Make it memorable. Make it Veal.


While the Beef. It’s What’s For Dinner. website primarily focuses on beef, we can also provide information on veal as well. You don’t have to be an expert chef to create a delicious meal using veal. It can be sautéed, stir-fried, braised, stewed, grilled or broiled. Add additional flavor by applying a dry rub, marinade, breading or a sauce. Cooked to 160 degrees for optimal doneness, veal is a great-tasting, nutrient-dense food that delivers more than 10% of the daily values for protein, zinc, niacin, as well as vitamin B12 and B6.

Cooking Tips

Veal is easy to prepare, but like any lean meat without excess fat, it is important to follow some basic preparation steps to get the best results:

  • Leave a thin layer of fat on roasts, chops and steaks to preserve juiciness; trim fat after cooking. Trim cuts for grilling more closely to avoid flare-ups.
  • Pound veal cutlets with the flat side of a meat mallet to a uniform thickness for even cooking.
  • Pat dry veal cutlets with a paper towel to promote browning.
  • Add salt and salty seasonings to veal after cooking or browning.
  • For moist, flavorful burgers, meatloaves and meatballs use a light touch when mixing and shaping.
