💭 Eileen's Tips for Success
- Be sure your veal cutlets are thin. If not, gently pound them to about ⅛th of an inch.
- Pat the cutlet dry before coating them in flour to ensure the cutlets will brown nicely.
- Seasoning the flour will add extra flavor to the cutlets.
- Use a non-stick skillet which helps keep the flour coating on the veal.
- Preheat the saute pan to medium-high heat before adding the cutlets. The veal will brown properly and not get oily.
- Do NOT overcook the veal cutlets. They take about 3 minutes to cook through.
- Cut the veggies into even wedges to roast evenly.
