Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas 4, season the meat on all sides with salt and pepper and coat with flour. Heat the oil and butter in a flameproof casserole dish, add the veal and brown on both sides until coloured, then remove and keep warm. Add the onion, garlic, carrot and celery, and sauté until lightly coloured. Add the thyme, bay leaf and lemon peel, then add the wine and stock; finally add the tomatoes and tomato puree and stir well.
Return the meat to the pan, then cover and braise in the lowest part of the oven for 1½ hours until the meat begins to move away from the bone. Remove the meat and reduce the liquid, seasoning with salt and pepper if necessary.
