I found the best veal scallopini recipe in a magazine and adjusted it to suit my family's tastes. Delicate, fine-textured veal requires only a short cooking time, making this simple entree even more attractive. —Ruth Lee, Troy, Ontario


  • 2 veal cutlets (about 4 ounces each)
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 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 veal cutlets to 1/8-in. thickness. In a shallow dish, combine flour, salt and pepper. Add cutlets; turn to coat. In a skillet, heat 2 tablespoons butter and oil over medium heat. Add veal; cook until juices run clear, about 1 minute on each side. Remove and keep warm.
  2. Add mushrooms to skillet; cook and stir until tender, 2-3 minutes. Spoon over veal. Stir broth into skillet, stirring to loosen any browned bits. Add parsley and remaining butter; cook and stir until slightly thickened, 1-2 minutes longer. Pour over veal and mushrooms.
