Breaded Veal Cutlets with Peas and Pancetta

Veal features in various Italian dishes and its distinctive flavor and tender texture make it a worthy ingredient. Here we are coating it with a thin coating of mayonnaise and then dipping it in seasoned breadcrumbs to add a nice coating. The veal is cooked in batches and then kept warm in the oven. We are serving this with a tasty pancetta and vegetable side dish. You can add some boiled baby potatoes on the side too, if you like, or some fluffy white rice. Or else maybe you want to forego the carbs.

Start preparing the veal first, and then you will find about halfway through the recipe you will have the veal and the pancetta vegetables cooking at the same time, but this is not a complicated dish as long as you prepare all your ingredients before beginning. If the veal is done before the pancetta mixture, you can keep it warm in the oven until everything is ready. This is an unusual dish which boasts elegance along with myriad Italian flavors you will fall in love after the first bite.

You will need scallopine veal to make this dish. Scallopine are thinly pounded pieces of veal. Your butcher will be able to prepare some for you. The meat usually comes from a muscle and it is trimmed of fat and cut across the grain. There are plenty of veal scallopine recipes to choose from, each offering its own flavors. This one is quick and simple though, as well as tasty. Because the meat is so thin, it has a short cooking time; it will only take about 2 minutes per side to cook. Continue reading
