30-Minute Veal Piccata. So simple and tasty, you’ll want to eat it all the time.
Today’s my birthday, and what better way to celebrate than with my friend Maggie’s 30-Minute Veal Piccata? It is super easy and so scrumptious. Veal, lemon, a little rice flour, some butter and wine, and topped with delicious capers. I love this combination.
One time when I was visiting her I picked up some thinly sliced veal at the local grocery. Usually this cut of meat is called a veal cutlet. Maggie’s new local grocery store is amazing. It’s called Fresh Thyme Organic Farmers Market and it carries tons of organic produce and meat, lots of options for various products, and you can save money shopping there. Unless, of course, you’re like me and you go there every damn day.
We had the 30-Minute Veal Piccata with Lentil Sweet Potato Salad and Green Bean Tomato Salad over nice mixed greens. What a lovely meal. Some people serve Veal Piccata with pasta. That’s good, too. I know you’re gonna wanna eat this!
