Veal Braisé with Carrots


My grandmother used to make this for us kids, it was a favourite.
Gluten Free
BLW adaptable: cut carrots in larger chunks, round pieces the size of a coin are best avoided with babies, carrots will be super soft, which makes it very safe. Cook without the wine, if it concerns you,
Preparation: 15min. Cooking: 1h


  • Veal for braising, 600-800g (ask you butcher), the whole piece of meat is placed in your pot (it is not cut to chunks).
  • Carrots, 400g, sliced
  • Onion, 1 large
  • Olive oil, 3Tbsp
  • White wine, 1 cup
  • Thyme, 1 sprig
  • Bay leaf, 1

You will need a large pot or pan with a thick bottom.

Let’s do it:

  1. Season the meat and sear on all sides, with one Tbsp of olive oil.
  2. Remove the meat and place the carrots, herbs and the rest of the olive oil in the pot to sweat them for 5-10 minutes, to bring out flavours.
  3. Place the meat back it the dish, and bring the heat to high for 1 min, then pour the wine to deglaze. Scrape the bottom of the pot.
  4. Reduce heat to simmer and add 1 to 2 glasses of water to cover partly (1/3).
  5. Let simmer for about 1 hour.
  6. Serve at once with bread.


Bon appétit.
