INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 1 1/2 pounds veal scallops, pounded to 1/4 inch thickness
- salt and pepper to taste
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour for coating
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/2 cup dry Marsala wine
- 1/2 cup chicken stock, divided
- 2 tablespoons butter, softened
Season veal with salt and pepper to taste; dredge in flour to coat. Shake off excess flour. Melt 2 tablespoons butter and olive oil over medium heat in a large skillet. 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.
Pour most of the fat off from the skillet; 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 skillet.
Return meat to skillet; cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, basting meat with pan juices occasionally. Transfer meat to a platter.
Add remaining 1/4 cup stock to skillet and bring to a boil, scraping bottom and sides of skillet. 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.
