Nonna Ida's Style Rovelline Lucchesi

Rovelline is a traditional dish of the old farmers food.
This version is a little different from the original version as this one has Mirepoix (celery,carrot and onions) and it's missing garlic instead.

Ingredients for 4 people :

4 not too thick slices of Veal
150g  Carrot
200g Onion
150g Celery
3 Tablespoon of Chopped Tomato
A handfull of Capers
1 Egg
00 Flour
Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper

Preparation :

First of all take the slices of veal and add some salt  then cover them with flour and deep them into the egg and finally coat in the breadcrums.
Fry them into the olive oil (or if you preferer in the Clarified Butter - but in tuscany we use olive oil !)
Once they are ready put them aside for now and in a frying pan put the mirepoix with some olive oil,when it's golden add the chopped tomato and capers.
Now put the veal in the sauce you prepared adding a glass of water and let it steam.
Serve with the sauce on top and...Buon Appetito !
