The potatoes however were mixed with some chopped green olives before going into the oven- it adds an extra taste.
The stems were kept on the roasted tomatoes- I feel it gives an interesting visual effect.
And because there really is not so much to write about simple pleasures, I will cut it short and just conclude that a no-fuss meal can provide as much satisfaction as a high end gourmet menu! This dish is quick to prepare, leaves almost no mess behind, and is full of taste!
Recipe for a delicious and simple veal dish:
- Veal- try to get some nice thick pieces, like bottom round
- Green olives
- Milk (or cream if you want something more rich)
- Olive oil
- Small tomatoes (kept with stems if you wish)
- Salt & Pepper
How to make it:
Peel the potatoes and slice them. Place them in a deep baking pan. Chop the green olives. In a small bowl, mix some milk, olive oil, salt, pepper and the chopped olives. Add this mixture to the potatoes in their baking pan, and make sure the potato slices are well covered with this. Bake in oven for about 20 minutes. Once they are ready, place the tomatoes in the oven under grill, and keep the potatoes too- so let them both grill for about 10 minutes. During that time, heat a pan, add some olive oil, add pan sear the veal on high heat first, and then lower heat. Before reducing the heat, season with salt & pepper. Serve everything together, this should be enjoyed at an edible hot temperature. Enjoy!
