Moschari Noua (Pot Roast Beef)

Noua veal pot roast

Moschari noua is a pot roast beef using the round part of beef. It can be cooked in a pressure cooker or slowly cooked in the oven in a casserole. I always serve it with mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables and top it with a very flavourful gravy made with the juices of the meet.

Slicing veal

In my pressure cooker there is a steam basket for steaming vegetables and I steam mine in there. If you don’t have one, steam them or boil them the usual way.

If the meat will be cooked in the oven, you have to brown the meat in the skillet first and then transfer it in an oven proof casserole with lid and boil or steam the vegetables separately.
