The meat of a young cow is called beef or veal. It is not as popular and in demand as other varieties. This is due to the fact that not every hostess can cook it deliciously.
But by observing certain nuances in this process, veal dishes can be made favorites on any table.
First you need to learn how to choose the meat. Definitely need to take chilled. The color should be pale pink, this indicates the youth of the animal.
During cooking, it is necessary to take into account that this meat has a rather thin layer of fat and a large amount of moisture. Therefore you should not overcook it, otherwise you risk getting “rubber” at the exit.
It is quite easy to cook baked veal in foil. The most important thing is to find a suitable piece of meat. For this case, fit tenderloin of a young calf. Cutting the cooked dish into portions and serving on the table with a side dish, you will understand that the holiday was a success.
First you need to cook the marinade. We take a deep bowl, spread granulated mustard (if you like more bitterness — double the dose), sour cream, finely chopped garlic and spices, mix everything.
Rinse the meat, let it dry, cut off the unnecessary film or veins from it, form a piece of the most ideal shape. Carefully rub the marinade into it, place in an iron bowl, pour the rest of the dressing on top and leave to marinate for 6 hours.
Take a glass roasting pan for baking and lay out the foil in several layers, put a piece of tenderloin, close tightly so that the tightness is not broken and the juice does not leak out, otherwise the dish will be dry.
Turn on the oven at 190 degrees and send the roaster in it for three hours. Cooking time may vary depending on the size of the piece and the desired degree of roasting.

Mix homemade mayonnaise with spices and salt in a small plastic bowl. Abundantly, sparing no sauce, we coat the piece of meat from all sides. We cut off a sleeve of the required length. We tie on one side with a special thread.
We warm the oven to 180-190 ° С. We send the meat in the sleeve and tightly tied. We set to prepare for two hours. You can insure and put in two bags so that during baking it will not burst and the juice will not spill over the baking sheet.
When it starts to burn, smoke will appear in the oven, and the dish will spoil. Readiness can be checked by piercing with a sharp knife. If you see blood, you still need to bake, and if you have clear juice, the dish is ready.
