Veal Purée ~ 6-9 months

Veal comes from smaller, younger cows than beef does. These cows are usually milk-fed (as opposed to corn-fed, for the organically conscious), but they might be grass-fed as well. Veal is higher in cholesterol than beef, and pinker in color. Your baby isn't likely to prefer one over the other at this age, but the flavor is typically milder than beef.

Steps

Cook the onion over medium heat until translucent.

Add veal to the pan and fry until completely cooked, typically 4–5 minutes per side for a thin steak.

Cut into small pieces (less than 1 inch square) and place in a food processor or blender. Purée for about 30 seconds, until the meat becomes a chunky powder.

Add water or milk, 1 tablespoon at a time. Continue puréeing until smooth.
