Spezzatino con Piselli
Spezzatino (pronounced spet-tsa-tino) is Italian for stew and in this case it’s veal stew with peas.
Bring veal to room temperature and season with salt and pepper. Lightly brown it in olive oil and remove from the pot. Add more oil, and sauté a chopped onion with S&P until it starts to brown. Add tomato paste and stir with onions until it darkens. Add the potatoes, S&P and fry lightly. Add the rosemary, beef stock and deglaze the pot.
Return the browned meat, stir and simmer uncovered for ½ hour. Check for seasoning. Add the peas and wine and simmer for another ½ hour.
