Veal Scallops in Irish Whiskey Sauce

Photo: Jan Smith
Yield 4 servings (serving size: 2 veal slices and 1/4 cup sauce)
For a more affordable alternative, use pork loin chops cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices instead of veal. To slice pork easily, place it in the freezer for 15 minutes before slicing.

How to Make It

  1. Combine first 5 ingredients in a small bowl; sprinkle evenly over veal.

  2. Heat 1 teaspoon oil and 1 teaspoon butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add half of veal to skillet. Cook 1 minute on each side or until lightly browned. Remove from skillet; set aside, and keep warm. Repeat procedure with remaining olive oil, butter, and veal.

  3. Reduce heat to medium. Add the chopped shallots and presliced mushrooms to pan, and cook 1 minute. Add Irish whiskey, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Add broth and sherry; simmer 3 minutes or just until sauce begins to thicken. Return veal to pan. Cover and simmer 1 minute or until thoroughly heated. Place veal on a serving platter, and top with mushrooms and sauce. Sprinkle with chopped fresh parsley, if desired. Serve immediately.
