Would you like to serve something other than turkey at your Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner? Try preparing some veal. Tender, moist and juicy, veal is a great meat for cooking and it's almost impossible to screw it up. All of these dishes cook faster than a giant bird so you can feel less stress in the kitchen. Pair these veal recipes with a fine Italian wine and you'll be ready to party.
