Wine Pairing Recommendation

A full-bodied Chardonnay pairs perfectly with the rich flavors of this stew.

Can I use pork or beef instead of veal?

Absolutely! Any lean cut of meat will work well in this recipe.

Do I need to brown the veal before adding the liquid?

Browning the veal is optional, but it adds depth of flavor and helps create a nice fond in the bottom of the pot.
