Bring to the boil, remove the scum, cover and simmer gently for about 1 hour or until tender.
Drain and cool.
Meanwhile thoroughly mash the tuna fish with 4 anchovy fillets and 1 X 15 ml spoon (1 tablespoon) oil, then add the egg yolks and either press through a sieve or liquidise until very smooth.
Stir in the lemon juice and gradually beat in the remaining oil, a little at a time, until the sauce is smooth and has the consistency of thin cream.
Season to taste.
Slice the veal thinly and arrange in a shallow dish.
Spoon the sauce over to coat completely, cover the dish and chill overnight.
Before serving, garnish with the remaining anchovies, capers, lemon slices and parsley.
