A Few Words About The Recipe
To the 30 minutes of preparation, you will need to add 12 hours of sous-vide cooking at low temperatures. Low-temperature vacuum cooking is governed by strict hygiene rules and must comply with the recommended cooking times and temperatures.
Veal tendron is stewed meat. It is a traditionally poached third category piece. Here we opted for long cooking at low temperature which will give the meat a melting and non-gelatinous texture while preserving the taste, unlike poaching. Cooking on a plancha set at 150 ° C avoids the charring of the marinade.
In this recipe, cooking the veal is essential, the marinade can, however, be adapted to everyone’s taste. I also invite you to also taste this veal tendron without the final lacquering to enjoy the flavor of the natural tendron. Simply delicious!
