Recipe

Veal With Artichokes And Wild Mushrooms

  • Yield: 4 main-course servings

Ingredients

  • 8 veal medallions (2 to 3 ounces each), pounded about 1/4 inch thick
  • 2 teaspoons Emeril's Original Essence
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced shallots
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 cups sliced assorted fresh wild mushrooms
  • 1 cup blanched quartered artichoke hearts
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 6 turns freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, cut up, at room temperature

Directions

  • Place the veal medallions on a flat surface, sprinkle them on both sides with the Essence, and press the seasoning into the meat evenly.
  • Heat the oil in a large nonreactive skillet over high heat. Add the veal, shallots, garlic, mushrooms, artichoke hearts, green onions, salt, and pepper, and cook, stirring, for about 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Turn the veal, placing it on top of the vegetables. Stir in the lemon juice and the white wine and cook for 1 minute. Remove the veal and set aside. Cook the vegetables for 1 minute. Whisk in the cream and butter and bring to a boil. Return the veal to the skillet for 1 minute and remove from the heat. Remove the veal with tongs. You should have about 2 cups of the sauce and vegetables.
  • To serve, place 2 veal medallions on each of 4 plates and smother with 1/2 cup of the sauce.
