You can use your choice of veal scallopine or veal chops....the scallopine is more expensive, but also more tender. Make the sauce first, quickly saute the veal, and simmer for 20 minutes in the sauce. A wonderful Italian veal dish!

The sauce was flavorful and tangy. And the veal was so moist and tender. I really loved this dish. It smelled really good while the sauce was cooking too, and my husband kept coming into the kitchen to see what I was preparing. Thanks for sharing your recipe, breezermom. Made for 2014 Culinary Quest (Italy). Yum.
