Preheat the oven to 300F.
Heat the butter and olive oil in a pan. If you have a Dutch oven, use instead.
Dredge the veal in flour, add to the pot to brown on both sides.
Remove from pan, and add the carrots, celery and onion. Sauté for about 10 minutes.
Deglaze the pan with vermouth.
Let this sizzle and cook down a bit. Then, add the chopped tomato.
Using a large baking dish or Dutch oven with a good-fitting lid, transfer the vegetables to the bottom of this dish. Place the veal on top, and then cover with a layer of parchment before securing the lid. If using a Dutch oven, settle the browned veal chops back into the dish bordered by all the vegetables.
Place the dish in the oven for a good 3 hours.
