Ingredients

300 g veal cutlets
50 g Parma ham/Prosciutto 5 slices
4 leaves fresh sage 1 g
2 1/2 tbsp canola oil 38 mL
4 toothpicks
2 tbsp white wine [optional] 30 mL
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Before you start

If possible, choose «milk-fed veal» which is much younger and more tender than the grain-fed one. Have the cutlets sliced very thin, i.e. less than 3 mm. Keep the serving plates in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.

Method

  1. Tenderize the cutlets using a meat pounder. Cut them in pieces approximately the size of the prosciutto slices, or vice-versa. Place a leaf of sage on each piece and cover with a slice of prosciutto. Use a toothpick to keep the small sandwich together.
  2. Heat the oil in a pan until hot. Add the cutlets, veal side down, and cook over high heat. After 2 min, turn to brown the prosciutto side.
  3. Deglaze with the wine (optional). Lower the heat, cover, and cook for 2 min. Season with a little salt (prosciutto is already fairly salty) and pepper to taste.
  4. Place on the warmed plates, remove the toothpicks, and sprinkle with the cooking juices.
