This is yummy served over mashed potatoes. Boneless chicken or lean pork could be substituted for the veal if desired.

I used a bit more butter as I had to brown the veal in two batches. I found the sauce was thin too so I added a slurry of 1 tbsp cornstarch and that thickened it up just right. I think that garlic would be a nice addition in step 2 and I would even add more paprika next time. Thanks for the recipe!
