all purpose flour
salt and pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 cup chicken stock
4 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons capers rinsed and chopped
2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
1• Pound veal (already portioned by butcher) with a meat mallet until an even thickness has been achieved.
2• Lightly dust with flour on both sides.
3• Add olive oil and butter in a frying pan over moderately high heat for at least 2 minutes on each side. Season and transfer to plate.
4• Add the wine to the pan and increase the heat to high and boil until there are just 3 tablespoons of liquid left.
