Vitello Arrosto Al Latte


6 tbs. butter
1/2 qt. milk
3 oz. prosciutto, cut into strips
1 3/4 lbs. veal loin
flour for dusting

How to make the Vitello Arrosto Al Latte – Roast Veal with Milk:

Spike the veal with a few strips of prosciutto. Melt the butter and the rest of the ham in a saucepan. Dust the veal with flour and brown evenly on all sides. Warm up the milk and pour 2 cups of milk over the meat, then salt to taste. Lower the heat, cover, and when the milk has been absorbed, add more. Continue to do so as the milk gets absorbed. The meat will be properly cooked when the milk is finished.

Remove the meat and slice it evenly. Place on heated platter, pour reduced cooking juices over and serve. Any kind of vegetable is suitable for this roast.
