Best Veal Scallopini Recipe

I found the original version of this dish in a magazine and adjusted it to suit our family's tastes. Delicate fine-textured veal requires only a short cooking time, something that makes this simple entree even more attractive.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:2 servings


  • 2 veal cutlet (about 4 ounces each)
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 pound fresh mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup chicken broth
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley


  • 1. Flatten cutlets to 1/8-in. thickness. In a resealable plastic bag, combine the flour, salt and pepper. Add veal; seal bag and shake to coat evenly. In a skillet, heat 2 tablespoons butter and oil. Add veal; cook over medium heat for about 1 minute on each side or until juices run clear. Remove and keep warm.
  • 2. Add mushrooms to skillet; cook and stir for 2-3 minutes or until tender. Spoon over veal. Stir broth into skillet, stirring up any browned bits. Add parsley and remaining butter; cook and stir 2 minutes longer or until slightly thickened. Pour over veal and mushrooms. Yield: 2 servings.

"I've used this recipe three times and it is amazingly good. I purchase veal already cut for scallopini and it's a very fast dinner. It takes longer to make the spaghetti than the main course. I highly recommend this recipe."
