Best Veal Scallopini

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.
  • Makes
    2 servings


  • 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


  • Flatten cutlets to 1/8-in. thickness. In a shallow dish, combine flour, salt and pepper. Add veal; 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.
  • 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.

    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.
