Veal with Mushrooms

Tonight's dinner is an old family favourite that takes no time make.  My Mom used to whip this meal together after she worked all day, yet it still tasted like she spent hours in the kitchen.  We had a rule growing up that I only started to fully understand as I got older.  The rule was simple: Family starts at the dinner table.  We all enjoyed a family meal together every night until we were older and even then, we still had Sunday dinner as a family when we were working through the week.  Tonight, veal was even better then I remember and I am enjoying every second at the dinner table. 

6 slices of Provimi veal
1 clove minced garlic
2 tbsp butter
2 cups of mushrooms (we used cremini, oyster, button and porcini)
1/4 cup white wine
splash of Worcestershire sauce
salt and pepper
splash of cream
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
fresh parsley, chopped

  • Toss veal in olive oil and salt and pepper
  • Heat pan on high heat
  • Sear veal for 1-2 minutes per side and remove from pan and set aside
  • In same pan add mushrooms, garlic,salt and pepper and cook for 2 minutes
  • Add white wine and let alcohol evaporate
  • Add butter, Worcestershire and season if needed
  • Add cream and put veal into the sauce for 2 minutes until it thickens
  • Garnish with fresh parsley
