Jane’s Very Simple Veal Scallopini

Posted by: Magic 1278 | 16 September, 2011 - 7:59 AM
Veal Scallopini


Our Miss Jane says “I love this because even I can make it!”

A perfect Italian-style dish that takes less than half an hour to prepare and cook?


4 veal steaks, pounded reasonably flat – or 4 pieces of thinner veal schnitzel
A little plain flour for coating
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 small brown onion, chopped thinly
125 gm mushrooms, sliced
½ cup dry white wine or dry sherry
¼ cup chicken stock
4 tablespoons tomato paste
Dash of cream (light is fine is you’re counting calories)

•  Cut veal pieces in half or in thirds depending on size you like.
•  Coat veal lightly and evenly in flour.
•  Heat butter and oil together (the oil stops the butter from burning).
•  Brown the veal pieces on high heat and set aside.
•  Add mushrooms and onion to pan and cook for a couple of minutes, until onion is softened and slightly browned.
•  Mix together the wine, stock and tomato paste.
•  Pour over the mushrooms and onions.
•  Add browned veal pieces and cook for 2 – 3 minutes, until the wet mixture is very hot, but not boiling.
•  Stir in some cream to taste just before you’re ready to serve (make sure cream is completely worked through the sauce).

Top with chopped parsley or marjoram if you like.  Serve with mashed potatoes and steamed greens.
