  • Prepare a white stock.
  • Chop the onion, carrot, garlics and leeks into brunoise.
  • Soak the chorizo pepper.
  • Clean the meat from tendons and fat.
  • Add salt and pepper and slightly flour the meat.
  • Sauté the veal and place into a pan for stewing.
  • Degrease the pan where the meat has been sautéed and fry to soften the vegetables, so they take some colour and absorb the meat juices.
  • Add the chorizo pepper pulp and the veal. Once browned, drizzle with the sweet wine (Pedro Ximénez) and allow to reduce. Then add red wine and let reduce again.
  • Soak with the white stock, covering the vegetables but not covering the meat, and let cook covered. Add more stock if needed.
  • When the meat is tender, blend the sauce and add salt as needed.


  • Cut the veal into 3 or 4 fillets, or dice.
  • Place the meat on a plate and pour over the sauce and serve with the Spanish style cut French fries as garnish.
