  • 7 ounces veal cutlet cut into 8 medallions
  • 6 ounces white mushrooms sliced
  • ½ cup artichoke hearts sliced
  • 1 tsp lemon juice fresh
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • ¼ tsp onion powder
  • tsp black pepper
  • 2 ounces chicken stock or more if needed
  • 1 ounce white or rose wine optional
  • 1 tsp Italian parsley finely chopped for garnish


  • Cut the veal slices into medallions and pound them thin using a meat hammer.
  • Dredge the pounded veal in flour seasoned with salt and pepper. Set aside until needed.
  • Saute the mushrooms in olive oil over medium-high heat until they’re almost fully cooked. Add the floured veal to the pan.
  • When the veal has been cooked on both sides, add a little white wine to the pan to deglaze the pan and stop the cooking process. Remove from the heat.
  • Add the artichoke heart slices, lemon juice, chicken stock and seasonings to the pan.
  • Coat a tablespoon of butter with the seasoned flour you used for the veal and place it into the pan.
    The butter-flour compound is called a beurre manie.
  • Bring the veal piccata to a light boil, mixing the beurre manie into the sauce.
  • Garnish the dish with lemon slices and finely chopped Italian parsley.
