Kalbshaxe zubereiten
  • 2-2,5 kg knuckle of veal in whole
  • salt
  • pepper
  • sweet paprika
  • 1 tbs rapeseed oil
  • 2 pc onion
  • 1 Bund vegetable broth
  • 2 tbs tomato puree
  • 500 ml veal stock
  • 1 bottle dry red wine
  • 2 pc cloves of garlic
  • 1/4 bunch thyme fresh
  • 2 pc bay leaves
Bind and finish the Sauce
  • 1-2 tbs cornflour
  • 60 ml water
  • 60 g cold butter
  • salt
  • pepper
  • Wash and dry the knuckle of veal, season with salt, pepper and some paprika.
  • Brown the knuckle of veal in a roaster with the oil from all sides and remove from the roaster.
  • Brown small cut vegetables consisting of carrots, onion, celery and parsley root in the roaster, then add leek, tomato with tomato paste, roast light brown, deglaze with veal stock and red wine and bring to the boil.
  • Place the garlic, thyme, bay leaves and knuckle of veal in the roaster and braise with the lid in the oven at 170°C for approx. 2.5 hours. Turn the veal shank after 1.5 hours of cooking.
  • In the meantime, prepare the side dishes for the veal shank. Towards the end of the cooking time, check the cooking degree of the veal knuckle by piercing it with a meat fork: If the veal shank meat can be pierced without any noticeable resistance and no red meat juice escapes, the veal shank is cooked.
  • Remove the knuckle of veal from the roaster and keep warm. Pass the sauce through a fine hair sieve and bring to the boil. Mix the starch in cold water and pour into the boiling veal sauce. Continue cooking the sauce, so that the sauce binds. Before serving, season the sauce with salt and pepper and mix with cold butter.
