Stuffing:

  • 1/3 cup fresh Italian parsley, washed and chopped
  • 4-6 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 3-4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Hungarian paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups Italian style bread crumbs
  • 1/3 teaspoon oregano flakes
  • 1/3 teaspoon basil flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • pinch of powdered sage or Bell Seasoning
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup Daiya Mozzarella Style Shreds (pareve/vegan)*
  • 1/4 cup black oil cured olives, pitted and finely chopped

Directions:

  1. Pour olive oil into a medium bowl. Add herbs, chopped garlic, and other stuffing ingredients except bread crumbs and cheese.
  2. Allow to sit 10 minutes to infuse the herbs.
  3. Stir in the cheese and bread crumbs. Mixture should be a consistency which allows you to make a smooth round ball out of the stuffing which doesn’t break apart and yet it should not be too liquid to hold this shape.
  4. If mixture is too dry, stir in a few tablespoons of hot water or chicken broth at a time until you’ve reached the right consistency.
  5. If mixture is too liquid, add a few tablespoons of bread crumbs.

Preparing the Veal:

  • 1 4-5 lb veal breast with pocket
  • olive oil spray
  • garlic powder
  • onion powder
  • paprika
  • salt
  • pepper
  1. Have the butcher make a large pocket in the side of a 4-5 lb veal breast. Rinse the veal and dry. Open the pocket and pat on the stuffing, with the largest portion in the center. Close the pocket with wooden toothpicks, tie shut with kitchen twine, or simply leave as is.
  2. Brush or spray the veal breast thoroughly with olive oil spray. Sprinkle with with a light coating of garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, pepper.
  3. Roast at 300°F degrees for 2 1/2 to 3 hours, or until tender and juice no longer runs pink, spraying every 45 minutes or so with olive oil spray.
  4. It’s better to slightly undercook this than to overcook, because if the veal is overcooked it will become tough and dry. If you suspect the veal is nearly cooked but hasn’t browned yet, spray with olive oil one last time, turn up the heat to 375°F and finish it for 10-15 minutes to brown.
  5. Sprinkle with a light dusting of paprika down the center and garnish with minced fresh Italian parsley.

Enjoy, gentle reader, enjoy!
