    Additional Information

    This is one lean cut; there is virtually no fat on it. The butt tender, sometimes called Chateaubriand, comes in two pieces.

    We like to cut it into medallions, pan sear lightly (remember it's lean), and serve with a creamy sauce for a classic treatment.

    Morel or chanterelle mushrooms, along with asparagus or spring peas would work well with the delicate veal.

    You might even slice it open, stuff with breadcrumbs and herbs and then roast these tender cuts.

    Like everything else at D’Artagnan, our veal is raised humanely to produce the best flavor. We work with a cooperative of small farms in upstate New York and Canada that raise Holstein calves on milk formula alone. The calves are never individually caged or penned.

    Instead, they are raised in group housing, in open spaces with clean straw bedding, free to socialize with other calves in a sunlit, comfortable environment.

    These unique veal barns have been lauded by Dr. Temple Grandin, an expert on humane animal husbandry. The barns are temperature controlled, with ample air circulation and plenty of space for free movement; the calves have access to the outdoors when weather permits. The farmers strive to minimize stress on the calves, and limit the number of calves per barn.

    The feed consists only of a high-quality milk protein product and pure well water, to which the calves are allowed 24-hour access, via a highly technical nipple feeding system. They are never administered any GMO products, antibiotics or growth hormones. Our veal farmers achieve a careful balance between tradition and technology, weighing the calves to determine their nutritional needs and monitoring them carefully to ensure their health and well-being.


    We work with a cooperative of small-scale veal farms in New York State and Canada that are dedicated to humane practices. Their innovative methods produce milk-fed veal that is tender, pale pink, delicate in texture and always delicious.
