Veal Veronique

veronique sauce 3

I found another packet of veal cutlets from Costco that I had bought a while ago. I usually divide up the whole package into 3 or 4 smaller portion ones and then use them as I uncover them in my freezer. I didn’t want to make Veal Parm, just didn’t want to deal with the breading, so I saw some red grapes in fridge and exclaimed “aha”! Veronique!

I washed and halved the red grapes and sliced some nice shallots

I floured and egg washed my cutlets, after I gave them a good “whack” with a rolling pin to tenderize them. I was also caramelizing the shallots at the same time. Once a multitasker, always a multitasker. Into the pan with the cutlets to brown them. veronique cutlets in pan

Once the cutlets are browned ( a la Francaise) I remove them and set aside. Then I deglazed the pan with this nice dessert wine, which is nice and raisiny tasting. Just right to go with the grapes. I get it every so often in my wine shipment so have more than a little to spare.

I swirled it all around and added about a cup of chicken stock, the grapes, about 2 Tbsp of dried tarragon and about 2 Tbsp of flour and whisked it up.

Nestle the cutlets back in the sauce and simmer to reduce the sauce by half and good the veal all the way throughveronique sauce 3

Et voila! Veronique!

I served over a little spaghetti with a side salad, but it also goes great with roasted potatoes! Enjoy!
