minutes to bring it closer to room temperature. This allows the outsides to cook faster and develop a better crust.


  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cumin
  • 3 lb boned lean veal shoulder, trimmed, rolled, tied
  • 4 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 lb. onions, peeled
  • 1/2 clove garlic, peeled
  • 2 teaspoons dried tarragon
  • 4 sprigs of fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 bay leaf


1. Mix together salt, pepper, cinnamon, and cumin. Rub over roast.

2. Heat 2 teaspoons of oil in a large skillet. Add onions, garlic, and tarragon. Cover and cook over low heat for 10 minutes. Set aside.

3. Heat the remaining 2 teaspoons of oil in an ovenproof pan large enough to hold all ingredients. Brown meat on all sides.

4. Add garlic-onion mixture. Add parsley, thyme, and bay leaf. Cover.

5. Bake in 325 degrees F oven for 11/2 hours, or until meat is tender.

6. Remove meat from the serving platter. Skim fat from cooking juices. Remove bay leaf and parsley. Cut roast into 1/4- to 1/2-inch slices. Pour a little cooking juice over the roast and serve the rest on the side.
