4 veal cutlets, pounded to 1/4-inch thickness
1/2 cup flour
Salt and pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
5 tablespoons butter, divided
1 cup white wine
1/2 cup chicken stock
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons capers
1 tablespoons chopped parsley


Put the flour on a plate or piece of waxed paper; season it with salt and pepper.
Dredge the veal in the flour, shaking off any excess.

Heat the oil and 2 tablespoons of butter in a large skillet over medium-high
heat.   Add the veal; sauté until brown on both sides, about 1 minute per side.
Transfer the veal to a plate and set aside.

Add the wine to the skillet, scraping up any brown bit in the bottom of the
skillet.  Bring the wine to a boil and cook until it is reduced by about half.
Add the chicken stock, garlic, lemon juice, and capers.  Cook for 5 minutes or
until the sauce has thickened slightly.  Whisk in the remaining 3 tablespoons

(Serves 4)


8 (2-ounce) veal cutlets
1/4 cup flour
Salt and pepper
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
8 ounces button mushrooms, quartered or sliced
1 cup sweet Marsala wine
2 tablespoons cold unsalted butter
2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

Season the flour with salt and pepper.  Dredge the veal cutlets in the
seasoned flour.

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Add the veal to the pan.
Sauté, turning once, about 2 minutes per sides or until golden brown on both
sides.  Transfer the veal to a platter and keep warm.

Add the mushrooms to the skillet.  Sauté until the mushrooms are lightly
browned and the juices have evaporated.  Add the Marsala, bring to a boil,
and reduce slightly.  Add the butter and return the veal cutlets to the skillet.
Bring just to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer for 3 to 4 minutes.
Stir in the thyme leaves and season the sauce with salt and pepper, to taste.

dish and drizzle with the sauce in the skillet.
