Method

Braise the saddle, remove the meat from both sides exactly as described for Selle de Veau Metternich and cut into slices.

Re-form the saddle as described before using Sauce Soubise and a slice of truffle between each slice of meat.

Finally, coat the saddle with Sauce Mornay containing a quarter its volume of Soubise purée and glaze quickly under the salamander.

Place on a suitable dish and serve with the braising liquid after first removing all fat, passing through a fine strainer and reducing it.
