Reviews for Veal Scallopini
"I should have paid attention to the one review. I put chopped green onion for garnish, at least that added some colour."
"I was very disappointed. I usually follow a different, but similar recipe for this but thought I would try something different. The problem is leaving the breaded cutlets in the pan when adding the broth. When they simmer, the pretty, golden crust becomes a soggy mess in the bottom of the pan. If you use this recipe, cut the broth down to about 1/3 or so cups and remove the veal cutlets from the pan before adding it and jmust cook the mushrooms in the broth."
