Ingredients

  • 1 pound veal strips for braising
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 whole garlic cloves (remove before serving)
  • 6 slices of ginger, 1/4” thick
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • Pepper to taste

Preparation

We strongly suggest always browning the meat in advance so that nothing inappropriate develops during the critical low-temperature cooking phase. This will give the meat an attractive color and more flavor.

Slow Cooker/Crock Pot

  1. Mix all the ingredients in the slow cooker pot and cook at high temperature for 2 1/2 hours
  2. Cook at high temperature for 7 to 8 hours.

Oven

  1. Preheat the oven to 250°.
  2. Heat a little oil in an ovenproof dish, ideally enameled cast iron, and brown the milk-fed veal strips quickly.
  3. Sprinkle the cornstarch over the meat while stirring.
  4. Add the other ingredients, bring to a boil, cover and cook for about 40 to 50 minutes or until the meat is tender.
