Ingredients

  • 2 pounds bottom round (veal)
  • 2 egg yolks (hard cooked)
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 pinch sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups dry white wine
  • 1 onion (large, coarsely chopped)
  • 2 garlic cloves (crushed)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup tuna packed in oil (canned)
  • 4 anchovy fillets (rinsed, patted dry)
  • capers (for garnish)

Directions

  1. Place the veal in a small, deep, non-reactive bowl. Pour in enough wine to barely cover. Refrigerate overnight, covered tightly with plastic wrap.
  2. In a large saucepan or stockpot, combine the veal with the wine marinade, onion, carrot, garlic, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil over moderately high heat. Reduce the heat to moderately low and simmer, partially covered, until the veal is tender, about 1 hour. Remove the pot from the heat but leave the veal in the liquid to cool. Remove the veal to a cutting board, cover loosely with foil and set aside.
  3. Strain the cooking liquid through a sieve into a small bowl (you should have about 1 cup). Discard the vegetables. Add the tuna, anchovies, egg yolks, lemon juice, olive oil, vinegar and sugar to the sieve and force this mixture through with the back of a large spoon. Mix the resulting sauce until it is well blended and smooth.
  4. Cut the veal into thin slices. Arrange, overlapping on a large serving platter. Spread the sauce over the veal. Garnish with capers if desired. Serves 6.
