  • 3 to 4 pounds veal shoulder roast

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • Salt, to taste

  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

  • 3 medium carrots, sliced

  • 2 medium onions, cut into quarters

  • 4 stalks celery, cut into 1-inch chunks

  • 1/4 cup water

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 1/3 cup white wine

Steps to Make It

  1. Brown the veal on all sides in the oil in a large skillet. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  2. Put the vegetables into the crockpot; place veal roast on top.
