Veal Marsala

by jerseygirl on March 11, 2009 · 21 comments

This is going to be a quickie. My kids are starving for dinner and here I am the blogging mom. Not very nice, right? I made this for dinner last night and my husband couldn’t thank me enough. My daughter was another story. She gets disgusted when I cook veal, but I guess you can’t please everyone. I followed this recipe exactly which is pretty surprising for me. It came from Cooking Light and was less than 200 calories per serving. You can’t beat that. I sauteed some baby spinach and served the veal on top of the spinach. I have to say it was delicious. Tomorrow I will be back to do a Barefoot Bloggers recipe. Good evening everyone!

Veal Marsala ( from Cooking Light)

1 pound veal scaloppine
1/4 cup all-purpose flour, divided
2/3 cup beef consomme`
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup dry marsala wine
1 cup presliced mushrooms
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
Dredge veal in 3 tablespoons flour. Combine 1 tablespoon flour and consommé, stirring with a whisk; set aside. Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add veal, cook 1 1/2 minutes. Turn veal over; cook 1 minute. Remove veal from pan. Add wine to pan, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Add consommé mixture, mushrooms, and salt; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 3 minutes or until thick. Return veal to pan; sprinkle with parsley.

I love veal marsala but have yet to try making it. A low cal version to boot? I’ll have to give it a try.

Lisa, I love Veal Marsala, so you hooked me with the title of your post. I live in an area of the country where veal is hard to come by and I really miss the availability we enjoyed when living on the East coast. This is a nice recipe.

Short and sweet and wonderful. My hubby will appreciate this…maybe I will tell the kids it is chicken?

I’ve never been a veal fan like your daughter, but I’d love to try this sauce!

Wow – less than 200 calories for such a delicious meal is great! I’ve never cooked veal, but is sounds like a really easy tasty recipe.

I’m laughing that she gets grossed out by the veal and not the mushrooms. It looks delicious to me. I love veal marsala. I also do with it with turkey cutlets.

I love veal, but I hardly ever get to eat it! That’s just wrong. This looks delicious… all smothered in shrooms and that oh-so-sweet marsala. Yum

You can’t go wrong with a marsala dish, especially paired with a rich meat like veal. Gorgeous photo!

I love marsala Lisa. I love it so much that I have tried to come up with a vegan dish (with portobella mushrooms)–it was good.
I’ve never made it with veal though, but yours looks so good.

Lis,
This is my husband’s all time favorite dish, but I have to take out the mushrooms before serving!
