On March 1st I will be leaving for a ten day holiday in Paris, France.  I have never been to Europe and really look forward to this experience.  I will also take a brief day trip jaunt to London, England. I will be collecting and taking many picture that I can incorporate into my business activities.  I will share some of these shots with you on my return.  I plan to squeeze in time to write at least one blog during this time and will be looking for ideas that will help me enhance my internet business.  I am looking forward to the challenges of eating healthy and staying close to my fitness plan while in a foreign country.  In addition, I don’t speak French.  Although, I have been trying to learn a few phrases.

As I travel I will be seeking out recipes low in carbs and fat and high in taste.  Below is a tasty, nutritional and healthy recipe that you may enjoy preparing and eating.

 

 

 

Veal Rolls in Tomato Sauce

6 (4 ½ X2 ½ X ¼ inch) pieces veal sirloin (

1 lb.) Freshly ground pepper to taste

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 Tbsp. cornstarch

1 tsp. oregano (dried, crushed)

1 c. white wine

1 Tbsp. Fresh parsley, chopped

1 (28 oz.) can Italian plum tomatoes, drained

1/2 c. red onion, finely chopped

1 c. beef stock

½ c. celery, finely chopped

Pound veal steaks thin. Combine half of the minced garlic with oregano, parsley, onions, carrots and celery. Spread 2 tablespoons of mixture on each veal portion. Roll up and secure with toothpicks if necessary. Season with pepper.

Sprinkle each roll with cornstarch. In a large nonstick skillet, heat olive oil over high heat. Add veal rolls and sauté for 1 minute on each side. Remove veal rolls from skillet keep warm.

Deglaze skillet with wine. Add remaining garlic and vegetable mixture. Cook for 2 minutes. Add tomatoes and stock, breaking up tomatoes into small pieces. Cover and simmer 10 to 15 minutes until sauce thickens. Return veal rolls to heat through. Yield 6 servings.

Round steak can be used in place of veal which makes a less expensive dish. Low sodium canned tomatoes or fresh tomatoes will significantly reduce the sodium in this recipe.
