This sounds really good. Veal is so expensive here in the states but I love it.

I could see that varies in other countries...

According to Wikipedia, "sofrito" is a Spanish word for a well cooked and fragrant sauce. I watched Jose Andres from Made in Spain making sofrito with veggies (olive oil, onions, scallions and garlic). Since I am vegetarian, that's the one that suits me.

I like Greek and the rest of Mediterranean food but has to be with veggies only.

Keep your good work!

In Greek cuisine, the term sofrito refers to a specific dish native to, and almost exclusively to be found on, the island of Corfu. Sofrito is a veal steak slow-cooked in a white wine, garlic, and herb sauce, and is usually served with rice.[
