Veal Piccata

Can I just tell you that this dish is the bomb!!! I made extra so I can eat it again a few more times. And it’s easy to make. I got this idea from a recipe on the Whole Foods website. And I made some tweaks just to simplify the process. It’s delicious with pasta. I also had it with polenta and it’s just as good.

So, do yourself a favor and get cooking!

Ingredients (2-3 Servings):
1/2 lb. Veal Scaloppine
1/2 cup Unbleached Flour, seasoned with Dried Herbs, Salt & Pepper
1 tbs. Butter
2 tbs. Parsley, finely chopped
Olive Oil
1 cup Low-Sodium Chicken Stock
2 tbs. Capers, drained
1 lemon

Directions:
Pour flour in a wide bowl, season with salt & pepper and whatever dried herbs you have (tarragon, thyme, basil, etc.). Dredge veal pieces to lightly coat, shake excess flour and pan-fry with a little olive oil in medium heat. Turn once, cook no more than 5 minutes total. Set aside, cover to keep warm.

In the same pan, add more oil and 2 tbs. of the excess seasoned flour, cook for a couple of minutes. Now, add 1/2 cup of the stock and stir until bubbly and thickened. Add more stock, if needed, until a gravy consistency is achieved. Whisk in the butter until melted, then turn heat off. Mix in the parsley and capers. Squirt the juice of 1/2 lemon.

Place the veal pieces on a plate and smother with gravy. Garnish with lemon zest, more parsley and a lemon wedge. Serve with pasta, polenta or egg noodles.

Serves 2. Pair this classic combination of veal, capers, lemon

and parsley with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc.

    […] sauce is similar to the one I made using veal. Of course I made little changes. Again… what else is new? I just thought I’d use […]
