    1 tablespoons dried tarragon leaves

    1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
    2. Melt 4 tablespoons of the butter in a heavy flameproof casserole. Add the veal and cook, turning frequently, over low heat, about 5 minutes. Do not allow it to brown.
    3. Stir 2 tablespoons of the flour together with the paprika, coriander, and salt and pepper in a small bowl. Sprinkle this over the veal and continue to cook over low heat, stirring, for 5 minutes. Do not let it brown.
    4. Add 2 cups of the tomatoes, the chicken stock, onions, shallots, garlic, parsley, tarragon, and orange zest. Bring to a boil. Cover, transfer to the oven, and bake until the veal is tender, 1 1/4 hours.
    5. While the stew is cooking, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in a skillet. Quickly sauté the mushroom halves over medium-high heat until golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Set them aside.
    6. Remove the casserole from the oven, and pour the stew into a strainer placed over a bowl. Reserve the stew and the cooking liquid separately.
    7. Place the casserole over medium heat, and melt the remaining 3 tablespoons butter in it. Sprinkle in the remaining 2 tablespoons flour, and cook over very low heat, whisking constantly, for 3 minutes.
    8. Whisk the reserved cooking liquid slowly into the casserole and simmer slowly, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes.
    9. Whisk the cream and adjust the seasonings. Return the stew to the casserole. Gently stir in the remaining 1 cup tomatoes and the reserved mushrooms. Simmer until heated through, 5 minutes. Transfer to a deep serving dish, sprinkle with parsley, and serve.
