Anchovy paste or soy sauce instead of salt or Parmesan rind in the broth could all work well.

Many veal stews don't use prosciutto. Especially French ones - Blanquette de Veau, for instance - here's Daniel Boloud's version: http://www.foodandwine.... Or Veal Marengo - here's the inimitable Pierre Franey's recipe (WHY is he rarely mentioned anymore?): http://www.pierrefraney.com/recipes/beef_veal_and_lamb/veal_marengo.html. Also, many others. Prosciutto/pork isn't a default ingredient for a lovely veal stew.

If you want the salty cured taste of prosviutto, go for a quality aged cured beef product under pastrami or other names.

And yes, Pierre Franey taught many of us how to cook the French way and he has great recipes!
