Recipe by Dr. Jenny

DH and I made this delicious dish for dinner a few nights ago. We used veal scallopine instead of the cutlets and it still turned out great. From Williams-Sonoma "Steak and Chop" cookbook.

This is pretty different than anything I have ever had before. The combination of paprika and tarragon was unique to me. The only change I made was to make it more diabetic friendly by not dredging in flour before cooking in butter and oil. I seasoned the meat directly, then grilled it. Just be aware, if you want to do this, to used less of the seasonings or it may be a bit spicy. Made for ZWT 6.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 veal cutlets (about 1 1/2 lb total weight)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon dried tarragon
  • salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter (plus more, if needed)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 lb wild mushroom, brushed clean and chopped (such as chanterelles, porcini, morels, shiitakes, or a combination)
  • 14 cup sherry wine (can also use marsala)
  • 12 cup chicken stock (or veal stock)
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream (or sour cream)


  1. Place the veal cutlets between 2 pieces of parchment paper or plastic wrap. Using a meat mallet or rolling pin, flatten the cutlets to an even thickness of about 1/4 inch. In a shallow bowl or deep plate, mix together the flour, paprika, tarragon, 2 tsp salt, and 1 tsp pepper. Dredge the veal on both sides in the seasoned flour, shake off the excess, and set aside.
  2. In a large frying pan, melt the 1 Tb butter with the olive oil over medium-high heat. When the butter is foaming, add the veal, in batches to avoid crowding, and saute, turning once or twice, until lightly browned on both sides, 5-6 minutes. Transfer the cutlets to a platter and tent loosely with aluminum foil to keep them warm.
  3. Add more butter if needed and add the mushrooms to the pan. Saute, stirring often, until softened and lightly browned, 4-5 minutes. Stir in the sherry, stock, and tomato paste. Raise the heat to high and cook, stirring often, until the sauce thickens, 3-5 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the cream.
  4. Transfer the veal to individual plates and top with the mushroom sauce. Serve at once.
