For the benefit of those who follow, I have made notes of the quantities that I used whilst testing this recipe. I also varied some of the ingredients to suit my larder:
- Thyme - 2 x 3" sprigs, added complete with stems, stems removed when the cooking had been completed.
- Marjoram, mine has gone to seed so I used 1/3 of a teaspoon of dried oregano.
- I have no savory, neither do I have a substitute, so it has been omitted completely. Reminder to self: add savory to my 'grow this next year' list.
- I could not obtain veal on the day so I used rump steak, finely sliced on the diagonal.
- White wine or sherry, 50 ml
- Stock, 100 ml
