Recipe by twissis
READY IN: 30mins




  • Peel, core & cut apples into 1/2-in cubes. Place them in a bowl, add lemon juice, mix thoroughly so apples are well-coated & set aside.
  • Sprinkle veal escalopes w/salt & pepper & then w/the flour, shaking off any excess.
  • Heat butter & oil in a lrg skillet at least 15-in in diameter. When hot, add veal a few pieces at a time & saute till lightly brown on both sides (approx 4 min on ea side over med-heat).
  • When escalopes are cooked, arrange them on a platter & set aside in a warm place such as an oven heated to 180°F (80°C).
  • Add apples w/lemon juice & Calvados to the pan. Scrape up all pan encrustations & cook over mod-heat (stir freq) for 3 minutes.
  • Add cream & cont cooking till mixture has turned a rich ivory color. Reduce heat & cook (stir freq) for almost 10 min or till the cream has reduced by half & the sauce coats a spoon.
  • Taste for seasoning; you will prob need to add about 1/2 tsp salt. Spoon sauce over escalopes & serve immediately.
  • NOTE: The recipe says this serves 6 as a main-course, but I think it is more likely to serve 4 as a main-dish or 6 as an appy. I expect it may depend on what the entire menu looks like, so I will let you decide this for yourself.
