Veal Piccata


¼ Cup Unbleached Flour

½ Teaspoon Salt

¼ Teaspoon Fresh Ground Black Pepper

1 Pound Veal Cutlets

4 Teaspoons Olive Oil

1/3 Cup White Wine

1 Cup Chicken Broth

2 Tablespoons Fresh Lemon Juice

2 Tablespoons Capers

1 Tablespoon Butter (NOT Margarine)

1 Tablespoon Chopped Parsley

Place cutlets between two sheets of plastic wrap or waxed paper.  With a meat mallet, pound cutlets to ¼ inch thickness.  On waxed paper, combine flour, salt and pepper.  Coat cutlets with seasoned flour.  Shake off the excess. 

In a large skillet heat 2 teaspoons olive oil over medium-high heat until very hot.  Add half of the cutlets and cook until brown (for about 2 minutes).  Turn cutlets and cook 1 minute longer.  Using tongs, transfer cutlets to platter and keep warm.  Repeat with remaining 2 teaspoons olive oil and remaining veal.  Transfer to plate with the other cooked veal. 

Increase heat to high and add wine to skillet, stirring until browned bits are loosened from the bottom of the skillet.  Add the broth and heat to boiling.  Boil until sauce has reduced to ½ cup (4 to 6 minutes).  Stir in lemon juice, butter, capers and parsley.  When butter has melted pour sauce over veal.  Serves 4
