Step 1

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over high heat. Add pecans; cook, stirring, until fragrant, about one minute. Add shallots; cook 4 minutes, stirring occasionally until softened. Add half the mushrooms; cook 5 minutes stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid has evaporated. Transfer mixture to a large bowl.

Heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil over high heat. Add remaining mushrooms, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Cook 5 minutes. Add one-third of the spinach at a time, adding a new batch as it wilts. Drain, reserving liquid. Add mushroom mixture to bowl.

Run the matzo under warm water to soften. Crumble into bowl; mix well.

Sprinkle meat, including pocket with remaining 1 tablespoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Place veal in a roasting pan. Fill cavity with about 2 cups of stuffing. Close pocket and secure with skewers. Place remaining stuffing in 9-inch baking pan, cover with foil; set aside. Put reserved cooking liquid in the roasting pan. Cover tightly with foil. Cook 2 1/2 hours until almost fork-tender.

Remove foil, increase heat to 450 degrees. Place pan of stuffing in oven. Cook veal until browned on top, and fork-tender, about 30 minutes. Cool 15 minutes before slicing. If desired, reduce the cooking liquid by half, skim off fat and serve as gravy.
