    BecR's Note:

    This is a mouthwatering Swiss specialty dish originating in the town of Zurich, Switzerland. Typically served with Rosti (Swiss hashbrowns), but equally good with mashed potatoes, spaetzle, or dumplings. There are many versions of Geschnetzeltes that can be found throughout the region in restaurants and in home kitchens, alike. I particularly like this version with lemon and parsley.

    1. 1
      Sprinkle the flour over the veal strips, and coat well.
    2. 2
      In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, melt half of the butter and half of the oil and as soon as the butter foams, immediately add the meat and quickly brown on all sides. Set aside meat to a dish and cover with foil to keep warm.
    3. 3
      Add remaining butter and oil to pan and sauté the onion and garlic for a couple of minutes. Now stir in the mushrooms and lemon zest and cook until mushrooms begin to soften, about 5 minutes.
    4. 4
      Add the wine to deglaze the bottom of the pan, using a wooden spoon to scrape up any browned bits. Stir in the veal (and juices!) and cook over low heat for another 10 minutes.
    5. 5
      Stir in the cream and season to taste with paprika, salt and pepper. Let bubble for a few minutes until hot, then stir in the lemon juice and serve sprinkled with fresh snipped parsley.

      This classic Swiss dish is as good as I remember it from back home, all creamy delishiousness! I used inexpensive stewing veal, which took a little longer to cook through; it took about an hour and a half for the meat to get tender but it was worth the time and the sauce is out of this world! I know the traditional side dish is Roesti but the new potatoes at the market just looked so inviting that I went with it. This recipe is is a stand by that never gets old! ThanksBecR!
