Vitello tonnato with Quebec grain-fed veal https://www.metro.ca/userfiles/image/recipes/Vitello-tonnato-Veau-grain-Quebec-4534.jpg PT40M PT50M PT7H30M
Oven temperature: 180°C (350°F). Heat about 3 Tbsp. (45 mL) butter and a dollop of oil in a large oven-proof pan. Brown the veal, a few minutes on each side. Place in oven for 50 minutes. The meat should be slightly pink inside. A meat thermometer should read 60 to 65°C (150°F) for medium-rare meat. Remove roast from the oven, let cool to room temperature, then refrigerate from 6 to 24 hours. Carve meat into very thin slices prior to serving. Tuna sauce Crush the garlic with a mortar and pestle. Place the crushed garlic in a bowl, and add the tuna, egg yolks, mustard, salt and pepper. Blend with a whisk. Dribble the olive oil in a fine stream into the mixture, whisking vigorously until the tuna sauce starts to thicken. Whisk in the lemon juice to soften the sauce, which should have the consistency of a very thick mayonnaise. Adjust consistency by adding lemon juice. Set aside in fridge until ready to serve. Mesclun Just prior to serving, combine and toss all the mesclun salad ingredients except the oil. Add oil, and toss again. Place a mound of the mesclun salad on each plate. Roll up slices of the veal into cones and arrange on serving plates. Spoon on a portion of tuna sauce and serve.

Preparation

Oven temperature: 180°C (350°F).

Heat about 3 Tbsp. (45 mL) butter and a dollop of oil in a large oven-proof pan. Brown the veal, a few minutes on each side. Place in oven for 50 minutes. The meat should be slightly pink inside. A meat thermometer should read 60 to 65°C (150°F) for medium-rare meat. Remove roast from the oven, let cool to room temperature, then refrigerate from 6 to 24 hours. Carve meat into very thin slices prior to serving.

Tuna sauce

Crush the garlic with a mortar and pestle. Place the crushed garlic in a bowl, and add the tuna, egg yolks, mustard, salt and pepper. Blend with a whisk. Dribble the olive oil in a fine stream into the mixture, whisking vigorously until the tuna sauce starts to thicken. Whisk in the lemon juice to soften the sauce, which should have the consistency of a very thick mayonnaise. Adjust consistency by adding lemon juice. Set aside in fridge until ready to serve.

Mesclun

Just prior to serving, combine and toss all the mesclun salad ingredients except the oil. Add oil, and toss again. Place a mound of the mesclun salad on each plate.

Roll up slices of the veal into cones and arrange on serving plates. Spoon on a portion of tuna sauce and serve.
