Veal Scaloppini is a very popular Italian dish, and simple to make. After cutlets are browned, they are cooked in a nice wine sauce.


Coat cutlets very lightly with seasoned flour. Rub frying pan with garlic. Cook cutlets in olive or vegetable oil over low heat until lightly browned. Add broth slowly. Add mushrooms; bring to boil. Lower heat; cover; simmer 20 minutes, turning veal at least once. Add vinegar, parsley, bay leaf, and wine; bring to boil; remove from heat; serve at once with grated Parmesan cheese. Makes 6 servings.
