3706.—KALBSVOEGEL (A Variety of Veal Olives.) (Fr.Olives de Veau.)

Ingredients.—1½ lbs. of lean veal, a few thin slices of streaky bacon, 1½ ozs. of butter, 1½ ozs. of flour, 1 teaspoonful of finely-chopped parsley, 1 teaspoonful of finely-grated lemon-rind, 1 gill of white stock, ½ a gill of white wine, meat glaze, mashed potato, salt and pepper.

Method.—Cut the meat across the grain into thin slices, flatten them with a cutlet-bat, and sprinkle liberally with salt, pepper and lemonrind. Place a thin slice of bacon on each piece of meat, roll up tightly and secure with twine. Heat the butter in a sauté-pan, fry the rolls until their entire surface is lightly browned, then remove them from the pan. Stir in the flour, fry until lightly browned, add the wine, stock, parsley, and the remaining lemon-rind, and boil up. Replace the meat in the pan, cover, and simmer gently for 20 minutes. When ready remove the strings, arrange the rolls on a bed of mashed potato, add the meat glaze to the sauce, boil up, and then strain over and round the meat.
