  • 2 lbs stewing veal cut into 1 inch/2.5 cm pieces
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 onions chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 2 potatoes cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 cups cubed peeled butternut squashes
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen green bean cut in 1-inch (2.5 cm) pieces
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


Sprinkle veal with salt and pepper. In large shallow Dutch oven, heat 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the oil over medium-high heat; brown veal, in batches. Remove to plate. Drain off any fat in pan.

Add remaining oil to pan; cook onions, garlic, thyme and oregano over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 3 minutes.

Sprinkle with 2 tbsp (25 mL) of the flour; stir to coat. Add wine and chicken stock; bring to boil, stirring and scraping up any brown bits in pan.

Return veal and any accumulated juices to pan. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and simmer for 45 minutes.

In small bowl, whisk remaining flour with 2 tbsp (25 mL) cold water; stir into stew. Add potatoes and squash; cover and cook for 10 minutes. Add green beans; simmer, covered, until thickened and potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in lemon juice. Serve sprinkled with parsley.
