Ingredients

260 g veal cutlets, thinly sliced
2 tbsp white flour (all purpose) 16 g
2 tbsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed 3/4 lemon
2 tbsp butter, unsalted 28 g
1/2 tbsp canola oil 8 mL
1/3 cup beef broth 85 mL
1/2 tbsp Italian parsley, fresh, chopped 3 g
1 clove garlic
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Before you start

For good results, have the veal sliced very thin, i.e. less than 3 mm. If possible, choose «milk-fed veal» which is much younger and more tender than the grain-fed one.

Keep the serving plates in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.

Method

  1. Flatten and tenderize the cutlets using a meat pounder. Make a few shallow cuts around the outside edge to avoid curling during cooking. Coat them with the flour and shake off the excess.
  2. Heat the butter and oil in a pan over medium heat, taking care not to let them burn. Add the whole garlic cloves, sauté 1-2 min, then add the cutlets, and brown each side for about 1 min.
  3. Pour the warm broth into the pan, cover, and cook over low heat 5-6 min. Take out the garlic, add the lemon juice, then cook 1 min. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Sprinkle with chopped parsley then serve on the warmed plates.

really good, really simple and fast. I did the greek raosted vegetables as a side, and the lemon in this dish enhanced the vegetables.

Our scaloppines were a bit too thick and some pieces ended up being less tender than expected (even if the cooking instructions/time were followed thoroughly). Very thin scaloppines is a must. We doubled the broth to have some sauce left, but it all evaporated... We were hoping to have some sauce to serve with it. Served with capers, it adds a nice touch.
