How to Make Veal Scallopini: A Simple Process With Spectacular Results

To start off, preheat your oven to 200 degrees F. While it heats up, place a wire rack over a baking sheet. In a shallow dish, combine flour, salt, and pepper. Pat the veal dry with paper towels, then dredge each piece in the flour mixture, shaking off any excess.

Next, in a large nonstick pan or cast iron skillet, heat butter and oil over medium-high heat. Once the butter stops bubbling, add the veal cutlets one at a time in a single layer, ensuring they are not overcrowded. Allow the cutlets to fry for approximately 2-3 minutes per side until they turn a beautiful golden brown.

Now, it’s time to create the flavorful sauce. Deglaze the hot skillet with wine, scraping up any browned bits. Add the garlic, capers, and mushrooms, allowing them to simmer until the mushrooms have released their liquid and started to brown. If the sauce becomes too thick, you can thin it with some chicken broth.

Finally, remove the pan from the heat and stir in the remaining butter until the sauce becomes creamy and coats the mushrooms.

To serve, create a bed of arugula on a platter, place the veal scallopini on top, spoon the marsala sauce over it, and garnish with parsley and pepper to taste.

Dinner is served!
