Veal Scallops in a Creamy Paprika Onion Sauce

"This simple recipe is quick and easy to prepare yet pleasing to the eye and the tastebuds. I've made it with regular paprika, which contrary to popular opinion, does have a very pleasing flavor. If your veal scallops are very thick, you might wish first to pound them down thinner between two sheets of plastic wrap."

ingredients

  • 2 large veal scallops (but preferably not too thick)

  • 3 onions, sliced in rings
  • 12 cup sour cream

directions

  • Cut each scallop in half; makes for a nicer presentation in my opinion and facilitates cooking.
  • Heat 2 TBS of the oil in a large (preferably non-stick) frying pan.
  • Add the paprika and mix completely into the oil.
  • Add the onions, and cook them over moderate heat until they are completely softened.
  • While the onions are cooking, salt and pepper the veal scallops.
  • Dredge them in the flour making sure to cover all surfaces and sides.
  • When the onions have softened, move them to the edge of the frying pan.
  • Add the final TBS oil to the pan, and when this is hot, lay your veal scallops in the center of the pan.
  • Brown well, about three minutes per side.
  • Now move the scallops to the outer edge of the pan and bring the onions back to the center.
  • Add the sour cream and mix well with onions until it is completely incorporated; once this is achieved, nestle the scallops in the sauce, turning them over once to allow each side a slight covering of sauce.
  • Cover the pan, and cook for about 5 minutes, or until sauce is bubbly and veal is tender.
  • Remove veal to serving dishes, give the onions and sauce one more good stir and serve over the top of the veal.

    The sauce is delicious & the real star of this recipe! While I used veal & Rita used chicken, it would also be good with boneless pork chops. I sauteed a large red onion & 2 small white onions and kept them warm in the oven while I cooked the veal. Thanx Minx for another winner!

    This dish was tender, rich.I replaced the veal with chicken because of cost. Not sure on the weight of the veal so I used 1 1/2 pounds of chicken.That I seasoned with salt, pepper and garlic powder. I did have to remove the onions from the pan to brown the chicken. Then replaced the chicken with the onions stirring in the sour cream adding back the chicken. I garnished with a thinly sliced Thai pepper for color a kick.

I am an American married to a Belgian, and have lived in Belgium since December 1999. Cooking is my major hobby. I'm also an avid reader, but I have difficulty finding the time. I love to travel. Since moving to Europe I've been lucky enough to have had the opportunity to go a couple of times per year to Paris, as well as having visited London, Rome, Florence, Naples, Amsterdam, and of course Brussels and Antwerp. I've seen at least parts of most regions of France, as well as parts of Germany, Austria, a great deal of Switzerland, Slovenia, Croatia, Luxembourg, and Monaco. I'm absolutely in love with the Bay of Naples and Sorrento coast areas of Italy, which my husband and I recently re-visited on a trip that included Rome, Puglia, Umbria and Marche. I'm still looking forward to Ireland, Spain, Portugal, the Czech Republic . . . the list is too long ! One of the bonuses of travel is getting to taste the local cuisine, and afterward trying to figure out how to duplicate it at home. I think cooking is one of the nicest things a person can do for someone they love (including themself!) I had to submit a picture with me and my cat, Sophie, as she insists on sitting in my lap when I'm sitting at the computer. If you are wondering what all that stuff hanging on the wall behind us in the photo is, it is just a small part of my husband's military medal collection. He was appalled by my posting this picture-- Our study is the messiest room in our house (thank god!)
