If you don't want to use veal, use a cut of sirloin, or a nice bit of pork. This cooks up quite fast and makes a delicious sauce.

Very easy to prepare dish with a delicious sauce. I made it with pork loin and my husband just loved it. I found, though, that I had to add a bit more water towards the end of the cooking time as even on a low simmer, it boils out.
