Fontaine Family stewing veal cubes are the secret behind the most delicious stews. When cooking, opt for slow cooking over low heat to ensure optimum tenderness. Like all our veal products, our stewing cubes are made using veal raised without the use of hormones. They are the fruit of responsible farming on Canadian farms in Quebec. A sensible choice designed to delight you!
