I had eveything on hand except for demi-glaze, I also had to sub red wine for white because it's all I had, other than that, followed the directions... This dish was truly amazing, my husband and I both agreed it was restaurant quality; I served it with sauted rapini and garlic, and some crusty garlic bread, it was a sensational dish that I can't wait to make again :)

I like this recipe but I would dredge the veal in flour and saute it in oil first. Then my second step wold be to remove the veal and add the onions,mushrooms, garlic etc. directly to the pan and saute for a few mins. Then deglaze the pan with white wine and add a little broth and bring to a simmer (at this point add a pinch of saffron th turn the sauce a nice golden color)then add the cream. The final step would be to add the veal back to the pan and pour the sauce over it and serve.

This is fantastic!I made it for 2. I used Knorr's beef demi-glace,skim Carnation milk and I didn't have lemon juice.I also browned the veal and set it aside before making the mushroom sauce.If you love veal,you have to try this;it is a Wow recipe.I buy my veal at Costco;best price;I vaccum seal it and it is like fresh when you need it.I made this for Photo Tag; a recipe going into my Zarr's Our Favourites.
