Veal is a lovely meat which has a softer flavor than beef. The most popular cuts are osso bucco, escalope’s and loin steaks. We purchase veal from suppliers that comply with the highest welfare standards.
Veal escalopes have always been a popular product. They are quick and easy to cook.Prepared from the topside, top rump/thick flank and silverside, which will be trimmed completely free from all surface fat, skin, internal fat, and sinew, tendon and cartilage gristle. The escalopes will be cut across the grain of the muscle and will be battened out evenly between sheets of polythene. Fillet (ex rump) and fillet (ex loin) may also be used, in which case escalopes may be cut with the grain.(taken from M.B.G. 4th edition)
