2- to 2 1/2-pounds veal for stew, cut into 1-inch pieces*
Ground black pepper
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 bag (16 ounces) fresh or thawed frozen whole baby carrots
1 large onion, diced (about 1 cup)
5 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups Swanson® Chicken Stock
1/2 tsp. dried rosemary leaves, crushed
1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes
1 cup frozen peas, thawed
Hot cooked rice or barley
Season the veal with the black pepper.
Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the veal and cook in 2 batches until it’s well browned, stirring often.
Place the veal, carrots, onion and garlic into a 3 1/2- to 6-quart slow cooker. Sprinkle with the flour and toss to coat.
Stir in the stock, rosemary and tomatoes. Cover and cook on LOW for 7 to 8 hours**.
Add the peas to the cooker. Cover and cook for 1 hour or until the veal is fork-tender. Season with additional black pepper. Serve the veal mixture with the rice.
*You can substitute skinless, boneless chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch pieces, for the veal.
** Or on HIGH for 4 to 5 hours.
For more flavorful rice or barley, cook it in Swanson® Chicken Broth.
