Tips and Tricks

Tomato coulis helps create a thicker, smoother sauce than canned crushed tomatoes. If you are not using the entire sauce recipe, you can freeze the excess in small freezer bags.
You can also decorate it with your favorite toppings.
Veal kefta can also be used as a ground beef substitute in your classic nachos, chili, or taco recipes.
