Prosciutto wrapped veal rack with Sauce Robert & parsnip mash


  • Preheat oven to 200°C fan forced (220°C normal).
  • Cook the parsnips in plenty of lightly salted, boiling water until tender. Then drain well and mash with the milk and butter. Taste for seasoning.
  • To make the sauce, heat the oil in a heavy-bottomed pot and gently saute the mushrooms and onion. Then add the wine and reduce by two-thirds, before adding 3 cups stock, little by little, and reduce again. Add the gherkins and capers with a little more stock. Mix well and continue boiling. When of a sauce consistency, add the mustard and whisk to incorporate. (Do not boil.)
  • At the same time, wrap prosciutto around the rack (removing the string first), with the ends underneath. Place in a lightly oiled oven tray, spray with a little more oil and cook in the oven for about 15-18 mins. Remove to rest, before slicing.
  • To serve, mound the parsnip mash on individual plates, top with the cutlets and spoon the sauce around.
