  • 1½ lbs. thin veal cutlets
  • Salt and ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 4 Tbsp. butter, divided
  • 8 oz. fresh cremini mushrooms, sliced

  • Sprinkle cutlets with salt and pepper. Dredge veal in flour to coat lightly.
  • In a large skillet over medium heat, combine olive oil and 2 tablespoons butter. Add several veal pieces and sauté, turning once, until browned. Remove browned veal from the skillet and repeat with remaining cutlets.
