Veal Scallops with Artichoke Hearts
Sautéed veal scallops served with a simple lemon butter pan sauce with artichoke hearts.
2 pounds veal scallops (each about 1/8 inch thick)
All-purpose flour seasoned with salt and pepper for dredging veal
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1 cup chicken broth
1 (6-ounce) jar marinated artichoke hearts, drained, cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick slices
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
- Dredge the veal in the flour, shaking off the excess. In a large heavy skillet heat the oil and 2 tablespoons of the butter over medium-high heat, add veal and sauté until just cooked through, about 1 minute per side. Place cooked veal on platter and keep warm.
- To the skillet add the lemon juice and broth; simmer the mixture, stirring and scraping up the brown bits, for 2 minutes. Add the artichokes, and simmer the sauce for 2 minutes. Remove the pan from heat and mix in remaining 2 tablespoons butter. Season the sauce with salt and pepper. Spoon sauce over veal scallops and serve.
