Veal Cutlets with Rosemary Butter

Veal Cutlets with Rosemary Butter

This French Fridays with Dorie recipe was supposed to be Veal Chops with Rosemary Butter.  As you can see from the photos, those are not chops.  I could not find veal chops locally, but I did find some fresh veal scallopine.  I would love to try this recipe with veal chops some time, because the photo in the book looks incredibly delicious.

The scallopine were a very good substitution.  Very quick to cook on the stove, and probably “lighter” than the chops would have been.

Veal Scallopine

Once again, a simple recipe from Around My French Table.  After marinating in olive oil, rosemary, and thyme for the day, the veal is quickly seared in a skillet on the stove.  A quick pan sauce is made, then the meat is topped with a delicious rosemary butter.

I did have to leave off the pan sauce.  During the searing process my pan got a little too blackened, and the sauce ended up tasting like charred water.  Not good!

I served the veal with mashed potatoes and steamed green beans (both fresh from the garden!).  The herbed butter tasted good with everything on the plate.  It was a lovely meal!

  1. Wasn’t this tasty? I adored the herbed butter. The veal is gone, but I have some green beans. Perfect topper! Thanks for the idea.

  2. The butter was a winner on this one!

    I love green beans with my protein. It always works!

  3. Look how thing that is! Must have cooked up in seconds. Would be perfect for a weeknight meal.

  4. A lot of cuts work here I think, the flavored butter can enhance any meat! Perfect with green beans.

    Boy I have not had scallopini in a while – it looks fabulous, as does that whole plate. And that rosemary butter was so good it is going to prove dangerous 🙂 YUM. Tricia

  6. I like the idea of scallopini.. the chop was just too much meat for me. Nicely done.

  7. Your plate is so artfully arranged…really pretty! I was so worried I wouldn’t be able to find veal chops. Glad to know scallopine is good in a pinch!

I love hearing from you! Leave your comments here.
