My Family's Favorite Dish

Lemonato is a traditional Greek dish that is often served for the Sunday meal. The dish is characterized by a wonderful lemony flavor, and it can be prepared with pork, poultry, veal, lamb, liver or vegetables only.

Lemonato is one of my family's favorite dishes. We enjoy eating this meal not only on Sundays but for other special occasions, as well. This recipe is my own.

Ingredients

  • 1 kilogram fresh veal, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 3 to 4 carrots, sliced
  • 4 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon black and red pepper powder
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons corn flour
  • 700 milliliters water

Instructions

  1. In a pot, heat the olive oil. Add the onion and garlic and let it sizzle for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the veal and continue sizzling on both sides. Add the wine and wait until the alcohol evaporates.
  2. Add all of the other ingredients except the corn flour. Simmer over low heat (i.e., from 1-9 set it at 4-5) for about 120 to 150 minutes, until the meat is tender.
  3. In a bowl, add the corn flour. Pour in the sauce from the pot and stir continuously until the corn flour dissolves. Then pour the mixture back into the pot. This will thicken the sauce.
