3 cloves garlic, slivered
1 stalk celery, finely chopped 70 g
800 g veal roast, round or top sirloin
1/3 cup white flour (all purpose) 45 g
1 tbsp olive oil 15 mL
1 tbsp butter, unsalted 14 g
1 tbsp Dijon mustard 16 g
1/4 cup white wine [optional] 65 mL

2 bay leaf 0.4 g
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g

Before you start

Fifteen minutes before serving, put the plates in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when needed.


  1. Prepare the vegetables: peel the garlic cloves and cut them lengthwise into slivers, finely chop the shallots and celery. Using a small paring knife, cut small slits about 2 cm deep in the roast and put a garlic sliver into each slit. Coat the roast with a dusting of flour.
  2. Heat the oil and butter in a pot over high heat. Brown the roast on all sides a few min, then remove it and brush it with the mustard. Set aside.
  3. Add the shallots to the pot and sweat 1 min. Put the roast back into the pot and add the remaining ingredients. Add salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat, cover and simmer for about 1 ½ hours.
  4. Remove the roast from the pot, strain and reserve the cooking liquid through a sieve, then discard the vegetables. Adjust the seasoning of the cooking liquid and use it to accompany the roast.
  5. Serve on the warmed plates.
