Ribs of veal


"Cut all the sinews from a piece of neck or ribs of veal,

cover the meat with plenty of butter and. half cook it on a

slow fire, then let it get cold. When cold egg it over and

roll it in bread crumbs mixed with a tablespoonful of grated Parmesan; fry in butter and serve with a garnish of fried parsley and a rich sauce. A dessert-spoonful of New Century sauce mixed with quarter of a pint of good thick stock makes a good sauce. (See No. 226.)"
