This recipe comes from the cookbook "Celebrate!" I love the addition of mushrooms to the lemon-caper sauce.
- 1 1⁄2 lbs veal cutlets
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 1⁄2 cup all-purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1⁄2 lb fresh mushrooms, sliced
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1⁄2 cup chablis or 1⁄2 cup other dry white wine
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 2 teaspoons capers with liquid, undrained
- 3 tablespoons fresh parsley, minced
- thin lemon slice
- Place veal between 2 sheets of wax paper; flatten veal to 1/4 inch pieces, using a meat mallet or rolling pin. Sprinkle veal with salt and pepper, and dredge in flour.
- Combine the melted butter and olive oil in a large skillet. Cook the veal in the butter and oil until browned on both sides. Remove veal, reserving drippings in the skillet. Set aside, and keep warm.
- Saute mushrooms and garlic in the drippings for 1 to 2 minutes. Return the veal to the skillet; add wine and lemon juice. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 20 minutes. Add the capers and their liquid, and simmer for an additional minute.
- Transfer the veal to a serving platter. Sprinkle with the parsley. Garnish with thin lemon slices.
Yum! This was really simple and really good. I couldn't find cutlets, so used scallopini. The sauce is wonderful but next time I would double it. By the end of the cooking time there was hardly any sauce left because it had simmered down so much. Thanks breezer for a nice keeper. Made for Please Review My Recipe tag.
Delightful gourmet dish that was very easy (BJ's had already sliced the veal cutlets to the right thickness!). I think this dish might have magical powers... I used a 6 1/2-quart Le Creuset Dutch oven to maximize my surface for browning my many slices of veal. My stove tended to boil rather than simmer, so I opened the lid a little bit. We had plenty of sauce, as written. Made for Please Review My Recipe tag game.
