I have tried many recipes using flour. They have never been the one I looked for from my childhood. This was perfect. I only had sirloin veal on hand. Next time I will also have a lean pork also. Chicken breast would be a nice addition. I would not change a thing & I did think about adding some spice? Served with baked potatoes, mushrooms & salad. Thank you MizzNezz!
