If the sirloin is unavailable, the best substitute is veal tenderloin treated the same way but only roasted for 12-15 minutes.For the braised vegetables, use your favourite vegetables but try to include leeks as they ore excellent with veal. You could include parsnips, golden beets, sweet potatoes or even squash.Vito’s Advice : “Always put the roast in the oven fat side up to make the meat really tender.”Ingredients- veal3 lbs (1.5 kg) veal sirloin, tied in a roll ( we used top sirloin )3 tablespoons (45 ml) small rosemary sprigs Salt and freshly ground pepper1 tablespoon (15 ml) olive oil2 tablespoons (25 ml) butter1 cup (250 ml) chicken stock ( can use beef stock instead)4 cloves garlic, peeled and halved- braised vegetables3 carrots, peeled and cut into 2 inch (5 cm) lengths3 parsnips, peeled and cut into 2 inch (5 cm) lengths1 lb mini potatoes (500 g)3 cups (750 ml) chicken stock (or beef stock)2 white turnips, peeled and cut into wedges1 bunch leeks, dark green leaves removed, cut lengthwise through the root12 stalks asparagus, tough ends trimmedDirectionsPreheat oven to 400°F (200°C).Cover meat with rosemary sprigs, tucking them inside strings if possible.Season with salt and pepper.Heat oil and butter in a large skillet over high heat until sizzling.Add veal and brown on all sides, about 1-2 minutes per side.Remove veal and place in a roasting pan.Add stock and garlic to skillet, scraping up all the bits on the base.Bring to boil.Pour hot stock into the roasting pan.Place pan in oven and roast for 40-45 minutes (depending on thickness) or until medium-rare ( if stock is reducing too quickly in pan, add up to ½ cup/125 ml water ).While veal is roasting, place carrots, parsnips and potatoes into a pot of cold chicken stock over high heat and bring to a boil.Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes or until slightly softened.Addmoreless
