Shnitzels in sauce (Šnicli u saftu)

Delicious meat slices (šnicli) covered in thick sauce, how my grandma made it (I would always sneak into the kitchen to steal some toč (sauce) before it was done). Best served with some gnocchi (or something gluten free, if needed).

Suitable for gluten free diets.*

Takes 120 mins.

Makes 4 servings.

800 g veal cut into thin slices (šnicli); tenderize
3 onions medium size
3 cloves garlic finely chop
1 Tbsp tomato paste
50 ml red wine can be more
1 pinch nutmeg
1 Tbsp salt to taste
1 pinch pepper to taste
100 g parsley fresh, finely chopped
10 cloves to taste
1 tbsp mixed herbs (Vegeta) (optional)

Tenderize the meat (optional, but it's worth it). Finely chop the onions, salt them and saute on olive oil until they turn glossy. Add the šnicle, cover the pot and simmer for 10 mins or so. Add the spices: nutmeg, cloves, pepper, finely chopped garlic, parsley (and spice mix Vegeta if you have it). Simmer for 20 minutes with the lid on. Taste and add salt if needed, add some red wine and allow 5 mins for the alcohol to evaporate. Dissolve the tomato paste in a glass (or more) of water and add to the pot to cover the meat. Simmer (covered) on low heat for 1.5-2 hrs, or until the meat goes soft. Stir occasionally, add water if needed. When the meat is soft, take it out and blend mix the sauce to make it smooth and thick. Add the meat back it, add some more fresh parsley, and serve with gnocchi (or a side of your choice). Dobar tek!
