So last night it was necessary to cook for my father, which is an experience I recommend to everyone. Not cooking for my father, per se.
We drove around until I could find meat that met The Haas Test Kitchen Standards. Big Y and then Whole Foods were neither big or whole, but I did find nice veal for nice stew at the latter.
Fast and good:
Roll veal in flour with salt and pepper.
Sear in olive oil.
Add chopped carrot, chopped celery stalk, can of tomato paste, two cups of white wine.
Adjust salt and pepper.
Simmer for an hour and serve.
