A bright, tasty citrus sauce matches perfectly with veal, especially in this easy sauté. If you like, spike the dish with a few dashes of bottled red pepper sauce. In any case, serve it with wilted chard or steamed asparagus.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Press peppercorns into both sides of veal medallions. (They will not completely coat the veal.) Season with salt.

  • Heat 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the veal and cook until golden outside and faintly pink inside, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and tent with foil to keep warm.

  • Add the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil to the pan. Add shallot and cook, stirring, until softened, about 1 minute. Add juice, vinegar and tomato paste. Bring to a boil, scraping up any browned bits. Cook until the liquid is reduced by half, about 4 minutes. Stir in scallions and any accumulated juices from the veal. Season with salt. Divide the veal among 4 plates and top with the sauce. Serve immediately.


Ask your butcher for the boneless veal; for a less expensive alternative, use pork tenderloin.

delicious! This is a wonderful recipe that I have been making for years and years. It is easy and delicious and will make you look like a gourmet chef at any dinner party you might host. Only departure for the recipe is that I cook the chops longer I like them well done. Other than that I follow it faithfully and it has never failed me. Pros: easy delicious and awesome presentation Read More
