Recipe Ingredients:

1 cup chopped prunes
1 tablespoon finely shredded lemon peel
1 tablespoon grated fresh gingerroot
1 (4-pound) boneless veal breast
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
2/3 cup Madeira wine

  2. Heat oil in Dutch oven or other oven-proof pan. Brown veal on all sides; drain if necessary.
  3. Add wine and water to pan; cover tightly. Cook at 325°F (160°C) until tender, 2 to 2 1/2 hours. Transfer to a warm platter; set aside.
  4. Skim fat from pan juices. Bring to a boil and simmer until reduced by half.
  5. Slice veal roll; discard strings. Spoon sauce over each serving. Garnish with lemon wedges if desired.
