    Veal Marsala (Gluten-Free)

    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    Veal Marsala is one of my all-time favorite Italian dishes. A true classic that is quick, delicious, easy to make, and sure to please.

    Ingredients:
    6 veal cutlets (about 3-4 ounces each)
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    4 tablespoons unsalted butter
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1 large shallot, finely chopped
    3 garlic cloves, smashed
    2 ounces crimini or porcini mushrooms, sliced
    ½ cup sweet Marsala wine
    1 tablespoon lemon juice
    1 cup beef or veal demiglace* or 3/4 cup gluten-free beef broth
    ½ teaspoon of fresh rosemary
    ¼ teaspoon oregano, dried
    ¼ teaspoon thyme, dried
    2 tablespoons chopped fresh Italian parsley

    Directions:
    Sprinkle the veal with salt, pepper, oregano and thyme.

    Melt 1 tablespoon of butter and 1 tablespoon of oil in a heavy large skillet over medium-high heat.

    Add 3 veal cutlets and cook until golden brown, about 1 ½ minutes per side. Transfer the veal to a plate. Add another tablespoon of butter and oil, if necessary. Repeat with the remaining 3 cutlets. Set the cutlets aside.

    Add 1 tablespoon of butter to the skillet. Add the shallot and garlic and parsley. Saute until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

    Add a tablespoon of the olive oil, if necessary. Add the mushrooms and cook about 3 minutes, until tender and the juices evaporate. Add a pinch of salt.

    Add the Marsala. Simmer until the Marsala reduces by half, about 2 minutes. Add the demiglace or broth, lemon juice and the rosemary leaves. Simmer about 4 minutes, until reduced by half.

    Put the veal back into the skillet. Pour in all of the pan juices. Cook just until heated about 1 minute, turning to coat.

    Blend remaining 1 tablespoon of butter into the sauce. Season the sauce with salt and pepper, to taste.

    Place veal on plates. Spoon the sauce over the veal and serve.

    Note: I find this recipe goes great with risotto.
