Cooking Processes - Fricaaseeing
Fricaaseeing is sauteing and serving with a sauce. Tender meat is fricasseed without previous cooking; less tender meat requires cooking in hot water before fricaaseeing. Although veal is obtained from a young creature, it requires long cooking; it is usually sauted, and then cooked in a sauce at low temperature for a long time.
