The Marsala sauce, when made with DRY Marsala wine, is not too sweet. This recipe can be used with veal, pork or chicken. I prepare this dish on a regular basis as it is quick, simple and delicious. This recipe can be made ahead of time. Simply reduce the amount of time to 5 minutes that the meat is simmered in step 4 to 5 minutes. Place meat in a covered casserole dish, finish off sauce according to directions above, pour sauce over meat and refrigerate. Reheat the dish in either an oven preheated to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 15 minutes OR simmer in a pan on top of the stove just until hot.

  • Pour most of the fat off from the skillet; add wine and 1/4 cup of the stock and bring to a boil over high heat for 1 or 2 minutes, scraping the bottom and sides of the skillet.

  • Return meat to skillet; cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, basting meat with pan juices occasionally. Transfer meat to a platter.

  • Add remaining 1/4 cup stock to skillet and bring to a boil, scraping bottom and sides of skillet. When sauce has reduces to a thick, syrupy consistency, remove from heat and season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir in 2 tablespoons softened butter and pour sauce over meat.

This recipe was scrumptious. I dipped the veal in egg before coating with flour mixture with a small amount of seasoned bread crumbs (just enough to give the veal more texture when cooking) I also doubled all the ingredients (except veal) and added mushrooms in step 3. Before adding the remaining chicken stock (I used chicken broth) I mixed 2tsp of cornstarch w/ the broth. This Recipe is definitely a keeper Thanks Terri!! Read More

to the previous reviewer the term scallops in this recipe refers to the cut of the veal not actual scallops. Read More

I was so tempted to rate this significantly lower than four stars for the sheer reason that if you were to cook veal scallopine as long as this recipe tells you to you'd totally ruin this dish. Totally. Saute the veal 2-3 minutes a side and leave it at that. Lean tender veal needs very little cooking time. Having said that if you don't overcook this it's out of this world (5-star) awesome delicious. Chicken breasts turkey cutlets or lean pork pounded thin would be fine substitutes for expensive veal scallopine. Best served with a lightly seasoned pasta (garlic and olive oil). For something a little different however I served this with "Linguine with Marinated Tomato and Basil " also from this site. Read More

very good recipe! My husband who normally doesn't like marsala thought it was great! So did I! Just be sure to pound all veal before breading so that it will truly be tender! Read More

This came out very well. My mother couldn't stop obsessing about it tasted like 'restaurant food'. I substituted chicken breasts for the veal due to budget constraints but I think the general idea of the dish was able to shine through despite this. One thing I would change for next time would be to use reduced salt chicken broth instead of the bouillon as I found it quite salty. I must reiterate that this is really good though. Hell my mom's making tomorrow night she liked it so much! Thank you Terri Lyons. Read More

This was very good. I used half chicken stock and half beef stock for a more full bodied sauce. I also used sweet marsala and a bit of sherry as that is what I had on hand. I increased the stock to compensate for the sweetness of the marsala and added a bit more butter. Very good recipe! Read More

This was a hit. I made it ahead following the steps being careful not to over cook. Sauce separated in reheating but it was still delicious. Read More
