Dul’a - Stuffed Breast of Veal

Instead of a breast of veal, a breast of lamb can be substituted or two sets of lamb ribs can be sewn together with a pocket left open for stuffing.

Serves 8-10

Preparing Breast

  • 5 pounds breast of veal with some fat
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon allspice
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

Place the veal, salt and vinegar in a bowl and cover with water; let soak for about 1 1/2 hours. Drain and pat dry.

Using a sharp, pointed knife cut a pocket between the ribs and the meat and set aside.    Mix the pepper, allspice and garlic powder; then rub the mixture all over the meat, including the inside of the pocket and set aside while preparing the stuffing.


  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 pound lean beef or lamb, partially fat, cut into 1/2 inch cubes 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 cup white rice, rinsed
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 2 tablespoons almonds, toasted
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted

In a frying pan, melt the butter; then sauté the meat over medium until it turns light brown.

Stir in the salt, pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg, and rice. Add the boiling water; then bring to a boil. Lower the heat to a simmer, and cook for 15 minutes.

Remove from heat; then stir in the almonds and pine nuts.

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Stuff the pocket with rice stuffing, then sew the pocket closed. Bake covered allowing 35 minutes per pound. Serve with a salad.
