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.
1 teaspoon Hungarian sweet paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground sage
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1 pound (1/4-inch-thick) veal scaloppine
2 teaspoons olive oil, divided
2 teaspoons butter, divided
2 tablespoons freshly chopped shallots
1 (8-ounce) package presliced mushrooms
1/4 cup Irish whiskey
1/2 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
2 tablespoons sherry
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley (optional)
How to Make It
Combine first 5 ingredients in a small bowl; sprinkle evenly over veal.
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.
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.
This veal recipe was great! I prepared it as written except I substituted chopped onion for the shallots. It is a fast, easy recipe; my whole family loved it. I served it with mashed potatoes, steamed broccoli/cauliflower medley and homemade triple cheese buns.
