so add the pancetta back when you put the veal back in to the oven for 2 hrs. so a cup of wine is 8 fluid ounces and a cup of onions is 8 dry ounces.

I will cook it saturday and tell you how it went.

When I list a cup of onions in a recipe, I mean you should chop enough onions to fill a one cup measuring cup. The same volume as a cup of wine.

Sorry, Nick. I don't know where you are. A cup is 237 ml.

This is an American recipe. A cup measure is a measure of volume, not weight. The measure of the ingredients in this recipe that call for cups or fractions of cups all use the same measuring cups. I use the individually sized cups rather than a graduated larger cup. As I said in my earlier post, it is equal to 237 ml.

These measures are not critical. If each is a little over or under, the recipe will not suffer. You may find, after making this recipe, that you want to change some of the quantities to suit your preference.

The sauce is slightly thick, not thick like a flour based gravy.

The pancetta will add another flavor note to the dish that my version of the recipe lacks. I think it's worth a try. I may add it to my recipe next time around.

i was thinking of adding it with the carrots and celerys as that stage. So ot confirm a cup of onions is what it takes water to fill a cup. So you want to fill a cup of onions effectively. Wouldnt it be easier to specify a number for us europeans .

But Nick, then you are looking at the size of an onion as well. You need to have a universal measurement such as a cup irrespective of Imp/metric

If you prefer, use one meduim onion. I don't know how much it weighs.

As I said earlier, these measures are not critical. A little onion more or less will have little impact. Same for the carrots and celery.
