My family likes veal and this comes out very tender and flavorful. Can't be any easier too. I like to add the toothpicks so you don't lose the ham and sage. Serve with polenta or potatoes covered in the sauce.

How to Make Veal Saltimbocca

Step-by-Step

  1. Cut the veal into small medallions, making 2-3 medallions per serving, pound veal but not too thin. Salt and pepper both sides of meat.
  2. Trim prosciutto to fit the medallion or fold it to fit. Layer one slice on each piece of veal and top with a sage leaf. Use a toothpick to secure, right down the center of the medallion.
  3. Flour each peice, shaking off excess flour
  4. Heat 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil and 2 tablespoons of butter in large skillet. Saute veal, ham side down first and the meat will adhere to the veal. Repeat until all the veal is done.
  5. Add the wine (or chicken stock) scraping up the little bits on the bottom. Cook down until desired consistency. Splash some lemon juice and finally add the butter for a nice gloss.
  6. Don't forget to remove the toothpicks
  7. Serve and enjoy
