Recipe Ingredients:

1 pound veal leg cutlets, cut 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon sweet paprika
1/8 teaspoon ground white pepper

2/3 cup dry white wine
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

  2. Heat 1/2 tablespoon butter in large nonstick skillet over medium heat until melted. Place 2 or 3 cutlets in skillet; cook 2 to 3 minutes or until veal is cooked through, turning once. Remove cutlets; keep warm. Repeat with 1/2 tablespoon butter and remaining cutlets.
  3. Add wine and lemon juice to skillet; increase heat to medium-high. Cook and stir until browned bits attached to skillet are dissolved and liquid is reduced by half. Remove from heat.
