“Very rich flavorful comforting stew. You'll want some nice crusty bread to soak in the 'gravy' that gets made in this dish. You could probably modify this for a crock pot as well, though I haven't tried. The bocconcini here doesn't refer to the little mozzarella balls, it refers to the bite sized pieces of veal. I got this recipe from Gourmet Magazine March 2003 issue. (p.s you can also sub Italian Hot peppers or jalapeno's for the Thai chiles... they're quite hot!)”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Soak porcini in warm water in a small bowl until softened, about 20 minutes. Lift porcini out, squeezing liquid back into bowl, then rinse porcini (to remove any grit) and cut into 1/2-inch pieces. Pour soaking liquid through a sieve lined with a coffee filter or a dampened paper towel into another small bowl.
  2. Pat veal dry. Toss one fourth of veal in flour.
  3. Heat oil in a 4- to 5-quart heavy pot over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking, then shake off excess flour and brown veal, turning, until golden brown, about 3 minutes.
  4. Transfer with a slotted spoon to a bowl. Coat and brown remaining veal in 3 batches in same manner.
  5. Add wine to pot and deglaze by boiling, stirring and scraping up brown bits, 1 minute.
  6. Stir in veal with any juices accumulated in bowl, porcini and soaking liquid, cream, milk, tomatoes, chile, and rosemary sprigs and simmer, partially covered, stirring occasionally, until veal is very tender, about 1 1/4 hours.
  7. Discard rosemary sprigs and chile, then stir in salt.
