Recipe Ingredients for Veal Piccata

1/2 cup all purpose flour
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
12 ounces veal scallops, 4 pieces, pounded to a thickness of 1/8-inch
1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup dry white wine
1/2 cup chicken stock
1 garlic clove, chopped
2 tablespoons lemon juice, or more to taste
2 tablespoon capers, drained
1 tablespoon chopped parsley, optional, plus sprigs for garnish

Recipe Directions for Veal Piccata

  1. In a shallow bowl or plate combine the flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons of the salt and pepper and stir to combine thoroughly. Quickly dredge the veal scallops in the seasoned flour mixture, shaking to remove any excess flour.

  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until very hot but not smoking. Add 1 tablespoon of the butter and, working quickly and in batches if necessary, cook the veal until golden brown on both sides, about 1 minute per side. Transfer to a plate and set aside. Deglaze the pan with wine and bring to a boil, scraping to remove any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. When the wine has reduced by half, add the chicken stock, chopped garlic, lemon juice and capers and cook for 5 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened slightly. Whisk in the remaining 1/2 teaspoon of salt, remaining tablespoon of butter and the chopped parsley. When the butter has melted, return the veal scallops to the pan and cook until heated through and the sauce has thickened, about 1 minute. Garnish with parsley sprigs and serve immediately.
