Veal Marsala

Prep: 19 minutes; Cook: 17 minutes

Sweet Marsala wine from Sicily adds a signature rich, smoky flavor to this classic dish. Look for very thin scallops (slices) of boneless veal, sometimes labeled as veal scaloppine; these are the most tender. If the thinner scallops are not available, place thicker veal cutlets in a large heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag or between two sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap, and flatten to a 1/8-inch thickness using a meat mallet or rolling pin. Also try this recipe with chicken breasts or pork cutlets.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 3 ounces veal and 1/4 cup sauce)
