Thread: Ground veal?

    Default Ground veal?

    There's a party meatloaf recipe I'm considering. It calls for ground beef,
    ground pork and ground veal. I don't know how long ago it's been since I
    saw veal offered at the little grocery here and I wonder what veal would
    contribute to the recipe. Any thoughts? Polly

    This is a standard mixture at my local grocery. I think the veal, a
    relatively tasteless meat, would contribute little beyond tradition.
    Consider substituting some ground turkey breast.

    Worth doing, assuming you have a source of veal that you like to use.

    Veal has a slightly different taste than beef. The most important thing it
    does is add richnesss to the dish. That makes all the difference in the
    world. Try not to leave it out if you can find it. We also now and then
    substitute ground pork for a mildly flavored bulk pork sausage if you can
    find it.

    When I make brown stock I always add about 1/3 veal bones, knuckles, etc to
    the stockpan. It makes the ultimate stock rich. As well your local butcher
    will have veal bones. It doesn't have any commercial value. Anything tied to
    the cow does have value and you will be charged for beef remnants, or he
    will have sold it off.

    Also! [sorry for the verbal diarrhea], make sure you use your own home
    ground soft bread crumbs from a tasty bread, like a sourdough. It adds a
    lot. I don't use anything from "wonderbread" type products.

    Without seeking out a high end butcher and taking my chances that they
    would have ground veal, I can only find it at one, maybe two grocery
    stores with extra, extra good butcher counters. Veal is bland and
    takes up the taste of the seasonings you put on it, so I've
    substituted ground chicken for what seems like forever. If you can't
    find ground chicken, lean ground turkey will be fine.

    Same veal mix-in at most grocers, therefore I use my own meat mixture
    for meatloaf; chuck-eye steak meat, chicken and Italian sausage. For
    the tastes-less of ground veal, methinks a grocer offers it in a
    meatloaf mix as a simple way to be rid of the veal at a better
    purchase price than if left alone.

    Many grocery store offer packages of "meat loaf mix" -- 1/3 each ground beef,
    pork, and veal.

    Ground turkey breast is *nothing* like veal. Just omit the veal and
    increase the beef.

    Helps to keep the texture of the loaf softer. Our old family meatball
    recipe is 50% beef and 25% each of pork and veal.

    Certainly closer in mouthfeel. Any turkey has turkey flavor, which is
    far different than veal. Ground turkey has become more popular
    because it has a better fatty acid profile than pork, and certainly
    better than beef. Of all the animal fats, beef is the least healthy.
    Since going on a high fat diet, I've gotten more careful about which
    fats I eat. Everyone has read my anti-hydrogenated fat stuff, and
    many roll their eyes, but partially hydrogenated oils are awful.
    Bovine butterfat is a far distant second, as far as unhealthfulness,
    but it is delicious.

    Pecan, olive and peanut oils are great replacements for less healthful
    fats, as are Canola and high oleic sunflower.

    This evening I made scrambled eggs with pecan oil instead of butter.
    The texture was nothing short of perfection, way better than butter.
    The flavor was different, and next time I'll try adding butter after
    the eggs have mostly solidified, using butter as more of a condiment.

    Tell that to people in Springfield, Illinois, they are proud of their
    chilli <-- (note two LL) with ground turkey and beef

    Back on to the topic, veal to me is good only if fried, preferably
    some style of 'cordon bleu' or breaded with eggs and milk and than
    breadcrumbs.
    Ground veal, or cooked or roasted, while it is really soft, I found
    to be bland as meat per se, a waste of money.

    I'm a Doctor Oz fan lately and he had a guest on today who said if you
    have to eat red meat, eat grass-fed bison. Leaner and lowest of the red
    meats in saturated fats. Can't say I've seen it in the store but it
    might be worth it to me to find it and try it.

    Not all saturated fats are equal. I think that sheep and goat have a
    better fatty acid profile than bison, though I don't have the
    references handy. Bison are very similar to cattle. Heck, they're
    cross-fertile. Grass feeding, rather than corn feeding, most
    certainly improves the fatty acid profile of all ruminants. I prefer
    the taste of corn fed, and the best practice is grass feeding and corn
    finishing. The cattle are fed only grass and hay until 3 weeks before
    slaughter, when corn is introduced, though there is a different
    technique called pasture-based finishing might be the way to go:

    Free range buffalo, no antibiotics, no hormone raised is something I got
    addicted to.

    They do get finished grain fed for some months so that detracts from some
    natural flavor.

    The one thing that attracted me is I can cook buffalo to bloody rare.
    I've never suffered ecoli or lysteria, etc., ever!

    The packages of caged/corn grain fed buffalo that you can buy in the
    supermarkets are tasteless. No better tasting than the equally lousy
    infused corn grain fed ground cow.

    My local butcher and buffalo supply dried up when they packed up and left
    town. It's been a while. DAMMIT!!!

    Nearly all veal these days is free-range veal; there's no ethical reason
    to abstain from it while consuming other meats. I don't even remember
    the last time I saw pen-raised veal; it's got to be more than 15 years.
