Easy Veal Marsala

    25 minutes

    This dinner is best made with a dry marsala wine so it is not too sweet. Can also be made ahead of time and reheated in the sauce.

    Serves: 4 

    • 700g veal schnitzel, pounded to 5mm thickness
    • salt and pepper to taste
    • 3/4 cup (90g) plain flour for coating

    Preparation:5min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Season veal with salt and pepper to taste; coat with flour. Shake off excess flour. Melt 2 tablespoons butter and olive oil over medium heat in a large frypan. When foam subsides, add veal 3 to 4 pieces at a time and saute for 2 to 3 minutes each side until browned. Transfer meat to a plate.
    2. Pour most of the fat off from the frypan; add wine and 1/4 cup of the stock and bring to a boil over high heat for 1 or 2 minutes, scraping the bottom and sides of the frypan.
    3. Return meat to frypan; cover, reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, basting meat with pan juices occasionally. Transfer meat to a platter.
    4. Add remaining 1/4 cup stock to frypan and bring to a boil, scraping bottom and sides of frypan. When sauce has reduces to a thick, syrupy consistency remove from heat and season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir in 2 tablespoons softened butter and pour sauce over meat.

    This recipe was scrumptious. I dipped the veal in egg before coating with flour mixture with a small amount of seasoned bread crumbs (just enough to give the veal more texture when cooking) I also doubled all the ingredients (except veal) and added mushrooms in step 3. Before adding the remaining chicken stock (I used chicken broth) I mixed 2tsp of cornstarch w/ the broth. This Recipe is definitely a keeper Thanks Terri!!  -  19 Oct 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I was so tempted to rate this significantly lower than four stars, for the sheer reason that if you were to cook veal scallopine as long as this recipe tells you to you'd totally ruin this dish. Totally. Saute the veal 2-3 minutes a side and leave it at that. Lean, tender veal needs very little cooking time. Having said that, if you don't overcook this, it's out of this world, (5-star) awesome delicious. Chicken breasts, turkey cutlets or lean pork, pounded thin, would be fine substitutes for expensive veal scallopine. Best served with a lightly seasoned pasta (garlic and olive oil). For something a little different, however, I served this with "Linguine with Marinated Tomato and Basil," also from this site.  -  26 Feb 2012  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Very Good,even my 7yr old liked it. I did increase the chicken broth to 3/4C & added a jar of mushrooms.  -  09 Feb 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
