How to Make Veal Florentine

Step-by-Step

  1. In a re-sealable bag, combine flour, paprika, garlic salt and black pepper; set aside. Pat dry veal and place it on a cutting board lined with plastic wrap. Place another cling film over the meat and pound down to ½-inch thick using a meat mallet. Place one cutlet at a time in flour mixture; shake off excess flour, transfer to a plate while dredging the others.
  2. Preheat oven to 375ºF. In a large skillet over medium high-heat, add 1 tbsp. clarified butter and 1 tbsp. oil. When hot, working in batches, put in couple veal cutlets; sear them 1 ½ minutes per side. Transfer cutlets in a 9x13-inch baking dish lightly greased.
  3. When cutlets are all done, in the same skillet, add another tbsp. clarified butter and 1 tbsp. oil. Add shallots and sauté for 1 ½ minutes. Add mushrooms and sprinkle a pinch ground sea salt; cook until golden brown, about 5 minutes. 3 minutes after mushrooms are sautéed, add lemon zest; continue cooking the ingredients. Add garlic and sauté for 1 minute. Pour in wine and half-and-half; stir and simmer for 5 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, in a large pot over medium-high heat, add butter and when melted, add spinach, stir well and cover for 30 seconds. Stir again and cover; this shouldn’t take more than 1 ½ minutes to wilt spinach. Transfer to a colander to drain.
  5. In a bowl, combine parmesan and mozzarella cheese; mix well.
  6. To assemble the dish, spoon sauce over cutlets and top with spinach. Sprinkle with cheese mixture and chopped parsley. Transfer to preheated oven and cook for 10-15 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165ºF and cheese is lightly browned. Serve over spaghettini. Makes 4 servings
