Veal Scallopini


This is the first time I made this dish, and I just loved it.

Veal Scallopini

3 T olive or veg oil
1/2 C all-purpose flour
1 lb thin veal scallopini (less than 1/4 inch thick)
1/2 stick butter, cut into pieces
1/2 fresh lemon
1.5 T drained small capers

Heat a 12 inch heavy skillet (not non-stick) over high heat until hot, then add oil and heat until hot.
Meanwhile, stir together flour, 1 t salt and 1/2 t pepper, then dredge veal in flour, knocking off excess.
Cook veal in 2 batches, turning once, until browned and just cooked through, 2-2 1/2 minutes per batch.
Transfer to a plate.
Discard oil from skillet, then add butter,and cook over medium heat, shaking skillet frequently, until browned and fragrant, 1 - 2 minutes. Stir in juice from 1/2 lemon, capers and 1/4 t each of salt and pepper. Return veal to skillet just to heat through.

mmmm.... this looks fabulous! A nice recovery after the stouffer's chicken & noodles fiasco, right?

Lemon and capers -- looks pretty darned easy and yummy, too. I agree with Anno about the recovery!

Mmmmm, capers. There is something I've really learned to love about that tart briny flavor as I've gotten older. Sometimes the tastiest recipes are also the simplest ones!

Don't eat veal but I bet it would be great with chicken, too. :-)

Ohhh! How amazing does that look? I've never been a cook but I'm looking to change that so maybe I'll try this recipe. It certainly looks inspiring!!!

Mommy doesn't eat veal but she said the recipe looks delicious. I, on the other hand, love to eat everything. Oops, I mean I'm on a special diet.
